Day 1B attracted 222 entries, substantially more than last night’s flight. The last starting flight for this edition of the Playground 200 starts at 11:00am tomorrow morning, and the guarantee will be met when the first card is pitched.
Tonight, the Day 2 field was doubled. Its chips leader is still Jerry Joseph Jaber, surprisingly. Bigger fields usually produce bigger bags, but tonight was different. Chips were volatile, and many leaders had to step down from their position, instead of reinforcing it.
It was the case for Mingzhe Zhang and Martin Gélinas, who were both on their way to send commanding stacks to Day 2, but had to settle for a wobbly qualification.
Richard Moreau, who picked up some crazy speed in the last few levels, finished on top of Day 1B’s final standings, with 271,000 chips. George Ciucuireanu is not too far behind, with 264,500 chips. They rank 3rd and 4th on the Day 2 qualifiers’ list, which will be updated shortly. 47 names will be added to the list, which is now 95-name deep. Sunday will definitely be fun day!
The Playground 200 rolls on tomorrow with Day 1C.
