78 players will return for Day 2 of the PKC Main Event

After completing the four initial qualifying flights of the Poker King Cup’s National Main Event, only 78 players out of 279 entries will be making their way back to the felt for Day 2. With a total prize pool of PHP3,880,000, players will surely be eyeing the first place purse of PHP857,100. However for today, they will be playing past the money stage until there are only 18 players remaining.

Only 78 players out of 279 entries will be making their way back to the felt for Day 2.

Entering the poker arena as the overall chip leader is Day 1b’s top dog Indonesian player Marcel Andhika with 179,900 chips. Coming in second in chips is Day 1a’s leader, Filipino player Johnson Tan with 172,500 chips, and rounding out the top three is another Filipino, Earl Edison Ang with 140,000 chips.

The day will likely be filled with heavy hitting action with many well-known Asian pros in the mix. Players from Team PKC such as Lester Edoc, Jason Lo, and John Tech are amongst them, along with the WPTN Korea champion Xu Yiguang from China, and one of Korea’s decorated players Jeon Seung Soo. There are also a high number of short-stacked players which means they will surely be targeted by the bigger stacks very early in the game.

Day 2 will begin promptly at 1pm. You can read up on all the day one recaps provided in the links below.
