Red Dragon (Main Event)

Day 1A Done, On to Day 1B in 9 Hours!

[user163836]

We've got an unassuming chip leader after Day 1A in Jason Coe from the United States. So unassuming that he even more than doubles-up the second-in-chips in Harri Sawicki from Thailand.

Rounding up our top five are Fan Liu from China, Sailesh Verma and Ronald Yu, both from Hong Kong. Watch our interview with the chip leader on the APN Video Blogs to be posted later today.

Curiously, the big guns including Celina Lin, Raymond Wu and J.C. Tran among others did not survive the first day of the PokerStars Macau Poker Cup Red Dragon Event.

Will this pattern hold tomorrow? Will the unheralded and unknown players continue their romp? Or will the pros get their act together and show the rest of the field who's the boss?

Check back later as cards fly in Day 1B of the Red Dragon Event starting at 12:10 pm before Day 2 begins at 7:30 pm! Expected to be in attendance are Nam Le, Quin Do, Neil Arce and Kenichi Takarabe.

See you around.
