STAR POKER: Mason leads ANZPT Sydney Main Event field into day 2

A total of 175 players will return to Star Poker today for day two of the ANZPT Sydney Main Event with the UK’s Ashley Mason (pictured) holding a comfortable chip lead.

A huge line-up of 254 players piled into The Star yesterday for day 1B, taking the total field to 460 and generating a prizepool of $920,000. The winner will take home $226,340.

Just like Thursday night’s opening flight, day 1B featured a who’s who of the Australian poker community including Brendon Rubie, Jonathan Karamalikis, Leo Boxell, David Gorr, Aaron Benton, Jeff Rossiter, Haibo Chu, Tony Hachem, Andrew Hinrichsen, Jarred Graham, Dave Allen, Dale Marsland and Tom Grigg.

Most would be KOed although there were some notable survivors, including Rubie who boasts one of the bigger stacks in the room on 117,700 while Dale Marsland finished in second place for the day (third overall) on 172,200.

However they all lag in the wake of a runaway Ashley Mason who stacks up a mammoth 238,500 – well clear of day 1A chip leader Gary Benson’s 193,000.

We’ll be back at The Star tomorrow from 12.30pm in an attempt to reach the final table. Whether that’s achievable, time will tell, but we do know that we’re in for another very long day! Follow our reporting throughout the day with PMA’s Ben Blaschke and Chris Murphy live from The Star.
