After another long day of 11 levels, just 17 players remain in the Sydney Championships Main Event with Andy Lee topping the field - just ahead of Reece Bedot.
Lee, a former Star Summer Series Main Event champion and regular high stakes cash game player here at The Star, used his noted aggression to build his stack and become one of only two plaues sitting above 1.5 million.
The other, Bedot, began his rise midway through the day when he eliminated danger man James Obst, however it was a huge clash against Jarryd Godena when both flops trip Qs that ultimately rocketed him towards the lead.
The remaining players will return tomorrow to play down to a winner and there is still plenty of quality in the field with the likes of Matthew Wakeman, Stevan Chew, Kahle Burns and Errolyn Strang all still in contention.
The top 5 stacks are ...
1. Andy Lee - 1,761,000
2. Reece Bedot - 1,684,000
3. Darwin Lai - 1,168,000
4. Matthew Wakeman - 1,058,000
5. Joel Cohen - 1,056,000
