The second flight of Event #3: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em is officially in the books. At the end of the night it was Jerry Payne who bagged up the top stack with 99,425 in chips.

This field saw many notable names hit the felt on their quest for WSOP glory. Unfortunately, not all of those players were able to progress onto the second day of play. The likes of Scott Montgomery, Humberto Brenes, JC Tran, Paul Volpe, David "Bakes" Baker, Eugene Katchalov, Lauren Kling, and DJ MacKinnon all hit the rail before play concluded.

While those players faltered, others thrived. A small sample size of those returning tomorrow includes Charles Sylvestre (85,600), Leo Wolpert (45,375), David Singer (27,500), Tony Dunst (26,150), Josh Arieh (25,950), Kyle Cartwright (19,125), Matt Glantz (18,800), and Bryan Devonshire (6,600).

These players will be joined by players to advance from the first flight. Leading Day 1a was high-stakes regular Scott Seiver who bagged up 65,000 to finish the day. Other notable names from the first flight include Amanda Baker (47,025), Amanda Musumeci (36,500), Jacob Balsiger, (36,500), Justin Young (34,400), Nam Le (31,500), Carlos Mortenson (18,000), and Michael Phelps (8,825)

The field will combine with the Day 1a flight tomorrow and play will resume at 1:00 PM local time. Be sure to stay tuned to PokerNews for all of the latest updates as we enter the second day of play!

Small Hit To Dunst

[user196676] • Level 8: 200-400, 25 ante

The flop read {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{6-Spades} and Tony Dunst was heads up with an opponent. There was a check to Dunst and he bet out 1,100. A call prompted the {8-Hearts} to fall on the turn where both players checked.

The river was the {6-Clubs} and Dunst's opponent bet 3,200. Dunst mucked and the pot was pushed to his opponent.

Cartwright Ships River

[user196676] • Level 8: 200-400, 25 ante

Picking up with the action on a board of {5-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades}, we found Kyle Cartwright and opponent heads up with well over 5,500 in the middle. Cartwright's opponent bet 2,400 and the circuit grinder called the bet.

Fifth street wast he {4-Spades} and Cartwright's opponent checked. Cartwright moved all in for what looked like 7,175 and his opponent went into the tank. Roughly one minute passed before he finally let it go and Cartwright dragged in the pot. He's now sitting on about 19,500.

One For Arieh

[user196676] • Level 7: 150-300, 25 ante

Josh Arieh opened to 800 from under the gun and the player to his immediate left called. The rest of the table folded and the two took in a flop of {3-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{7-Spades}. Arieh continued for 1,100 and received a call.

Fourth street brought the {Q-Hearts} and both players checked their option. The dealer produced the {9-Diamonds} on fifth street and Arieh fired 3,200. His opponent folded and Arieh dragged in the pot. He now has about 20,500 in chips.
