The unassuming Queensland crusher, most famous for his breakout performance in last year’s APL Million Centurion, finished the second and final flight with 543,000 in chips.
Not far behind is Zheming Zhu, who bagged up 468,000, while Meerwais Hussaini (381,000), Kenny Wang (372,000) and Wayne Clinch (370,000) completed the top five.
There were plenty of notables also inside the top 10, including Charles Tsai and Adam Thaggard, who featured prominently throughout the course of the day, along with reigning Star Gold Coast Champs Main Event winner Jennifer Cassell, Luke ‘Psyduck’ McCredie and Aroha Ngata.
