Fink and Rogowski Battle for the Top Spot as 30 Players Advance

Created (3/18/2023 2:13:48 AM by Anthony Thompson)


Almost a full day of action was played to its conclusion at the 2023 Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) Riverside $1,110 Main Event.

The second of three flights drew 258 entries to bring the two-day total thus far to 358 and with that number, the $300K GTD has already been surpassed with one flight remaining.

Of those 258 entries, only 30 players remained when chips went into bags with Mark Fink (413,00) edging out Andy Rogowski (404,000) for the top stack.

Rounding out the top five stacks of the day were Michael Berk (374,00), Austin Pasker (374,00), and Quang Pham (370,00).

Much like Day 1a, the final level of the night saw an onslaught of casualties, with players such as Marquez Davis and Elizabeth Ethridge among those to be eliminated before play concluded for the night with chips flying all across the four remaining tables in the final level of play that led to a lot of players riding roller coasters with their stack sizes before becoming official for the evening.

Several other familiar players will also be joining the aforementioned five. MSPT Champ Steve Federspiel (322,000), and MSPT Hall of Famers Josh Reichard (276,000), & Rob Wazwaz (171,00) are just a few more of the players to add their names to the Day 2 roster along with the 12 to have already advanced from Day 1A.

The final starting flight will get underway tomorrow at 3.00 p.m. and will be the last chance for players to punch their ticket into Sunday's Day 2.

Late registration and re-entries will remain open through Level 12 (approximately 11:40 p.m.)

Make sure to tune in to see who makes it through to Day 2.
