Level 12 (1,200/2,400/400)Day 1B Entrants: 88Total Entrants: 162Day 1B Players Remaining: 20Chip Average: 88,000 Mike Marn almost went wire-to-wire to claim the chip lead but a last-minute push by Chris Staats (pictured) gave him 5,000 more than Marn to wrap up Day 1B. Staats took a pot that potentially could have been much larger against Jeff Tebben to end the night with 223,500.  On a board of Q♦9♦2♦6♥, Staats bet 5,500 in early position and Tebben called from two seats over.

A few more should be eliminated before play ends this evening and then all remaining entrants will bag and tag for Sunday's Day 2.  The race for the chip lead remains competitive and it is likely for a player to move into the clubhouse lead heading into Day 1C.   Day 1B is winding down and during this break in the action, we would like to thank our sponsor for the 2017 Fall Tour Season.

Level 11 (1,000/2,000/300)Day 1B Entrants: 88Total Entrants: 162Day 1B Players Remaining: 26Chip Average: 67,700 It's been a swingy day for RunGood's Chris Conrad (pictured), who has had his stack go to all ends of the spectrum on Day 1B. Heading into the last level of the night, Conrad is back on the upswing after doubling up.  The player under the gun opened to 5,600 and the button three-bet shoved for 41,500.

Conrad said he's improved to "one out of five" in flips today and this latest...
