Shaun Deeb Leads After Day 1B

Day 1B has concluded at Spielbank Berlin.

This morning, 375 runners attended the Day 1A flight, and they played down to 28 players over the course of 15 levels. Phil Hellmuth and David "ODB" Baker both advanced through the opening flight, while Erik Scheidt finished with the big stack of 129,000 chips. The full list of chip counts from Day 1A is available in the reports section.

Day 1B began at 7:00 p.m. with another 473 players, and that number was reduced to 30 by the time the bags came out in the wee hours of the morning.

Shaun Deeb finished the B flight as the overall chipleader with 212,000, looking to gain more ground in the 2015 POY race. Deeb is followed by Felix Bleiker and Alex Rocha (who also cashed in the Day 1A flight). The full list of chip counts for the Day 1B survivors is available in the reports section.

Days 1C and 1D will begin on Saturday, and they'll follow the same schedule as today's flights.

All players that bag chips during the Day 1 flights will return for the combined Day 2 on Sunday, October 11th.

The tournament director has just announced the final three hands of the night.

It looks like Alex Rocha has made another great leap and is now playing more than 120,000 chips.

36 players are left for the last hands of Flight B.

Watch Out for Shaun Deeb, POY Contenders!

We won't know exactly how many WSOP Player of the Year points Shaun Deeb's guaranteed min-cash will get him, but given that he is just over 350 points back from the current frontrunner, Mike Gorodinsky, and he is sitting on a pile of chips, it is definitely a situation to be monitored heading into the closing levels of Day 1B and the start of Day 2.

This year several POY contenders are in Europe jockeying for points, including Gorodinsky, Deeb, Anthony Zinno, John Racener, Phil Hellmuth (who advanced to Day 2 of this event earlier today), and Stephen Chidwick, who will be vying for his second bracelet of the year tomorrow at the Six-Handed Event 1 final table, which will be livestreamed. Chidwick is over 600 points back from the lead, but could move as high as fifth place with a second victory.

You can keep track of the Player of the Year race, powered by the Global Poker Index, right here.
