Day 1A of the first-ever World Poker Tour Amsterdam Main Event (€3,300 buy-in) began with 130 entries and ended with 54 survivors after nine levels of play, and Fredrik Andersson, from Sweden, finished at the top of the chip counts with 228,100.
According to PokerNews, Andersson came out of nowhere to accumulate such a big stack, mainly thanks to him playing very agressive in the last levels of the day. Other top stacks include Noah Boeken (195,200), Muntathar Albadawi (189,700), and Barrie Pietersz (133,100) .
Here are some notables that made it through to Day 2: WPT Champions Club members Yevgeniy Timoshenko (86,600) and Anthony Zinno (47,700), recent WPT Amsterdam High Roller winner Jason Wheeler (92,800) and the runner-up Jack Salter (56,100).
Day 1B starts at 2pm local time and everyone who didn't make it through the first day can give it another shot. We will be back with another update tomorrow morning.
