APPT Macau Day 2 Roundup: Hanyang Peng chip leader, Juicy Li 2nd in chips

The surviving players converged on the tournament room once more today, eager to accept their fate. Whether they were to be just another fallen name in the day 2 cull, or the constructors chip built dreams edging closer to a momentous final table – all were delighted to still be a part of the APPT Macau Main Event story as day 2 began. The entire field began as 533 players looking for a piece of the HK$11,891,230 (USD$1,531,129) prize pool, but only 219 took their seats today.

With 63 players supposed to be paid, 64  players were still involved at the end of the day. It means that among all the players who will return tomorrow, only one won’t be able to claim at least a HK$47,150 min-cash.

Juicy Li had been the big story of day 1 as she stormed ahead of the field on day 1b to take the overnight chiplead by a comfortable margin. She finished day 2 with the second largest stack (509,500).

China’s Hanyang Peng who bagged 610,000, is the only player who surpassed her. There were several notable players in the chasing pack, and both if them still have a marathon to run before thinking about the pot of gold at the end of this particular rainbow.

Through the course of the day the field thinned, as pro and amateur alike fell. We lost 2015 Asian Player of the Year Alan King Lun Lau and Celina Lin, along with Kitty Kuo, who had started today with a strong chip stack.

There were a few well known players who survived to day 3, with Team PokerStars Lin Chen An taking 99,000 chips through, and Leon Li-Ta Hsu still very much in contention with 134,00. There is still everything to play for as the action unfolds tomorrow.
