Day 1c chip leader, Sang Yong Lee

Well folks, that’s it for the Day 1 flights here at the Asia Pacific Poker Tour in Cebu. Another exciting day on the felt saw Sang Yong Lee finish up as the Day 1c chip leader.

It all started with 119 players taking to the felt. This number, added with Day 1a’s 51 and Day 1b’s 76, made for an overall field of 246 players , which surpassed last season’s APPT Cebu 236-player field.

Some of the players who started the day but won’t be returning to the felt tomorrow include Gordon Huntly, Oliver Speidel, Steve Yea, Oliver Speidel, Heath Herring, Terrence Chan and Team PokerStars Pro, Bryan Huang.

Managing to do far better than the above players were the likes of Kuawei Zhong and Kenneth Leoung as they will all join Lee in the top few counts going into Day 2 action on Saturday afternoon. It will be Day 1b's Antonio Martins who starts Day 2 as the overall chip leader.

Another few players who will return on Day 2 alive and well are Sangeeth Mohan, David Steicke and Vincent Rubianes fresh off his runner-up finish at the recent APPT Seoul.

All in all it was 59 players who survived Day 1c and it will be 128 players who will take to the tables of the Waterfront Hotel and Casino for Day 2 action. We will have full end-of-day chip counts and an official Day 2 seating draw as soon as it is made available.
