WSOP APAC: Apr 12; Field tops 350 as Negreanu tops Main Event chip count

WSOP APAC daily wrap – April 12

The inaugural WSOP APAC Main Event kicked-off at Crown Poker last night with more than 300 players taking to the felt for the $10,000 No Limit Hold’em Championship event.

Exact numbers have not been decided yet as registration remains open until the end of day two. However, we can confirm that 262 players bagged chips at the end of day one, and there are a handful of players that have yet to take their seats.

The official opening featured Joe Hachem and Shane Warne while reigning WSOP champion Greg Merson was presented with a Collingwood guernsey by Magpie player Heath Shaw.

Having run close to the gold in the $2200 Mixed Event, Daniel Negreanu (pictured, with thanks to Crown Poker) made a statement of intent to lead the field after day one on 136,050. Close behind the Canadian were 2012 Star Poker Summer Series Main Event winner Joel Feldman (132,975) and Ben Willinofsky (127,875) while Phil Ivey lies ominously poised just outside the top five on 123,300.

The list of casualties included James Obst, Shane Warne, Antoine Saout, Grant Levy, Aaron Benton, Andrew Hinrichsen and Jesse Sylvia with a surprising number of players hitting the rail with just five 90-minute levels scheduled last night.

Play re-commences at 2pm today with six levels of 90 minutes scheduled:

Level 6: 250/500 (ante 50)
Level 7: 300/600 (ante 75)
Level 8: 400/800 (ante 100)
Level 9: 500/1000 (ante 100)
Level 10: 600/1200 (ante 200)
Level 11: 800/1600 (ante 200)
