Day 1B of the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open saw an unofficial field of 602 entries, and that put the unofficial total field size at 1,110 entries, easily surpassing the $3 million guarantee to create a prizepool worth more than $5.3 million. There were 197 survivors from this flight, securing seats for Day 2, which begins tomorrow (Sunday) at 12:00 noon.

Taylor Wilson (pictured) is at the top after Day 1B, bagging an impressive stack of 526,000 thanks to a strong run deep into the day. Other top stacks were bagged by Ranganath Kanchi (505,000), and Ryan Roussel (430,500) to round out the top three.

Full chip counts from both Day 1 flights, along with the Day 2 table and seat draw, will be posted here later tonight. Day 2 begins tomorrow (Sunday) at 12:00 noon, with the remaining field of 348 players returning for ten more levels of poker.
