Total PNIA Main Event Entries: 542
Total PNIA Main Event Day 1B Entries: 355
Players Remaining: 50
About 50 players have bagged their chips and moved on to Day 2 of the Poker Night in America Main Event. Leading the Day 1B flight and the overall field is Michael Dentale, who gradually built during the early stages of play and then turned on the accelerator toward the end to put 422,000 in the bag.
Dentale is the headliner, but there are plenty of talented players who bagged heaps and are in a position to catch Dentale on Day 2. Among those players, Johanssy Joseph, Justin Liberto, Todd Breyfogle and Henry Meacham will all be looking to make their move on Day 2 in anticipation of Monday’s final table.
The full list of chip counts from this flight will be posted tomorrow, but in the meantime, below is a list of some of the larger chip counts from Day 1B.
