After a great Day 1A here at the Australia New Zealand Poker Tour Melbourne Main Event it's time for the second flight. A big number of players, 186, showed up for Day 1A. Even though Day 1B is expected to be a little smaller it's still expected to break last year's total number of 311 by a clear margin.
We expect to see plenty of big Australian and international poker stars today. Among other APPT Melbourne winner Sam Razavi is bound to take a shot at back-to-back titles here at the Crown Casino. Tony Hachem and both Team PokerStars Pros Bryan Huang and Angel Guillen are expected to play as well.
Today will consist of eight one-hour levels and no dinner break. Play will finish around 9:00 PM local time, and survivors from today and yesterday will return tomorrow at noon local time.
