Welcome to Day 2 of the Main Event!
Today the 85 combined starting day survivors return to APT Korea Seoul 2018 at Paradise Casino in Grand Walkerhill for another eight rounds of play. So far the featured tournament has drawn 148 entries. For those wanting to get in the action, there is still time. Registration stays open for one hour in Day 2 and closes at the start of Level 10.
Main Event action gets underway at 1pm. The game resumes at Level 9 with blinds at 600-1200 ante 200. Blinds gradually increase every 60 minutes. Average stack is currently at 87,058. For late-entry players, buy-in is KRW 1,100,000; this gives you a 50,000 starting stack which is roughly around 40 bbs.
In pole position today is APT regular Stephen Nathan who bagged up his burly stack of 320,800 at Day 1A. Coming in second-rank is Day 1B chip leader, Ken Okada with 256,200. You can view the chip counts and seat draws via the link below or head to the APT Facebook page.
