Jerry Wong wins first ring and Joshua Hood bags monster chip lead on Day 1A of the main event 

Coconut Creek, FL (21 September 2018) - Friday marked the start of the final weekend of the WSOP Circuit stop at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek and it was the kickoff of the Circuit's staple event - the $1,700 no-limit hold'em main event. 

The first of two starting flights drew 323 entries and by the end of the day's 15 levels, only 75 remained with Joshua Hood bagging a massive chip lead. He finished the day with 536,000, which is more than double Mitchell Lekarczyk, who finished second in chips with 265,000. Lekarcyzk is fresh off of a ring win last night in the $400 no-limit hold'em monster stack.

Running alongside the main event was the $2,200 no-limit hold'em high roller. When play resumed at 2 p.m., registration closed and there were 20 players remaining after four players took their option to buy-in on Day 2. Jerry Wong bested the 69-entry field and won his first Circuit ring and $48,300. He wasn't the only former November Niner at the final table. 2015 WSOP Main Event runner-up Josh Beckley finished third.

The second and final flight of the main event gets underway on Saturday at 11 a.m. and will follow the same structure as Friday's flight. The penultimate event on the schedule, a $250 no-limit hold'em turbo event will run alongside Day 1B of the main event. That event gets underway at 4 p.m.
