(pokernews.com)- Matt Hauge got hot late on Day 1b of Mid-States Poker Tour Potawatomi in Milwaukee to finish with 320,500, enough to lead a pack of 38 survivors by a narrow margin over Rick Syverud (312,000).
The second of two flights drew a total of 216 entries, pushing the total to 462. That created a prize pool of $462,000, and the latest MSPT champ will claim $114,117 when he or she conquers a Day 2 field of 80 players who’ll return on Sunday.

Hauge gambled it up and came out ahead in a big race during Level 14 (1,200/2,400/400), the final level of the night. He opened for a raise in middle position and saw Igor Hot make it 16,200 to go from the small blind. Hauge shipped all in, enough to put Hot at risk for about 100,000, and the latter called off.
