The 13th day of the 2014 World Series of Poker Asia Pacific (WSOP APAC) would play host to Day 2 of the $10,000 buy-in Main Event. There were a combined 324 entrants from the two starting day flights and with registration open until the start of Day 2, that number was expected to grow.
Day 2 began with 182 returning players from the two starting flights, as well as five players that opted to take advantage of late registration. After six 90-minute levels of play, just 70 players remained with Kyle Montgomery and his chip stack of 595,000 leading.

Montgomery vaulted into the chip lead in the last level of the night when he and Timo Pfutzenreuter created an all-in, seven-bet, 500,000-chip pot. Not surprisingly, it was a brutal aces-versus-kings cooler, but fortunately for Montgomery he was on the good end and took down the pot.
Others who thrived on Day 2 were Victor Teng (511,800), Jackie Glazier(444,700), Ivan Zhou (430,000), and Henry Wang (307,100), to round out the top five.
Of course, not everyone was as fortunate. Among the throngs of players to hit the rail were Billy “The Croc” Argyros, Russell Thomas, Joe Hachem, Jeff Lisandro, Phil Hellmuth, Greg Merson, Ismael Bojang, Bruno Kawauti, andGeorge Danzer, who currently leads the WSOP Player of the Year race. Interestingly, the man behind Danzer, Brandon Shack-Harris, is still alive in the Main Event with 221,100, which is good enough for 10th place on the leader board.
Others who will be returning for Day 3 are 2010 WSOP Player of the YearFrank Kassela (267,500); 2014 WSOP Asia-Pacific bracelet winners Alex Antonios (228,000) and Sam Higgs (117,800); European Poker Tour Grand Final runner-up Jack Salter (171,500); Australian sports legend Shane Warne(162,300); former $50,000 Poker Players’ Championship winner Brian Rast(136,600); Day 1a chip leader Tobias Reinkemeier (93,900); and 2010 WSOP champ Jonathan Duhamel, though he is on life support with just 3,000 in chips.
