After going on a tear late into the evening session, Lloyd Locsin has finished Day 1A of the Star Gold Coast Champs Main Event as overall chip leader with a massive 818,000.
Speaking with PokerMedia Australia after the conclusion of the day, Locsin said he had been in the zone today, making good reads and acting on instinct.
Asked if there was any key moment, he recalled a hand earlier in the day where an opponent had tripled barrelled on a board of A-4-5-A-9 and he had made the call on every street with just a five and a two kicker; correctly.
“This was the moment, talking about instinct and good reads,” Locsin said. “Watching him, hearing him breathing heavy, looking stiff … when I called, that’s when I knew I was playing well.”
Asked if he had a game plan for Sunday, he responded that he was going to “keep calm and stay focused, and to make and keep making the right decisions at the right times.”
Other players to have bagged for Day 2 include Michael Brahim, Angel Guillen, Corey Van Jaarsveldt, Aroha Ngata, Janet Wyvil, Rod Meneses, and WPTDeepstacks Gold Coast Main Event Champion Will Davies, whilst it was a tough day at the office for Faraz Ayyaz, Matt Pongrass, Chin Wang, Satul Rayak, and Hasian Hyde.
