There were 257 entries on Day 1B of the $1,100 buy-in DeepStacks Edmonton Spring Main Event at Casino Yellowhead on Saturday, and that made for a total field size of 420. The total prize pool is $399,000 (all figures are in CAD). The top 53 players will take home at least $1,740, and the eventual champion will win $81,200, which includes a $3,000 DSPT Championship prize package.

The chip leader of the 56 survivors at the end of play is Greg Pelletier (pictured above) with 444,500. Other big stacks were bagged up by Burt Robinson (307,500), and Colten Yamagishi rounds out the top three with 270,000. All three of these players ended the night playing at the same table.

Two More Hands

The tournament clock has been paused with 59 players remaining, and the field was just informed that they will play two more hands before the end of Day 1B. Stay tuned for chip counts and recap of the day.

Ryan Comely Eliminated by Burt Robinson

Ryan Comely

Level: 15
Blinds: 1,200/2,400 with a 400 ante
Players: 59/257

The board reads [poker card=”8c”] [poker card=”3c”] [poker card=”2d”] [poker card=”Kh”] when Ryan Comely (pictured) gets the last of his chips into the middle UTG+1. Burt Robinson calls to cover him on the hijack so they flip over their cards.

Robinson: [poker card=”Kc”] [poker card=”10c”]
Comely: [poker card=”Ad”] [poker card=”Ks”]

River: [poker card=”10s”]

Robinson hits a 10 on the river to take out Comely and grow his stack to 330,000.

Burt Robinson – 330,000 (137 bb)
Ryan Comely – Eliminated

Greg Pelletier Takes the Chip Lead in a Huge Hand

Level: 15
Blinds: 1,200/2,400 with a 400 ante
Players: 60/257

UTG+1 raises to 5,500 preflop, Greg Pelletier calls from middle position, and Colten Yamagishi reraises to 18,500 on the cutoff. Both opponents call so the three players see a flop dealt [poker card=”10c”] [poker card=”3d”] [poker card=”2d”]. UTG+1 moves all in for 108,000, Pelletier calls, and Yamagishi gets out of the way. The two remaining players then reveal their cards.

Pelletier: [poker card=”Jd”] [poker card=”10d”]
UTG+1: [poker card=”10h”] [poker card=”10s”]

Turn and River: [poker card=”5d”] [poker card=”Qd”]

Pelletier makes a flush to win the hand and eliminate his opponent. Pelletier now holds the chip lead with a huge stack of 465,000.

Greg Pelletier – 465,000 (193 bb)

Thomas Taylor

Level: 14
Blinds: 1,200/2,400 with a 400 ante
Players: 72/257

Thomas Taylor (pictured) opens the pot with a raise from middle position, and the button moves all in. Taylor calls to cover her so they flip over their cards.

Taylor: [poker card=”Ah”] [poker card=”8c”]
Button: [poker card=”Ac”] [poker card=”7c”]

Board: [poker card=”Kh”] [poker card=”Jd”] [poker card=”8h”] [poker card=”8s”] [poker card=”10h”]
