Day 1a of Event #60: $888 Crazy Eights No-Limit Hold'em 8-Handed is over and done with. This flight had a total of 1,506 entries, which beats the total of last year, as that was 1,291 but with re-entries only allowed for the next flight. A min-cash today was worth $1,334, and 226 players finished in the money. The day wrapped up with 58 players who will return for Day 2 on Monday, together with the survivors from Days 1b, 1c and 1d.

The chip leader of the day is Seville Hale with 713,000 chips. Hale has cashed three times already in this series but will have his heart set on a deep run in this tournament. He currently has other big stacks behind him, including Jamie Rosen (589,000), Marius Pertea (514,000), Jason Wheeler (491,000), Jeffrey Bozier II (438,000), Eric Baldwin (424,000), and Joshua Kays (423,000).

There are two more flights that players can enter tomorrow — one at 10 a.m. and the last flight at 4 p.m. For both events, late registration will be open until the start of Level 9.

All players that get through these four flights will come together on Monday and play Day 2 at 2 p.m. in the Miranda Room. Make sure to keep your eyes on PokerNews to see who makes it to Day 2.
