65 players returned for Day 2 of the $1,000 buy-in Opening Event, with the action generally fast paced throughout the day. Yang Lei, Martin Ward and Liam Murray were amongst the notables to have been eliminated in the closing stages before Aaron Purdue‘s departure in 10th place started the process for the remaining nine players to bag and tag their chips for tomorrow.
The final table line-up is an all-star cast, featuring Australian Poker Hall of Famer Billy “The Croc” Argyros, Chris Tran, Chris Zenenos and Chin Wang, along with French superstar Anthony Cierco; Canadian grinder Michael Clair returns with a slender chip lead over New Zealand’s Anthony Harach.
As well as the coveted Jostens championship ring, $73,202 in prize money awaits our winner, paying down to $6,386 for our first elimination tomorrow (Sunday), with play to recommence from 11:30am AEST.
