Day 1b of the World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific AU$10,000 Main Event has come to a close with 117 players still alive.

The day started with 195 hopefuls taking a seat throughout the day to bring the combined field size to 324 with registration open until the start of play on Day 2. It is important to note that the structure sheet for this event has a misprint on it stating registration will be open through eight levels, but that is not correct, so please be aware that it will close at the start of Day 2.

With those advancing joining the 70 survivors from Day 1a, there will be a combined 187 players moving forward in this prestigious event. Throughout the day, local satellite winners, online grinders, seasoned veterans, and international stars all took a chance, but unfortunately for the likes of Rory Young, Vanessa Rousso, Antonio Esfandiari, Mike Watson, Bruno Politano, Dan Heimiller, and Daniel Negreanu, they all found themselves on the rail.

Sydney's Tam Truong would claim the Day 1b chip lead with an impressive 155,875 in chips, but the overall chip lead would still belong to Day 1a's Tobias Reinkemeier and his 171,925-chip stack. Sitting behind Truong from the second starting flight are Kahle Burns (152,050), Michael O'Grady (148,475), and Victor Teng (140,325).

Brian Rast, Frank Kassela, Jonathan Duhamel, Ismael Bojang, Greg Merson, Ami Barer, Byron Kaverman, and Eddy Sabat still wave the flag for the international stars, while WSOP Player of the Year leader George Danzer and his direct competition Brandon Shack-Harris also still remain.

Day 2 is set to begin at 12:30 p.m. local time with all the live updates being provided by the PokerNews Live Reporting team. Make sure to join us here on PokerNews tomorrow as we continue writing the path of the 2014 WSOP Asia-Pacific Main Event champion.
