WSOP APAC Main Event Day 2: Winfred Yu Leads; Negreanu 4th; Ivey Busts
The official numbers are in for the AUD$10,000 buy-in World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific Main Event at Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia. After registration closed midway through Day 2, 405 entrants had generated a prize pool worth AUD$3,847,500. The top 40 spots will be paid, and the eventual winner will take home AUD$1,038,825 along with the first WSOP Main Event bracelet awarded on Australian soil.
Winfred Yu will enter Day 3 with the best chance of collecting that hardware. Yu, a regular in high-roller events around the Asia-Pacific region, ended Day 2 as the chip leader after bagging 432,700 to close out the day. He’ll be followed by George Tsatsis (365,800), Yasar Guedin (350,300) and Daniel Negreanu (338,100), who had another productive day after ending Day 1 as the overall leader.

Personally I hope that Daniel Negreanu goes all the way to the final table and wins the entire event. This event is certainly still up for grabs. Regardless of how it finishes now we can all smile The fact that Phil ivey has busted out this event already means Daniels chances has improved.
