We are going to have a brief look at both days, to see what players have progressed and which once fell.

There were 153 players taking part in Day 1a, though by the time the day ended there were just 63 left. It was Raj Vohra that ended the first flight with the most chips as he bagged up 262,700 on the night.

Players eliminated from Day 1a included Victor Ramdin, Adam Levy, Allen Kessler and Joe Serock, though the latter did re-enter in Day 1b and make it through safely.
