Little One for One Drop

The first of three flights attracted 490 entries with 143 making it through the day. Mukul Pahuja is the chip leader from the flight with notables such as Daniel Negreanu, Donnie Phan and Ryan Depaulo making it to Day 2. The second flight gets underway at 3 PM PT on Tuesday.
