Saelee Bags Top 1A Stack


15 levels are done in Day 1A of the $300,000 Guaranteed $365 buy-in @WSOP Circuit Event 1 and 24 players - from a starting field of 192 - move on to Sunday's 11am start for Day 2.

Lay Saelee took over the chiplead in Level 12 and held it for the final three levels of play, bagging 195,000.

Glen Chileski picked up a big double one hand before the end of the night, all in on a 7-high board with pocket Queens, only to run in to pocket Aces. Chileski turned a queen and eliminated Mike Harvey, plus took his other challenger down to 2BB. That player was eliminated on the final hand of play today.

Here are the 24 player moving on to Sunday in search of the first WSOP Circuit TVPokerRoom ring of 2018.
