888Live Easter Edition London: Chris Moorman Third in Chips After 1b

In almost a mirror image of yesterday’s 90 players, 92 players entered flight 1b of the 888Live London Easter Edition, and by the end of the day’s ten levels it was Dan Wicks who leads the 20 remaining players with a monster stack of 382,000.

This is over 100,000 chips more than yesterday’s chip leader Hoa Quan, who finished with 256,200. Other big stacks in the room include Egidijus Alsauskas (297,500), Ali Zihni (237,000) and non-other than 888Poker Ambassador Chris Moorman (241,500).

The day started quickly, with more than 60 players registered by the first break. The day would continue with players such as Kelly Saxby and Chris Moorman taking their seats in the Main Event, the latter of whom stated on Twitter that he was aiming to beat his fellow ambassador Sofia Lövgren’s stack of 250,600 which was good enough for second in chips in Day 1a.

The remaining 20 will join the 22 from Day 1a in Day 2 on Sunday. Before then there are two more flights. Flight 1c gets underway at 1 pm on Saturday, with Flight 1d being a special Turbo edition taking place from 6 pm on Saturday. The Turbo flight consists of half the level times, and will be players’ last chance to grab their place in Day 2 and to get that little bit closer to securing a slice of the £100,000 guaranteed prize pool.
