The event, which had a buy-in of KRW2,000,000, had a rocky start due to weather conditions as well as numerous events happening around Asia.  But in the end, it had accumulated a total participation of 152 entries which was enough to reach the guaranteed prize pool of KRW300,000,000.

Of the notable players, left on the field are PKC Team Member Ian Brion, Russell Thomas, who has a total live earning of more than US$3 million, XiQiang Chen, who recently placed 2nd in the CPG China Championships and Tanaka Masatoshi, a familiar face both in the US and Asian circuits.  Combined Day1 chip leader Hiroyuki Noda is entering Day 3 with the 3rd largest in chips while compatriot Abe Takahiro from Japan takes the lead with 441,500 chips.
