Event 5A: Flight 1A Ends Early

$150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 15: 1.5k/3k/500 ante

Action was so fast in the opening flight of Event 5 that they stopped play early. Flight 1A drew 261 participants and they were scheduled to play 16 levels or 10% of the field, whichever came first.

With the magic number set at 27 remaining, the field hit that mark at the midpoint of Level 15. Staff paused the clock with 14:48 left in the level and players bagged up their chips for Day 2 on Wednesday. TJ Shulman finished 1A with an early lead with five more flights left to play.

Top Flight 1A stacks:

TJ Shulman – 411,500
Jacques Alabre – 275,000
Errol Rosen – 215,000
Steven McKoy – 165,500
