Day 1A of the Treasury Brisbane Poker Festival Main Event is complete, and it is none other than Alex Lynskey leading the way. Lynskey is certainly no stranger to success: best known for reaching the final table of the 2018 World Series of Poker Main Event, his huge list of achievements also includes victory in the 2018 WSOP Circuit Sydney Main Event and most recently in the Star Poker Gold Coast Summer Series Main Event in December.
Looking to score a stunning Queensland double, Lynskey bagged 570,000 at Treasury on Friday although he is very closely followed by Alex Vidler, who bagged 563,000 – just one big blind less. Vidler has no recorded results on The Hendon Mob and could be well on his way to his first big score.
Other survivors of the day include Con Boucas, Bert Perry, Liam Murray, Robert Damelian and Ehsan Amiri, whilst it wasn’t a good session for Ricky Kroesen, Mike Maddocks, Hassan Hussein, Mina Gerges or Jen Cassell.
Day 1B commences at 11.30am tomorrow and PokerMedia Australia will again be at Treasury Brisbane from go to woe to bring you all the action!
