Day 1b of Event #6: $365 GIANT No-Limit Hold'em attracted 969 entrants who created a $117,052 prize pool. 146 players secured a min-cash of $557. Once the bubble burst, the remaining day brought many casualties to reduce the surviving field to just 53 players.

Jon Turner bagged the chip lead with 2,265,000 after making a crazy comeback. He went from less than a blind to ending the day as massive chip leader.

"I was all in blind at some point, I had less than a blind left, I had 1,700,'' Turner commented. When asked how he managed to rebuild to such a massive stack, he said: ''I won a few flips. Jacks vs ace-king twice.'' Aces vs king-queen'' he added.

Turner has 59 cashes and $1,235,652 in earnings at the WSOP. He will be looking to win his first WSOP bracelet. Another notable player who survived Day 1b was Matt Salsberg, who bagged 205,000.

Some of the players that gave it a shot, but didn't find a bag in today's flight are Felipe Mojave, Barry Greenstein and Chris Ferguson.

Among those who will be back for Day 2 on June 30 are Matas Cikinas (1,570,000), Joel Gossett (915,000), Ray Medlin (945,000) and Roy Shimada (825,000). Three more starting flights are scheduled for the GIANT, across the next three Fridays as Day 1c takes place on June 15 and Day 1d on June 22 while the last chance to make it through will be on Day 1e (June 29). Survivors from all five starting days will then return on Saturday, June 30 at 12 p.m. to continue playing for the WSOP bracelet.

Cards & Chips

Welcome to the second Day 1 flight of Event #6: $365 GIANT No-Limit Hold'em.

Day 1a attracted 1,289 entries, and 194 players cashed, with a min-cash worth $557. Justin Sternberg ended Day 1a as the chip leader with an impressive stack of 1,215,000.
This is the second of five Friday night flights with the remainder on June 15, 22, and 29, with Day 2 on Saturday June 30.

Cards will be in the air at 7 p.m. and play will conclude after twenty one 20-minute levels or when the field is down to 10 players, whichever comes first. There will be 20-minute breaks every six levels. Late registration will be available for nine levels and will close at approximately 10:20 p.m.

Players will get into the money on Day 1. Anyone surviving their Day 1 will have their chips put into play on Day 2 (if they choose not to forfeit them to attempt another flight). Once a player bags chips, they are no longer eligible to participate in additional starting flights. This event features unlimited reentry during the open registration period. People can end up cashing in multiple flights, however, only one chip stack can be carried forward to Day 2 play.

The Giant will pay 15% of the field, based on the individual flight number of entries, and everyone on Day 1 who cashes can receive their prize money that day. The remaining prize money from each flight gets carried over to Day 2, along with the other flights’ remaining prize money, to combine and create the remaining prize pool the Day 2 players will vie for.
