After another nine levels of play, day 1B of the Card Player Poker Tour $5,000 Venetian main event is a wrap and 2009 World Series of Poker main event champion Joe Cada headlines the top stacks of the 147 survivors.

Cada surged to the top of the stacks near the end of the day with a crucial double up when his pocket queens held up against ASpade SuitKSpade Suit on a 3Diamond Suit3Spade Suit2Spade Suit9Club Suit board. The four-time WSOP bracelet winner finished with 161,400, good for fifth from the day 1B field.

Ghattas Kortas bagged 185,000 and finished with the biggest stack from Wednesday. Javier Zarco (182,400), Peter Braglia (182,100) and Ubaid Gada (163,200) round out the top stacks.

Zarco, a top pro from Spain with more than $2.4 million in tournaments earnings, had the second-best score of his career at the Venetian when he finished runner-up in a $3,500 no-limit hold’em event in 2017 for $557,804.

The 147 players that made it through day 1B, will join yesterday’s 33 day 1A survivors, bringing back at least 180 players for the start of day 2. They will all be chasing Barry Hutter, who holds the overall chip lead after finishing day 1A with 196,600.

There were 93 entries on day 1A and another 354 entries on day 1b, which brings the total field size thus far to 447 entries, already passing the $2 million guaranteed prize pool. Registration and re-entry is still open until the start of the day’s fourth level, so it’s likely that the field will grow beyond the current total. Starting Thursday, levels will be increased to 75 minutes.

Other notables to bag big stacks on day 1B include Trung Pham, Bryan Piccioli, David Williams, Kahle Burns, Hafiz Khan, Tony Gargano, and JC Tran. Freddy Deeb, Kristen Bicknell, Lily Kiletto, Lauren Roberts, Paul Volpe, John Phan, Will Givens, Will Kassouf, Brian Yoon and Ankush Mandavia also put chips in a bag at the end of the night.

Chance Kornuth, Anthony Zinno, Ryan Phan, Matt Stout, Chris Hunichen and Ludovic Geilich were among the notables who failed to finish the day with chips. They all still have time to take another shot at this event if they choose to.
