So my unofficial chip leader declaration last night I am pleased to confirm was/is correct – albeit out by 25 chips. Mario leads up into Day 2 (so far) with a touch under 111,000 in chips.
A few familiar names amongst the leaders, with second place held by Phamban with just under 75,000 – Tetsuya, winner of event 1 opening event is fourth with 68,525, Danny is sitting fifth with 68,400. I see Iori (winner of event 2 Pot Limit Omaha) scraped through with just over 14,000 as did another Japanese player, Tanaka with around the same stack.
Aussie Aussie Aussie – not because i want you to chant the standard “Oi Oi Oi” – I’m not a fan and i don’t condone it in public or anywhere for that matter. There are however three Aussies that made it through to Day 2:
Maddog Shanahan – 23,900
Anthony Hope – 20,950
Lisa ‘wife of Shanahan’ – 17,725
Let’s see how they progress tomorrow
