Flight B came to an end with 41 players advancing to Day 2, and action ended in the final hand of Level 16, so this flight would have played their next hand with the full hour remaining in Level 17 (4,000/8,000 with an 8,000 ante).

Here are the top five chip stacks from Flight B:

1.  Frankie Flowers  –  579,000
2.  Rayden Abreu  –  535,500
3.  Constantinos Liapis  –  447,500
4.  Ginold Cham  –  446,000
5.  Cesar Mendoza Gomez  –  371,500

The surviving players are all guaranteed at least $700 for a min-cash on Day 2, though the full prizepool won’t be available until registration has closed in all eight flights.

There were five players who bagged chips in both flights. Their largest stack will advance to Day 2, and they received $2,500 each as their smaller stacks were pulled from the tournament. Here are the five players with multi-stack payouts from Flight B:

Frankie Flowers  –  $2,500
Stephen Ibrahim  –  $2,500
David Nathaniel, Jr.  –  $2,500
Sean Shah  –  $2,500
Jason Young  –  $2,500

There will be two more flights tomorrow (Friday), with Flight C beginning at 11:00 am (registration open until 5:45 pm), and Flight D beginning at 5:00 pm (registration open until 11:45 pm).
