Flight C ended at the end of Level 17, so it’s technically the start of Level 18 with blinds at 4,000-8,000 with an 8,000 ante.

There were 58 survivors who bagged chips from this flight, and the chipleader is Michael Merisier with 651,000 (81 big blinds). Here are the three big stacks who bagged up at least 400K:

1.  Michael Merisier  –  651,000  (81 bb)
T-2.  Justin Datloff  –  448,000  (56 bb)
T-2.  James Ensign  –  448,000  (56 bb)

These 58 players will return to action on Sunday at 1:00 pm for Day 2, and everyone who bags chips for Day 2 will finish in the money.

There will be eight starting flights for this event (two per day), and Flight D is already underway with registration open until 10:30 pm tonight.
