Total Players Remaining: 179
Day 1C is officially over and roughly 100 players have advanced to tomorrow’s Day 2. Scott Armstrong looks to be in the lead with 451,000 after coming on strong to finish the night. Armstrong picked up most of his chips in the last level of play and will start Day as the overall chip leader. Play will resume tomorrow at 12:00 pm in the Grand Theater as the survivors from the three starting flights will combine as one and play down to a final table of five.
Joining Thompson for Day 2 from this flight is a talented collection of players that include Craig Varnell, Schuyler Thornton and defending Poker Night in America Main Event Champion Kim Dao, who flew under the radar for most of the day but managed to bag a tad under 200,000
A full seat draw for tomorrow’s Day 2 along with a list of the combined chip counts will be posted when it is available but in the meantime, below is a list of some of the top chip counts from Day 1C.
