Welcome back to the Crown Poker Room in Melbourne, Australia for the continued action of the first-ever WSOP APAC. Today is the third and final chance for players to make it to Day 2 of Event 1: $1,100 No Limit Holdem Accumulator.

We are expecting a massive field today. Some have speculated that we might even get close to 500 entrants. Added with the 666 entrants over the past two days, that makes for one gargantuan field, but of course, only time will tell just how packed the tables are today.

Once again the PokerListings Live Reporting Team will be on the floor providing all the action from the WSOP APAC. It’s going to be a huge day, so make sure to stay tuned!
