The Star Gold Coast Champs is off to a cracking start, with 156 entries taken in for the first flight of the $750 buy-in Opening Event and generating a current prize pool worth $105,300.
From the 26 survivors to have bagged up at the end of Day 1A, French import Antoine Follet has emerged as chip leader after securing a massive double-up with one of the last hands of the day with pocket kings.
Brenton Buttigieg, Nathan Harvey, Anthony Cierco and Mark Ericksen round out the top five, however Ricky Kroesen, Mike Maddocks, Mina Gerges and Jaisan Patel were amongst those to have hit the rail.
