Day 1b Chip Leader Eric Baldwin
Day 1b Chip Leader Eric Baldwin

Day 1b of the Mid-Stakes Poker Tour $1,600 Venetian Main Event ($2 Million GTD) has concluded with Eric "basebaldy" Baldwin bagging today’s chip lead with 645,500 in chips.

The two-time WSOP-bracelet winner is certainly no stranger to poker success and currently leads Day 1a chip leader Osmin "Oddie" Dardon (618,000).

Baldwin got off to a hot start and never looked back, increasing his stack steadily throughout the day, including taking down a four-bet pot with pocket nines. Trailing Baldwin, but still with a monster stack is Michael Foley with 538,000 in chips.

Day 1b more than doubled the amount of entries from Day 1a with 665 by the end of late registration. From those entries, 98 players remained by the day’s end.

Among those who managed to bag into Day 2 include Stephen Song (127,000), Joseph Cheong (164,500), Justin Saliba (301,500), and Lee Markholt (64,000)

Some notables who tried and fell short were Benjamin Moon, Kathy Liebert, Matt Affleck, Maria Konnikova, Tuan Le, and Chris Moorman and Joe Cada — both of whom were eliminated on the last level of the day.

All players who failed to bag today will have one last chance tomorrow during Day 1c — wherein players will be able to enter and re-enter as many times as they'd like until the end of dinner break after level nine.

Be sure to stick with PokerNews for another full day of poker action as the MSPT Venetian $1,600 Main Event ($2M GTD) continues for the third and final Day 1 tomorrow beginning at 11:10 a.m. local time.

Play Wraps up For The Day

• Nivo 15: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

Day 1b has come to an end.

Stay tuned for a recap.

Seven More Hands

• Nivo 15: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

The tournament staff just announced that each table will deal seven more hands until bagging and tagging for the evening.

Moorman Getting Short

• Nivo 15: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

Joe Cada opened to 8,500 from middle position and was called by the player in the cutoff. Chris Moorman then squeezed to 35,000 and action folded back around to the cutoff, who called.

The flop came {j-Clubs}{2-Spades}{10-Spades} and it was checked to Moorman, who bet enough to put his opponent all in for his last 70,000. Moorman's opponent immediately called and hands were revealed.

Moorman: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}
Cutoff: {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}

Moorman had flopped a huge draw, while his opponent held top pair.

The {2-Clubs} turn and {4-Clubs} river bricked out for Moorman, who was left with just about ten big blinds after the hand.

Moorman Taken to Value Town

• Nivo 14: 1,500-3,000, 3,000 ante

Chris Moorman opened to 6,500 from early position and found one caller in the big blind.

The flop came {10-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{9-Hearts} and Moorman bet 5,500 when checked to. His opponent called.

Both players checked on the {8-Diamonds} river, but the player in the big blind bet 8,000 on the {q-Spades} river, sending Moorman into the tank.

Moorman eventually cut out a call and slid it into the middle and his opponent revealed {q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} for two pair. Moorman mucked and his opponent scooped the pot.

Joseph Cheong
Joseph Cheong

Joseph Cheong opened to 7,000 from early position and was three-bet to 21,000 by the player in the lojack. Action folded back around to Cheong, who quickly announced he was all in for about 150,000.

Cheong's opponent mused, but eventually folded and Cheong scooped the pot.
