The second flight of the $25,000,000 guaranteed Event #77: $5,000 No Limit Hold'em Main Event saw 25 out of a field of 114 players advance after 15 levels of play. They'll join the 99 players that advanced from Day 1A on Sunday, August 30, for Day 2 of this event.

China's Xuming "scplayer" Qi claimed the bragging rights by bagging the biggest stack of the night (620,372). Qi was followed by high roller Dan Smith, who ended the night with 421,653 in chips. Smith, one of poker's most-decorated players with over $36M in lifetime winnings according to The Hendon Mob, is still looking to add a bracelet win onto his long list of accomplishments.

Other notables that advanced include Stefan Burakov (339,041), Simon Higgins (304,491), Laurynas Levinskas (220,587), Sung Joo "ArtePokerTV" Hyun (141,789), Sergi Reixach (132,074) and Steven van Zadelhoff (93,853).

Players such as Kristen Bicknell, Yuri Dzivielevski, Brian Rast, Mikita Badziakouski, Luc Greenwood, Christopher Kruk, Philipp Gruissem, and Daniel Negreanu ran out of chips and will have to retry in a future flight.

The next Main Event flight is Day 1C on Tuesday, August 18 at 7 p.m. UTC.
