The 2014 World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific continued Tuesday with Day 2 action from the AU$10,000 Main Event, a tournament that attracted 329 players and created a prize pool of AU$3.125 million. The money will be distributed to the top 36 players with the winner taking home AU$850,136.

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 after the board ran out {7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{3-Spades}{9-Hearts}{8-Spades}.

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.

Glazier steadily increased her stack throughout the day by winning crucial pots holding the best hand. For instance, in Level 10 (600/1,200/200) an under-the-gun player raised to 2,400 and Glazier pushed back with a three-bet to 5,100 from the hijack. Action folded back to the initial raiser and he opted for an all-in four-bet to right around 42,000. Glazier snap-called, and for justified reason, as she had the {a-Clubs}{a-Spades} to her opponent's {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}.

Glazier woke up with the goods, but her opponent did receive a little help on the {4-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} flop. The {10-Diamonds} turn made things very interesting as Glazier needed to dodge diamonds in addition to a king. The dealer burned one last time and put out the {2-Clubs}. Glazier breathed a big sigh of relief as her opponent commented that had the hand played out differently they'd likely have gotten it in on the flop anyway.

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, and George 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, meaning the race is still very much alive.

Others who will be returning for Day 3 are 2010 WSOP Player of the Year Frank 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 Player’s champ 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.

Day 3 will kick off at 12:30 p.m. local time, and the field will play six more 90-minute levels. During that time, they’ll reach the money and play their way toward the final table. The PokerNews Live Reporting team will be on hand to bring you all the action and eliminations from the floor of Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia, so stay tuned for much more excitement from this event.

Duhamel Crippled in Last Hand

[user38873] • Nível 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

The entire action escaped us but Jonathan Duhamel had flopped a set of fives and his opponent with pocket jacks spiked a jack on the river to leave the Canadian with next to no chips.

Shack-Harris Doubles Late to 200K

Brandon Shack-Harris' hopes for World Series of Poker Player of the Year just got a nice push in the right direction thanks to a very late double up here on Day 2. Shack-Harris is currently 116.8 points behind George Danzer in the race, but Danzer was eliminated earlier today, and there are 225 points up top in this one.

On this hand, Shack-Harris had opened on the button before Wai Tung Lo reraised to 12,500 from the big blind. Shack-Harris reraised to 27,000 with a little over 80,000 behind, and then Lo moved all in. Lo had Shack-Harris covered, and the American went into the tank for a minute or two. Eventually, Shack-Harris made the call with the {9-Spades}{9-Clubs} and was flipped for his tournament life against the {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} for Lo.

The flop delivered great news for Shack-Harris when the {Q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{7-Spades} fell to improve him to a set of nines. It'd now be a bit harder for Lo to win the pot and bust Shack-Harris, and then the dealer officially ended the sweat on the {7-Clubs} turn. The river was the {Q-Spades} to finish off Shack-Harris with a full house and give him the double up.

Three More Hands

[user153638] • Nível 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

The tournament staff just announced the remaining players will play three more hands before bagging and tagging for the night. We're headed out to capture any last-minute action and compile a list of chip counts. Stay tuned for those as well as a full recap of the Day 2 action.

Balkin’s Shove Pays Off

• Nível 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

The action folded around to David Balkin on the button who moved all in for his last 29,800. Minh Nguyen was in the small blind and moved all in for around 90,000 forcing a fold from Dylan Kehoe in the big blind.

Balkin: {j-Hearts}{5-Hearts}
Nguyen: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}

Balkin was in bad shape until the dealer spread out the {6-Spades}{4-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{2-Spades}{3-Clubs} board. He had rivered a straight to snatch defeat from Nguyen.

Xuan Finds Aces

[user80015] • Nível 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Xuan Liu found herself all in for her last 49,300 against John Moffitt.

Liu: {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}
Moffitt: {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}

The board ran out {K-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} and Liu doubled to over 100,000 as Moffitt was left crippled with 7,200 in chips.

Kurita Gets Called

• Nível 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

The action started with Yu Kurita raising to 5,000 from under the gun and finding a call from Kyle Cheong in the cut off.

The flop came down {4-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} and Kurita threw out a continuation bet of 5,000. Cheong called as the {6-Diamonds} fell on the turn. Kurita didn’t slow down, betting out another 7,500 in chips. Cheong paused for a second before making the call as the {k-Diamonds} completed the board.

Kurita quickly bet out 14,500 which sent Cheong into a deep tank. He agonised over his decision for several minutes before finally making the call.

Kurita then happily turned over her {a-Spades}{k-Spades} which was enough to take down the pot as Cheong tossed his cards into the muck.
