APPT Seoul Main Event: Day 2 Sees Daniel Demicki Seize Chiplead

Of the 158 players who entered the APPT Seoul Main Event, 61 Players returned today with their hopes of victory still intact. That number included amateurs, professionals and everything in between, as players took their seats, ready to fight it out for a 1st prize of KRW119,097,600 ($101,173). The tournament, which is hosted at Paradise Walkerhill Casino, would see the field steadily thinned throughout the day, with only 22 left standing by the end of day 2. PokerStars qualifier and Polish national Daniel Demicki bagged up an imposing 292,000 chips, which was good for the chiplead going into the third day.

Fans will have been happy to see some big names making it through to the second day, and for at least part of the day, they had the likes of Celina Lin, Bryan Huang, and Chen An Lin to watch. Sadly though for the PokerStars team pros, all of them hit the rail on day 2.

The two players who topped their respective starting day flights both made it through to the third day. Albert Paik who led at the end of day 1a, had an excellent day, surviving the second day with a 287,000 chip stack that sits close behind the leader. Day 1b leader Tsun Ming Chan also made it through the day unscathed, and carries 150,500 through to the third day.

There are a mix of five different nationalities in the top six chip stacks, with Poland, USA, Australia, Japan and Canada all represented. Japan in fact, have five players in the top ten, although much can still change on day 3.
