Bryan Huang Continues Love for Queenstown After Huge Day 1c
Posted 8 days 10 hours ago by Josh Bell
The third and final Day 1 flight of the ANZPT Queenstown Main Event has come to a close! There were a huge amount of eliminations today as a field of 47 entries has been reduced to just 18. Leading the way following Day 1c, and becoming the overall chip leader with 99,425 chips is none other than Team PokerStars Pro Bryan Huang.
When Day 1c began there was going to need to be a massive field to reach the heights of last year’s 149-players field. It would end up being the biggest Day 1 flight yet with 47 entrants, which brought the total field size to 126. That means that a NZ$340,200 prize pool has been created, NZ$93,600 of which has been reserved for the eventual champion.
Throughout much of the day it was Tim Woods who held a chip lead over the field, but all of his chips would end up in Huang’s stack. Amazingly, Huang has already made two previous ANZPT Queenstown Main Event final tables (in 2010 and 2012) and will be looking to make it a third this year.
Some of those who will be joining Huang at the felt for tomorrow’s Day 2, albeit with not nearly as many chips, include Alex Lynskey, 2012 ANZPT Auckland champion Geoff Smith and the reigning ANZPT Queenstown champion Dave Allan . Brad Bower, Tristain Bain, Iori Yogo and PokerStars Team Online Roy Bhasin were a few of those from Day 1c who will not be at the tables for Day 2 action.
Be sure to check out all the end-of-day chip counts in the live reporting blog below, along with a full Day 2 table draw. Remember that while the schedule stated there would be two Day 2 flights played tomorrow, that has now been changed and there will only be one Day 2 flight, beginning at 2.00pm local time. That means a combined 66 survivors from all the three Day 1 flights will partake in Day 2 tomorrow.
