Welcome back to the live coverage of the Asia Pacific Poker Tour from Cebu in the Philippines. Today will see the Day 1b action of the APPT Cebu Main Event kick into full swing from midday today.
Yesterday saw just 51 players take to the felt in what ended up being a shorter than expected day. That didn't mean the poker was any less tough though as Han Ruo Goh managed to become the Day 1a chip leader. He finished on 84,300 and that's the amount all the players will be chasing today.
We can't be 100% certain, but it is extremely likely that today's number will eclipse the 51-player field from yesterday. If we were the betting kind, our money would be on a field somewhere closer to 100 entrants.
It is expected that Team PokerStars Pro's Celina Lin and Vivian Im will both be at the tables today and looking to make a deep run - especially Im. Readers may remember that Im took down this event in season four, becoming the first and only lady to win an APPT title. Let's see if she can make it back-to-back victories.
Make sure to keep your eyes locked to your screens as the PokerNews Live Reporting Team again brings you all the action from the floor of the Waterfront Hotel and Casino in Cebu. It all begins in just over an hour at 12:15 pm local time.
