APL Latest: Main Event Attracts 465 Entries

As was hoped, the final day 1 flight of the Asia Poker League Main Event in Beijing brought in a good crowd of players.

Here is a closer look at the APL Main Event by numbers:

The 5 starting days in numbers

– 178 – Entries for day 1E. Comfortably the largest of all the starting day flights, and enough to ensure that there wasn’t a large overlay. Wang Jing is the day 1E chip leader after finishing the day with 306,000.

465– Final figure for the Main Event field size. 465 entries for an inaugural event in a recently formed project is an excellent achievement. Legal tournaments such as this one will help build player confidence in future live events across mainland China, provided that they are organised in the correct way.

– 2 Ladies – The top 2 spots on the overall chip counts are occupied by 2 ladies. Xu Hong Dan topped day 1D, and the overall field with 385,000. Hot on her heels is Zhang Chen Xu, who accumulated 323,000 during day 1A.

67 –  The total Number of Survivors who will be coming back to contest day 2 of the Main Event.

67 players qualified for Day 2

4 International players to day 2: International players who will be a part of the day 2 field. Local players have been dominant through most of the series, with Team Vietnam’s victory in the team event being a notable exception. The composition of tables at the start of day 2 will reflect a Chinese prevalence here. Of the 4 non-Chinese players who are still standing, Singapore’s Li Hanbin leads the way and is 9th in the chip counts. There are 3 Korean nationals in the chasing pack.
