After eight levels of play, The Poker King Club’s Asian Poker King Tournament Day 1A has finally come to an end with 51 surviving the field of 128 players.
Today’s tournament saw the world-wide poker scene well-represented by the likes of Johnny “The Orient Express” Chan, Jeon Seung Soo, Norbert Koh and Ricky Foo who we’ll be seeing in Day 2. Unfortunately, we will not be seeing Winfred Yu, Tommy Le, Gordon Huntly, Charles Chua, Chris Chau, Steve Yea or Mark Pagsuyuin.
The story for Day 1A is Seung Duk Yang who built his stack from 10,000 to 100,000 in chips. He will lead Day 1A’s remaining players into Day 2 on Sunday, April 25.
According to organizers, we may see the prize pool break the HK$ 2,000,000 mark, doubling the HK$ 1,000,000 original guarantee, with a possible 150-player field coming in for Day 1B.
In addition, the last HK$ 550 Super Satellite with re-buys and add ons, attracted 52 players which produced a further eight players for the HK$ 7,500 + HK$ 500 Main Event.
The Asian Poker King Tournament promises more action for tomorrow’s Day 1B of the main event and the Sun City Group High Roller Event (HK$ 100,000 + HK$ 1,000) here at the Level 8 Ballroom of the StarWorld Hotel and Casino.
