The First Flight is now in the Money

The bubble has just burst in the opening flight, and from the looks of it, it was local regular Massoud Eskandari who knocked out well known pro Chris Demaci on the direct bubble. That means that the 31 remaining players are all in the money, with the top 19 advancing.

Among those still alive in the money are the aforementioned Eskandari, along with Chahn Jung, Brent Hart, and Michael Itaev, amongst others.
