Peter Chan Tops Day 1b Field!

• Level 8: 500-1,000, 100 ante
Day 1b Chip Leader, Peter Chan
Day 1b Chip Leader, Peter Chan

The final Day 1 flight has come to a close at the 2014 PokerStars.net APPT Macau Main Event and it was an exciting day of play which did not disappoint. There were an impressive 282 players who turned out for seven and a half levels of play today and by the end, 119 survived with Peter Chan bagging up the most chips with 141,000.

Close behind him and also reaching the six-figure club include Shivan Abdine (124,800) and Haifeng Xue (121,000) who all battled for the lead throughout the final stages of play.

The combined Day 1 flights made for a presentable 494-player field. Of those players, there will be 206 players returning for Day 2 and will be vying for their share of the HKD$11,021,140 prize pool.

Some well-known players to take their seats throughout the day included recent APPT Seoul champion Chane Kampanatsanyakorn, 2013 WSOS ACOP gold bracelet winner Aaron Lim and reigning APPT Macau champion Alexandre Chieng. Unfortunately for these three, their day would be cut short.

Returning tomorrow will be a collection of notables including PokerStars Team Pros Raymond Wu (28,600) and Celina Lin (25,900), Michael Kanaan (54,000), Ivan Zalac (49,700), Darian Tan (45,700), Sparrow Cheung (44,900), Nick Wong (42,000), Raiden Kan (32,700), and J.J. Liu (10,200) who were all able to bag up various amounts of chips.

Day 2 is set to kick off at 3:00 p.m. local time on Friday as PokerNews will again be on the floor in the magnificent City of Dreams Macau!

4 More Hands

• Level 8: 500-1,000, 100 ante

With 15 minutes left on the clock, the tournament dealer announced there would be four more hands and then the bagging will begin.

Liu Doubles Again

• Level 8: 500-1,000, 100 ante
J.J. Liu
J.J. Liu

We've been keeping our eye on J.J. Liu knowing she is short-stacked and the end of day near. And sure enough just as action folded to her in late position, she moved her remaining chips into the middle. It almost appeared as if it would fold around but the player in the big blind made the call.

Big Blind: {7-Clubs}{4-Spades}
J.J. Liu: {5-Spades}{5-Clubs}

Liu was happy to see the {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}{5-Hearts} flop and the {10-Diamonds} turn and {q-Diamonds} river gave her yet another double up. She is stil short but her stack is moving in the right direction.

Liu Doubles; Still Extremely Short

• Level 7: 400-800, 100 ante

J.J. Liu moved all in and had two callers. The flop came {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{6-Spades}. The player in early position checked and the other player bet 3,000 forcing the fold. The hands were than tabled.

Liu: {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}
Opponent: {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

The early position player appeared upset and seeing the hand of his opponent, who asked if he had him beat. The early position player nodded and the opponent just shrugged his shoulders.

The {8-Spades} turn and {5-Clubs} river completed the board and gave Liu the double up. At just 6,000, she will need to keep making some moves.

Andrew Scott was nursing a short-stack for a long time.

He finally pushed all in with pocket deuces and was called by three players.

Unfortunately for Scott, the odds were not in his favour and he was unable to improve.
