Day 1b of Event #4: $500 The Reunion No-Limit Hold'em has concluded. The second flight drew a field of 4,455 entries, a significant increase from yesterday during Day 1a of this $5,000,000 guarantee tournament. Only 204 of them survived the flight and will return for Day 2 on Monday, October 4th at 10 a.m. local time, where they will mix with the surviving players of Day 1a and the upcoming Day 1c.
Robert Brobyn bagged the top stack of 5,015,000 chips partly thanks to a run he went on at the end of the day where he accumulated a large number of chips. In one hand he got queens in against jacks and held, and in another, he found an ace while holding ace-king over kings.
A selection of the other notable stacks heading into Day 2 include Darryl Ronconi (2,030,000), Jeremy Wien (1,625,000), Roland Israelashvili (750,000), and Barry Greenstein (500,000).
Some of the players who fell short of bagging a stack include Shaun Deeb, Qui Nguyen, Dan Shak, Matt Berkey, and Ryan Depaulo. However, they will have an opportunity to play in the final starting flight if they choose to with Day 1c starting on Sunday at 10 a.m. local time.
