MPCC Main Event Day 1b: Yanqin Huang Narrowly In Front

Posted at 08:15 2012-09-14 by Matthew Pitt

Day 1b of the PokerStars Macau Poker Cup Championship (MPCC) has ended and it was yet another day of high class, high octane poker. A total of 181 players started and just 83 managed to navigate through to Day 2.

The chip leader from Day 1b was Yanqin Huang and he ended the day with 112,925; just shy of the 119,175 that Hoi Ting “Edmund” Lee finished with on Day 1a. Huang may have the bragging rights of being the man with the fullest chip bag but those rights could have gone to any one of six players.

Sebastian Benz finished with 112,625 chips, just 300 behind Huang whilst Lin Zhu (110,775), Hyung Sun “Sunny” Jung (107,850), Kenneth Wong (106,950), Xijie Sun (96,225) and Satrya Teja (96,025) were all in with a shout of claiming the chip lead for themselves but fell just short when the curtain finally came down on the day's proceedings.

Other notable players who we will see again on Day 2 include a pair of Team PokerStars Pros in the shape of Raymond Wu (72,300) and Bryan Huang (59,050)

The survivors from the two starting flights will combine for the first time on Friday at 15:10 (GMT+8), all 123 of them, in the Grand Waldo Entertainment Complex and by the time play comes to an end once again, we fully expect the money bubble to have burst.
