Play ends with 21 minutes remaining in Level 17
The Day 1A field for the Main Event hit the hard stop of 21 players with 21 minutes remaining in Level 17. The advancing players logged in about a 13.5 hour day when all the chips were bagged. Anthony Allison ended with the chip lead after amassing 800,000 with an unconventional style.
Dylan Lemery (724,000) and Ronald Taylor (714,000) are on his heels and then there’s a big gap until St. Louis pro Paul Fehlig with 497,000. Andruw Todhunter, Eric Salazar and Donovan Dean bagged up average stacks. Cody Stanford, Spencer Champlin and Trent Bennett have some work to do at the bottom of the counts.
These players join the advancing field from Day 1B that runs on Saturday. All players resume for Day 2 on Sunday at noon to play down to the final table.
