The home stretch of the 2019 PokerStars LIVE Asia Red Dragon Jeju has been reached and the penultimate day of the festival saw the Main Event and Baby Dragon play down to a champion at the Jeju Shinhwa World - Landing Casino. One further High Roller event was scheduled and Day 1 of the ₩10,000,000 Super High Roller turned out to attract a decent field size once more to follow into the footsteps of all successful previous events.

After nine levels of 40 minutes each, a field of 75 entries including 62 unique players and 13 re-entries and a trio from Singapore topped the 47 survivors with Graeme Siow (1,570,000) and Alex Lee (1,004,000) as the only chip millionaires. Their countryman Dingxiang Ong sits in third place with 813,000 and other notables in the overnight top 10 include Szymon Wysocki (711,000), Shenming Yin (595,000) and Steve Yea (594,000).

Yin and Dong Chen (264,000) were the only players to fire three bullets and both made it through to Day 2. They are joined by such familiar faces as Joshua Zimmerman (576,000), Lester Edoc (558,000), Kazuhiko Yotsushika (540,000), Natalie Teh (514,000), Yake Wu (450,000) and Jamie Lee (417,000) to name just a few of those holding an above-average stack.

Single-Day High Roller champion Ben Lai, Chen An Lin, Derek Ip, Huahuan Feng, Ruihong Tao and Cosmos Yamanaka were among those that failed to bag and tag for tonight.

Franctic Early Action; Three-Way All-In Vaults Siow to the Top

In the first three levels of the day with hundreds of big blinds at their disposal, the players wasted little time to put their chips to use. Shenming Yin doubled right away with aces versus sevens against Liang Chen, then ran a triple barrel bluff with eight-high and was caught before the first bullet came to a crashing end when his aces were cracked by kings.

The fifth level of the day saw a massive three-way all-in in which Graeme Siow with kings held up against the ace-king of Jieming Xu and the pocket queens of Bin Sun. Siow jumped to nearly four times the starting stack and retained his chip lead for the remainder of the evening. Fellow Singaporean Alex Lee late-registered and sat down right next to Siow to become the only other chip millionaire on the first tournament day.

Towards the end of the night, the pots grew bigger and many participants tried to run up their stacks with a lot of preflop aggression. That backfired in the case of Chen An Lin when his ace-queen clashed with the ace-king of Dingxiang Ong, who spiked a king in the window. Ong won another big pot when he cracked the turned nut straight of Derek Ip with a flush on the river.

Ben Lai, who had won the ₩5,000,000 Single-Day High Roller and reached the final two tables of the ₩2,500,000 Red Dragon Main Event, was sent to the rail at the end of the night when he failed to catch any help with tens against the pocket jacks of Joshua Zimmerman. The late rush of eliminations cut down the field by one third as only 47 survivors claimed chips to their name for Day 2.

All those that wish to take a shot at the juicy prize pool can do so during the first 40-minute level on Day 2 as of 1 p.m. local time. New players will receive 250,000 in chips and the blinds recommence at 4,000-8,000 with a big blind ante of 8,000.

The tournament will play down to a champion on Friday, November 15th, 2019, and the PokerNews team will provide all the updates from the floor from start-to-finish.

Day 1 Completed

zedmaster84 • Level 9: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

It appears that 50 players out of 75 entries have bagged up for the night and will return at 1 p.m. local time for the final day of the tournament and festival here in Jeju. Chip counts and a recap of today's action are to follow.

Huang Gifted a Double

zedmaster84 • Level 9: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

During the final hands of the night, the stack of Bo Jin was melted to almost zero after he clashed with Yiqing Huang.

According to Edward Kim, Jin had raised to 19,000 and called a three-bet to 45,000 in a battle cutoff versus button. Jin then open-shoved the {k-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{6-Spades} flop and Huang snap-called with the {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}. Jin tabled {9-}{7-} and the {k-Hearts} turn and {a-Hearts} river further improved Huang to a full house.

Sun and Zhang Vanish

zedmaster84 • Level 9: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

Bin Sun lost the vast majority of his stack when he got it in with the {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts} and Chunqing Wang looked him up with the {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}.

"I folded tens, watch a ten will come," Joshua Zimmerman said to Natalie Teh on the same table.

The prediction of Zimmerman didn't come true as the board ran out {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}. Sun was down to crumbs and tripled once but departed soon after. Chenxu Wang was also no longer in her seat as the chips had been sent over to runaway chip leader Graeme Siow.
