The action has wrapped up at the Galaxy Macau Hotel on Day 1 of the 2017 Triton Super High Roller Series HK $250,000 6-Max event. A field of 70 entries gathered throughout the day with Ben Lamb leading a pack of 50 survivors after nine levels of play.

A who's who of the best Hold'em players in the world funneled into the poker room of the Galaxy Macau Hotel in Taipa, Macau Monday afternoon. This was the first stop at Asia's largest gaming destination for the Triton Super High Roller Series. Play kicked off at 4 PM local time and the field grew right up until the final moments of Day 1.

Lamb bagged a stack of 184,300 to claim the top spot. Lamb finished the day with quite a distance from his closest competitor, Stephen Chidwick, who used the most out of a second bullet to close out with 129,300. Michael Addamo (128,900), Christoph Vogelsang (124,500), and Mikita Badziakouski (116,400) round out the top five stacks.

Recent Poker Masters champion Steffen Sontheimer just missed out on a top five spot ending the night with 114,800 while the likes of Dietrich Fast (112,800) and Li Bjorn (106,400) who both led at different parts of the day are also moving on.

Day 2 will kick off at 1 PM Tuesday afternoon and play will continue until a champion is crowned. The end has not come for anyone though as late registration and unlimited re-entry will remain open until after Level 10 on Day 2 (approx. 1:40 PM).

Anyone unfortunate enough to not make a deep run on Day 2 will at least be able to rest up for the Main Event. The highlight and headlining event of the series is set for 1 PM on Wednesday afternoon. The Main Event takes center stage and the buy-in raises to HK $1,000,000 (approx. US $128,000).

Day 1 Wrapped Up

Level 9 : 600/1,200, 200 ante

Day 1 has come to a close with 52 players remaining. Ben Lamb appears to be leading with a stack of 184,300 with several players crossing the six-figure stack mark.

A full rundown of the chip counts along with a full recap of the day's event will be posted as soon as they become available.

Record-Breaking Field Size

Level 9 : 600/1,200, 200 ante

With the total number of entries now sitting at 70 and late registration still open for another level, there is a possibility of doubling the previous mark set in Manila. Earlier this year a total of 43 entries were received in Manila and then Montenegro attracted 41 entries.

As it stands, this is already the largest HK $250,000 6-Max event for the Triton Super High Roller Series and may foreshadow a huge field for the HK $1,000,000 Main Event later this week.

Final Level of the NIght

Level 9 : 600/1,200, 200 ante

Play has entered Level 9, the final level of the night. At the end of the level the remaining players will bag up for the night and return at 1 PM on Tuesday to play down to a winner.

Registration remains open and will continue until the end of the Level 10 on Tuesday afternoon.

Level: 9
