The Metro Big Blind Ante PHP 1.5 Million Guaranteed attracted 472 runners throughout the four starting days. With all those days in the books, we now move on to Day 2 where players hunt down the money and a seat to tomorrow’s finals. 

Good morning everyone! Get ready for a heated day with 75 players back on attack. At high command is John Lambert Sarmiento with 285,700. Sarmiento amassed his huge stack at Day 1B. William Ysmael will also be returning. He earned second rank with 263,200.

Day 1D chip leader, Joseph Michael Avelino (pictured below) racked up a hefty one at the largest starting day that pulled in 179 entries. He topped the 33 survivors with 227,700 to earn the fourth overall position just under Dennis Enriquez at 252.000. 

While the leaders get the paparzzi treatment from the media, keen eyes will also be on the pros and past winners as they look to make life difficult for them. Some of these players are Lester Edoc, Euryd Rivera, John Tech, Michael De Leon, and Rommel Angeles. Rivera was the latest champion of the Metro having won the 2M Guaranteed event back in August. He also got very close to winning two other events this year. As for Edoc, he is having a superb year taking down Main Events in the country. He even has a few earned right here at Metro. 

Good luck to all!

For all those unable to make the cut, not to worry. Metro has you covered. At 8pm tonight is the ever-so-popular Bounty tournament. Buy-in is PHP 2,200. This is a freezeout. Players are awarded PHP 500 for every hunter axed.
