Day 1b of the 2013 Asia Pacific Poker Tour Seoul Main Event drew 100 players on Friday, and after eight levels of play only 35 punched their ticket to Saturday's Day 2. Mike Kim bagged the biggest stack, finishing with 179,300, and is far and away the chip leader. Chane Kampanatsanyakakorn (134,500) joined Kim as the only other player to cross the six-figure mark on Day 1b.

Day 1b was not kind to many. Team PokerStars Pro Celina Lin got her chips into the middle of a {J-}{7-}{6-} board with {7-}{7-}, but ran into an opponent's {J-}{J-} and couldn't spike the miracle one outer to survive. PokerNews' own Kristy Arnett had a similar fate on Day 1b. After losing more than half her stack in Level 1 to a superior full house, Arnett made a final stand with {8-}{7-} for her last few big blinds. She found action from an opponent with {K-}{Q-}, and though she picked up a few outs after a {Q-}{6-}{5-}, flop, the turn and river were bricks.

The 222 combined entrants over the two starting days generated a total prize pool of ₩594,338,400. The top 24 players will make the money. Here is a breakdown of the final table payouts:
