Fredrik Andersson is the chip leader at the end of a tough Day 1b in the WPT Amsterdam Main Event. The big names were out in force today, and Andersson seemingly cruised to a stack of 142,800 ahead of Day 2.

It was always going to be tough, with no fewer than three Champions Club members taking to the felt. Ema Zajmovic, Ryan Riess and Chino Rheem were all in attendance today after Champions Club members Anthony Zinno and Farid Yachou advanced yesterday.

Byron Kaverman, Sam Greenwood, Steve O’Dwyer and Ludovic Geilich were among the other big names in attendance, as well as WPTDeepStacks Amsterdam final tablists Farid Chati, Dzmitry Rabotkin and Viktor Lavi all swapped DeepStacks for Main Tour, along with the runner-up in that event Paul Theobald.

The names continued to filter in as the day progressed, with both Jack Salter and younger brother Louis Salter joining. Louis finished runner-up in this event last year, and advances with a stack of 75,800.

Felipe Ramos also jumped in with three levels remaining and ended up bagging 35,200. Other stacks include Sofia Lovgren (19,500), Bryan Paris (18,400), Thomas Muhlocker (44,500), Willem Eilert (33,300), Milan Rabsz (46,000) and Andre Paulino (84,700).

Champions Club member Ema Zajmovic (28,300) and Ryan Riess (52,800) also advanced to Day 2. Other big stacks include Marijn van Puffelen (135,900), Noah Boeken (111,000) and Igor Yaroshevskyy (91,200).
