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.
