STAR POKER: Edgtton has the edge heading into Opening Event day two

The Star Poker Summer Series is off to a massive start with a field of 583 players for the $330 buy-in Opening Event after the three opening flights in recent days. The winner will take home $43,000 while the top 57 players will be paid.

Leading the field into day two is famed bridge champion Nabil Edgtton, who holds 267,800 and a big lead over his nearest rival Alex “AJ” Antonios (195,100). Antonios led for much of the session but slipped back to the field in the latter stages of the day.

Other notables among the 96 players returning to the felt today include Jason Wicks (135,500), Antonis “Toothpick Tony” Kambouroglou (106,900), Star Poker ambassador Aaron Benton (102,400), Jimmy Ghobrial (87,700), Sam Khouiss (55,500), Todor Kondevski (47,600), Chad Awerbuch (25,000) and Graeme Putt (14,600).

Some of the big names who failed to negotiate their way through any of the three flights included Star Poker ambassador Grant Levy, Eric Assadourian, David Borg, Barry Forrester and Andrew Capelin. Play resumes at 12.30pm today and will continue until the final table of nine players is decided.
