WSOP APAC: Apr 7; Saout leads Accumulator field into day 2, PLO starts today

WSOP APAC daily wrap – April 7

The prizepool for the first ever WSOP APAC event has cracked the $1 million mark after the completion of the three day one flights in the $1100 No Limit Hold’em Accumulator at Crown Melbourne.

The final numbers showed that the event drew a total of number of 580 players who generated 1085 buy-ins. Day 1C proved to be the largest of the flights, with 419 players packing the Crown Poker room and 70 surviving the eight one-hour levels.

It was also the day that players from pub and club organisations including the 888PL/APL, Southern Cross Poker and Aussie Hold’em Poker arrived to chase their poker dreams.

Tournament officials elected to split the difference between the number of players and number of buy-ins, meaning the top 90 players will be paid a minimum $2452 with the winner assured $211,575 and the first WSOP APAC gold bracelet.

Having bagged 59,875 in chips on day 1B, former November Niner Antoine Saout improved his total stack to 105,375 on day 1C, leaving him with the only chip tally in six figures.

Dan Kelly (82,050) and Dylan Honeyman (68,100) complete the top three having survived two of the three flights, while Day 1C chip leader Nick Morales takes 57,275 into day two.

Some of the big names back today include Jonathan Duhamel, Barry Greenstein, Jesse Sylvia, Phil Hellmuth, Michael Watson, Eugene Katchalov and Jake Balsiger while the Aussie charge features Tristan Bain, Martin Kozlov, Hai Bo Chu, Jackie Glazier, Jonathon Karamalikis, Andrew Scarf, Andrew Hinrichsen, Tony Kambouroglou, Aaron Benton and Graeme Putt.
