ANZPT Queentown Day 2 Recap

ANZPT Queenstown Day 2 RecapThe second day of the ANZPT Queenstown Main Event is now over and it will be Jonathan Bredin who will go into Day 3 with the chip lead.

Jonathan Bredin finished the day with a commanding lead over the other 22 players who made it to the third day of play, with 212,400 chips to his name. Wenjian Qiu finished the day second on the chip ladder. He will start Day 3 with a stack of 158,200 to his name.

With 137,500 chips, Asj Taylor had the third highest stack of the remaining field, just slightly more than Daniel Neilson, who finished the day with 137,300. A total of 11 players – just under half the remaining field – will enter Day 3 with six figure stacks.

A number of notable players were eliminated on Day 2, a sign of the high level of competition as players continue to vie for a final table spot and, ultimately, the NZ$93,600 (around US$83,180) first place prize.

One player knocked out on Day 2 was GuangDong Asia Millions runner-up Jeff Rossiter, who fell victim to David Yan late in the day. The young Australian was one to watch for in this event as he came in a few months removed from his $3 million win in Macau.

He found himself shortstacked for most of the second day, however, which prompted him to move all in with A♠ 10♠ on his last hand of the event. Yan called and had Rossiter dominated with A K. Yan’s hand held up on the J♣ 9 6♣ 4 2 board to win him the hand while knocking Rossiter out of the Main Event.

Yan was himself eliminated from the event just before the end of the second day of play after coming off the wrong end of a showdown to the chip leader. After a series of raises and reraises, Bredin moved all in with Q♣ Q and was called by Yan, who was not to be outdone with A K♠.

The 9 7♣ 9♣ J♠ 5♠ that came on the board won Bredin the hand, which gave his stack a huge boost and ended Yan’s time in the tournament.

Other key players who were eliminated on Day 2 include Bryan Huang, who was the chip leader going into the second day, and last year’s ANZPT Queenstown Main Event winner Dave Allan. Both players were eliminated in the late stages of Day 2.

Bredin will certainly have the advantage going forth, given the size of his stack. But as poker has shown us time and time again, anything can happen in a short period of time, especially at this stage of the game.

Day 3 of the ANZPT Queenstown Main Event is set to take place tomorrow afternoon at the SKYCITY Queenstown Casino in New Zealand.
