Sumit Sapra survives Jeju Red Dragon Day 1A

by Gutshot Admin Posted on 06 Dec, 2018

The PokerStars Live 2018 Red Dragon Festival began in full force in the Landing Casino, Jeju, South Korea. The series is a 10-day high-stakes extravaganza, which began on Nov 30 and will go on till Dec 9.

The series saw its Main Event, RED DRAGON KRW 1,000,000,000 GTD (~INR 6.34 Crores), begin its first starting flight yesterday. With the buy-in of the event at KRW 2,2000,000 (~INR 1.39 Lakhs) Day 1A attracted a total of 376 entries, but only 141 survived the day. Most players signing up were of Chinese origin, but there were a total of six Indians in the mix too.

Raghav BansalKalyan ChakravarthyAbhinav IyerAdda52 Pro Kunal PatniSumit Sapra and MadOverPoker Pro Zarvan Tumboli were the Indian contenders on Day 1A, but only Sapra survived the day. He finished 24th with an above average stack of 87,000 and will look forward to playing in Day 2 of the Main Event on 7th December. Sapra is a well-known pro with many live winnings in his bag.

Sapra also cashed out at 16th in the Jeju Red Dragon Megastack event for KRW 1,985,000 held a couple days ago. Sapra’s total live earnings go well over $200,000 at the time of writing. He also made a good run online yesterday, finishing 2nd in Spartan’s Destiny with INR 5.54 Lakhs.

 The chip leader to emerge out of a field of 376 though, was China’s Hao Qi Xie with a stack of 218,600. He has almost double the chips of his closest challenger, Hong Kong’s Chun Kong Kwok (128,800 chips), followed by China’s Qiang Xu with 126,100 chips.

Hong Kong’s Andy Ying Kit Chan, China’s Hao Chen and Taiwan’s Pete Chen were some of the notables to run out of fuel on Day 1A. Day 1B will commence today at 6pm local time and a lot of players are expected to sign up for it, especially Asians.
