A year after clocking a career-best score with a solid 91stt-place finish in the inaugural WPT World Championship here at Wynn Las Vegas, WPT anchor Lynn Gilmartin again leads the Aussie charge of Day 1B of the 2023 main event.

With 730 players taking their seats on Wednesday – pushing the total number of starters so far to 1,339 – Gilmartin bagged 556,000 after 10 levels of play, enough for the 12th largest Day 1B stack.

It also means she sits second on the Aussie counts behind only Martin Kozlov, who bagged 575,000 on Day 1A.

Also making it through on Wednesday was Sydneysider Malcolm Trayner with 222,000, looking to continue his impressive recent form which included winning three titles in three days at the APL’s recent Ville 600 in Townsville in November.

Leading the Day 1B chip counts is American Peter Neff with 899,000, while other notables to make it through include Andrew Lichtenberger (530,000), Cary Katz (379,000), Jeremy Ausmus (279,000), Erik Seidel (272,000), Kristen Foxen (240,000), Benny Glaser (170,000), Jay Farber (163,000) and Brian Rast (100,000). In total, 265 players bagged from the 730-person starting field with two more day one flights remaining.

Day 1C gets underway at 11am local time.
