Flight B of the Main Event in Kansas City has come to a close. Read this post for a recap as well as links to Day 2 seat assignments and full payouts.
The second and final flight of the $1,650 Main Event at Ameristar Casino Hotel Kansas City drew 183 entries. That built a two-day total of 290 total entries.
Those numbers built a prize pool of $411,800. There were 31 players who advanced from Flight B. That group will join the 17 that made it through Flight A for Day 2 action tomorrow.
Of the 48 players returning, 31 are guaranteed a mincash of $3,747. Tomorrow's field will play to nine players. Those final nine will return Monday to play down to a winner under the bright lights of the HPT televised final table. Monday's winner will collect $94,713. Click HERE for a full list of payouts.
The final table will be streamed at twitch.tv/hptpoker on a 20-minute delay. However, the Missouri Gaming Commission does not allow RFID technology so no hole cards will be shown until the table's one-hour TV episode airs nationally in a few months.
Saied Moradi accumulated more chips than any other player in Flight B. Moradi will start Day 2 with 526,000. Eric Medved (pictured) was the only other player to bag over 500k chips.
Nick Pupillo, Jeff Fielder, Greg Radosh and Shawn McCracken all bagged healthy stacks as well. Click HERE for a full list of chip counts from Flight B.

Play will resume at 12:00pm Sunday. Click HERE for Day 2 seat assignments.
