Once the Money Bubble burst for Flight A, the remaining 65 players bagged up their chips for Day 2, which begins Sunday at 1:00 pm. Everyone who bagged chips for Day 2 will finish in the money, though those payouts won’t be known until registration has closed for all eight starting flights.

Action ended with 24:47 remaining in Level 18, with blinds at 4,000-8,000 with an 8,000 ante. Day 2 will begin with the blinds where they were for whichever flight finished the earliest.

The full list of official chip counts for this flight will be posted soon, but here is a preview of the top five:

1.  Judson Bennett  –  525,000  (66 bb)
2.  Ivan Ruban  –  511,000  (64 bb)
3.  Jessica Perez Borrego  –  505,000  (63 bb)
4.  David Umana  –  467,000  (58 bb)
