ACOP: Six Aussies among 56 eyeing slice of Main Event pie

After a short opening day to the Asia Championship of Poker Main Event at the Grand Waldo in Macau, players had to put in some hard yards last night with the field slashed from 140 to just 56 on day two.

Andrew Gaw from the Philippines leads the remaining players heading into Friday’s day three action with 329,200 in chips. Day one chip leader Yue Hin Lam (303,900), China’s Xing Zhou (298,000), Japan’s Tsugunari Toma (215,100), Hong Kong’s Edmund Lee (214,600) and Taiwan’s Henry Wang (201,100) are the other players over the 200k-mark.

Also returning to the Grand Waldo convention hall later today are 2010 APPT Macau winner Victorino Torres (45,000), Macau Poker Cup Championship winners Raiden Kan (95,300) and Rui Chen (42,800), and February’s Red Dragon champion Nicky Jin (63,700).

The Australian contingent was decimated on day two with just six remaining – Michael Kanaan is seventh overall (188,500) while Aaron Lim (82,100), Xue Wu (60,500), 2011 WSOPE bracelet winner Andrew Hinrichsen (49,600), Andrew Scott (42,900) and Mike Marvanek (39,300) remain in the hunt for one of 22 spots in the money.
