Femme fatale: Chen holds court after Day 2 of WPTDeepStacks Opening Event

Melbourne’s own Yu Chen has put on a powerhouse display of poker to end up bagging more than six million in chips after Day 2 of the WPTDeepStacks Sydney Opening Event.

The former Crown Melbourne croupier was virtually flawless in her performance throughout the course of the day, highlighted by the elimination of Milan Stojkovic two away from the bubble before almost stacking Australian Poker Hall of Famer Gary Benson.

Chen then raked in one of the biggest pots of the night, clashing with Star Gold Coast Champs Main Event final tablist Lei Yang in the lead-up to the final level of play to end up bagging 6,020,000.

In second chip position is Todd Sekli, who ended the day with 3,700,000, while Lei Yang (3,545,000), while Sydney poker stalwarts Michele Bouskila (3,540,000) and John Caridad (2,410,000) round out the top five.
