South Australian young gun Gary Lin has maintained the overall chip lead after another impressive showing throughout Day 2 of the WPT Prime Gold Coast Main Event.

Having finished Day 1B with more than a million in chips, Lin went coast-to-coast in yesterday’s 12-hour marathon, bagging up almost 6.8 million in chips after eliminating Travis Endersby in the closing stages.

It was also a great day out for Andreas Vasiliou, who finished in second chip position; the WPT League Sydney Milestone Satellite Qualifier found a rush after the dinner break, tangling with Tim O’Shea in a big pot before eventually sending him to the rail.

Amongst the remaining 16 players back in action for Day 3 include Angel Guillen and Anita Savage, who are now both on the verge of a second trophy for the series, along with 2022 WPT Montreal Online Main Event Champion Jack Hardcastle.
