Some ID Mr. Nelson?

[user67765]
All the players have been asked to produce photo identification so that the dealers can ID them before they take their assigned seats.

It's good to see the dealers doing their job, as Lee Nelson was denied his seat as he didn't have any ID with him. Despite Nelson's photo appearing on many of the advertising banners in the casino, Tournament Director Danny McDonagh was called over and gave the OK to the dealer so that the PokerStars pro would be allowed to take his seat!

Welcome To Day 2

[user67765]
208 survivors return to the felt today for Day 2 of the 2008 APPT Macau Main Event. A record-breaking field of 538 had swelled the prize pool to in excess of US$1.6million, making this the largest tournament in Asia, both in terms of prize pool and number of entrants.

Many big name professionals are still in the hunt for the title, including Chad Brown, Lee Nelson, Emad Tahtouh, John Juanda, Men Nguyen, Terrence Chan, Mansour Matloubi, Johnny Chan, Bertrand Grospellier, Mike McDonald and Joe Hachem.

They will all be chasing Andre Wagner who enters Day 2 with the chip lead with 109,700 in chips.

The action kicks off at 1:30 p.m. local time which is a little over an hour from now, so stay tuned to PokerNews.com for our live coverage from the tournament floor of the Grand Waldo Hotel and Casino!
