Level 12 (800/1,600/200)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 77
Players Remaining: 19
Phil Mader caught some late heat and bagged one of the top-five stacks from Day 1A.
The first of two flights in the RunGood Council Bluffs Main Event is officially wrapped and 19 players from the 77 who entered have punched their ticket to Sunday's Day 2. Leading the way from the flight is Tyler Tabman, who continued to chip up toward the end of the night and will bring 143,100 into Day 2.
Among the players who came on late and bagged over 100,000 include Phil Mader, Ryan Phan, and Greg Jennings, who was able to spin up a Level 11 bullet. Tony Pleskac was not able to hold his pace from earlier in the flight and it remains to be seen if we will see him tomorrow.
Tomorrow's Day 1B should provide a field size similar to this one and all players will have Tabman's lofty stack to look up to. A full list of chip counts will be posted when it is available. Below is a look at the chip leaders from the flight.
Tyler Tabman - 143,100
Greg Jennings - 128,200
Ryan Phan - 108,000
