From the 160 players that reached Day 2 of the Asian Poker Tour (APT) HKD $25,000 buy-in Main Event, just 39 remain after a carnage-filled day at the felt. China’s Zhou Yue Qing sits clear out in front with 301,700 in chips and is followed by two Taiwanese players in the form of Yi Po Lee on 254,600 and Carlos Chang on 235,100.
Many of the field’s notable players failed in their bid to become the next APT champion. Heading to the rail on Day 2 were Nam Le, Team PokerStars Pro Celina Lin, Lester Edoc, Team Bodog Pro Jay Tan, Gordon Huntly, Andrew Gaw, Jojo Tech, Bjoern Weisler, Marc Rivera, Linh Tran and Hirotoshi Nakabo.
Tournament Director Lloyd Fontillas commented, “Day 2 of APT Macau’s Main Event was about short stacks becoming leaders and the leaders getting felted.”
Those still in the running include Kenny Wong (104,500), Oliver Speidel (99,900), Martin Nilsson (94,900), Tetsuya Tsuchikawa (87,300), Kai Paulsen (72,900), Joe Hachem (60,900), Winfred Yu (57,600), Richard Zhu (50,800) and Samad Razavi (34,500).
