$400 NLHE Main Event (Re-Entry)
Level 14: 1,200/2,400/300 Ante
Players Remaining: 32

For the second flight in a row, we had a runaway leader.  Ira Malis blew away the field in Day 1C of the PPC Champion of Champions Main Event to lead the flight and take the overall chip lead in the tournament.

Malis bagged 306,100 chips for Day 1C’s top count.  Adam White finished in second with 204,000 followed by Albert Smith who scored 180,100 for third.  Steve Nooralian was fourth with 179,600 chips and James Sloat closed out the top five with 152,500.

Day 1C added 138 entries pushing the total for the tournament up to 277 with one flight still to go.  32 players advanced from the flight but Marshall Tarzy had bagged in an earlier flight.  So 31 more players will head to Sunday taking the total number up to 63.  Day 1D is in play now as another group of hopefuls will look to reach Sunday and play for the PPC Champion of Champions Main Event title.  Registration will close for the final flight at approximately 10:45 PM this evening.  Everyone who advances to Day 2 will return on Sunday at 12:15 PM.
