Harvey Bags 497k to Lead Day 1A


Your starting flight has nothing to do with the number of chips you bag, as Mike Harvey proved Thursday night in the 117-entry Day 1A. Harvey, who has a number of big cashes in NorCal tourneys, ran his stack up to an impressive 497,000 by the time the bag-n-tag was reached with 20 minutes left in Level 17.

Harvey set the top-stack-mark very high, let's see how players run in the next three flights as they establish their places on the Day 2 Leaderboard. Below are all 12 players who moved on, and their chipcounts.
