Bonaccorso bags the chip lead after Day 1B of Star Gold Coast Main Event

After a frenetic day of action on the felt, Luci Bonaccorso has been confirmed as the Day 1B chip leader in the Star Gold Coast Champs Main Event.

The former Star Gold Coast croupier, who won $21,329 in the $1,100 NLH Event two nights ago, was at the wrong end of a four-way all-in pre-flop scenario earlier in the day, but elected to fire one more bullet and eventually bagged up 588,000 in chips, with Robert Spano, Cam Adams and Tony Seremet not far behind.

Not to be outdone, 2022 Treasury Brisbane Poker Festival Main Event Champion Adrian Sportelli and tablemate Jeison Berdugo capped off the evening session with an epic celebration after the successive eliminations of Mike Maddocks and Ali Zebarjad.

Other feature players to have bagged through from today’s flight include Yita Choong, Ricky Kroesen, Hussein Hassan, Zac Duce, Bert Perry, Anthony Cierco and Josh McSwiney.
