APPT Queenstown Snowfest enters Day 2

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Aug 25, 2011 Posted in Aussie Poker News, Tournament News | No Comments »

After three starting days, each attracting roughly 40 players, the APPT Queenstown Snowfest tournament is ready to combine the remaining players for Day 2 of the Main Event. A total of 71 players are still in the hunt for the nearly $100k NZD that will be awarded to the winner of the tournament.

Day 1c saw something happen that I have never seen before in a major tournament; seven players who registered for the tournament failed to turn up, and were simply blinded off! While it’s not an unusual occurrence for one or two players to have a pressing matter that causes them to miss a tournament they pre-registered for, it’s definitely noteworthy when 16% of the field is a no-show!

Here is a look at the Top 10 chip counts amongst the remaining players:

1. Alicia Sale — 91,750

2. Cole Swannack — 86,050

3. Koray Turker — 85,075

4. Jackson Zheng — 80,125

5. Ben Paurini — 77,225

6. Marcel Schreiner — 72,600

7. Matt Yates — 62,100

8. Daniel Laidlaw — 60,075

9. Octavian Voegele — 59,975

10. Charles Caris — 57,700

A total of 15 players will make the money in the tournament, earning anywhere from $6,000 NZD to $94,300 NZD for winning the tournament:

* 1st place: $94,300

* 2nd place: $60,000

* 3rd place: $35,150

* 4th place: $29,145

* 5th place: $24,000

* 6th place: $19,715

* 7th place: $16,290

* 8th place: $12,860

* 9th place: $10,280

* 10th – 12th place: $7,720

* 13th – 15th place: $6,000
