Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier and award winning rapper MC HotDog (check out his poker song POKER STAR) and several other poker pros and celebreties are currently in South Korea for the 2015 Asia-Pacific Poker Tour Seoul.
The Main Event, the highlight of the event, kicked off two days ago and attracted 241 entries over two starting days, but, unfortunately, neither Grospellier or MC HotDog were among the 89 players who made it through to Day 2, which kicks off at 12:00 PM local time.
The remaining field of poker players will be lead into Day 2 by Takahiro Nakai, from Japan, with 186,700 in chips. Besides Nakai, another 6 Japanese poker players are in the top 10 of the chip counts.
The plan for Day 2 is to play down to a final table, and the last 27 players will receive a chunk of the 645 million (approx. 589,200 USD) prize pool. We will be back with a final table recap on Monday morning.
