Alex Markopoulos has capitalised on his good form in Adelaide, finishing as the overall chip leader after yesterday’s Main Event Day 1 double-header.

The newly-minted Super High Roller Champion found a late rush after firing multiple bullets in the Day 1C Turbo flight to end the session with 437,000, overtaking Pierce Hynes who topped the counts after the completion of Day 1B with 364,500.

David Sun, who finished sixth in the Super High Roller, returns in third chip position, with Milan Mehta (339,000) and Day 1A chip leader Truc La (329,000) rounding out the top five. Other notables who are amongst the 69 players returning today include Andrew Michael, Shane Baxter, Adam Cusenza, Jerry Zhang, Amin Chehade, and Gavin Best.

Stacked Poker Championship Main Event winners Joe Sandaev and Michael Haddad are also still in contention, along with Australian Poker Hall of Famers Billy ‘The Croc’ Argyros, Gary Benson and Joe Hachem.
