The third and final day one flight of the Joe Hachem Deep Stack Series 6 has come to a close, with no less than 272 players taking to the felt for another big day of poker action.
The packed field made it 623 entries over the last few days to create a total prize pool of $311,500 with the top prize sitting at $75,000.
With the repechage format of the event it was 524 unique entries over the three day one flights, meaning a large portion of players who busted on day 1a and 1b decided to fire another bullet to try to create a day two berth.
Raemin Alexander and Andrew Hinrichsen were among those who fired the maximum three shells, with Hinrichsen falling short while Alexander managed to survive.
Day 1c saw a star-studded field take to the felt, including the likes of young-guns Kristian Lunardi, Trung Tran, Andrew Jeffreys and Sam Rotar in combination with 2011 Aussie Millions Main Event Champion David Gorr and ANZPT Adelaide Champion Karl Krautchneider.
Unfortunately for the aforementioned players they would not be part of the 117 players who managed to survive through the day, but instead make way for the likes of Tom Wing, Luke Santo, Billy Jordanou and Octavian Voegele who all managed to scrape through when the dust settled on day 1c.
It was Sean Keeton who would top the chip counts after the final day one flight, accumulating 148,300 in chips. Not far behind Keeton were Sam Georges (140,200), Paul Williams (138,100) and Ricky Gov (115,800). Still in contention with healthy stacks include Michael Spilkin (89,000), Luke McLean (78,500) and Dean McIver (64,700).
The big stacks from day 1c will be chasing the likes of Sean Dunwoodie (182,000) and Shao Lui (185,000) who managed to finish near the top their day one flights.
Of the 231 players who will return to the Crown Poker Room in Melbourne it will be 54 who will make some money, while the rest will go home empty handed. But it’s the top prize everyone will be gunning for, with a juicy $75,000 and the title of champion going to the eventual winner.
Play is set to kick off at 12.30 p.m with PokerNetwork again providing all the live coverage as day two action brings about the exiting conclusion of the Joe Hachem Deep Stack Series 6.
