MPC Red Dragon: Hu leads day 1C. Who? Hu!
After three calendar days and 31 (and a half) levels of play, "day one" of the Macau Poker Cup: Red Dragon Main Event is now finished. The third and final flight has just concluded in the Grand Waldo Entertainment Complex in Macau, and we can all now look forward to day two proper tomorrow.
Joining Jordan Westmorland and Tomaz Yip as overnight leaders is Richard Hu, from China, who bagged up 183,000 chips tonight, the most from the 133 players on day 1C. Westmorland will lead overall going into day two, but you can only beat what is put in front of you, and Hu was irrepressible today.
When I spoke to him going into the last break, he had about 75,000 and was delighted to be above the average. But then he soared in the final few levels and more than doubled it, which is sensational going.
