Michael Newman

Flight A is down to 60 players in the field and they are more likely to hit the 12% hard stop before playing through 18 full levels.

Michael Newman is making late moves as he is prone to do in these bigger field events. He sent one player to the rail in a blind-versus-blind battle to push his stack a few chips shy of 100,000.

On the other end of the spectrum, fellow regular Richard Rice moved all in with his short stack for 15,600 only to see his neighbor shove for more right behind. Rice was in trouble with AhJh against KsKh and he couldn’t catch an ace on the Ts5c2s7c6d board to send him to the registration desk for Flight B.
