After eight levels of play, Day 1A has finally come to an end with one-third surviving the field of 120 players.
Today’s tournament saw the local poker scene well-represented by the likes of 2009 APT Philippines Champion Neil Arce, Mark Rivera, Wally ‘The Dream’ Sombero, Jojo Tech, Mark Pagsuyuin, George 'BuddhaGeorge' Lim and Vic De Guzman. Although out of whom, we will only see Mark Rivera, George 'BuddhaGeorge' Lim and Mark Pagsuyuin on Day 2.
The surprise for today is the emergence of a silent chip leader – Michael Dario. He quietly built his stack to 87,600. We will find out more about Michael as he leads the remaining 40 players from Day 1A to Day 2 on Sunday for the Resorts World Manila Inaugural Poker Championships.
Play for Day 1B starts tomorrow at 2:00 pm here at the second level of The Resorts World Manila.
