The Asian Poker Tour’s highly-popular Head Hunter side event kicked off the third day of the APT Asian Series Cambodia 2014 at the Queenco Casino & Hotel in Sihanoukville.
The Head Hunter event with a $220 buy-in started at 1:00 p.m. on Friday and as usual the poker enthusiasts came in droves to play. The bounty-flavored tournament attracted 103 entries which more than doubled the number of the same tournament held two years ago.
As the players took the felt during the middle of day three of the poker festivities, Daichi Tominaga – the newest APT champion, received his trophy for winning the High Rollers event along with the US$ 24,000 prize.
While in the APT Player of the Year race, Euryd Rivera still holds top spot but there has been some movement from second to fourth place. Jae Chul Chang is now a close second, trailing by 30.45 points. Feng Zhao has moved up to third and Azusa Maeda has moved down to fourth. And also trying to make a run to the top of the standings, back-to-back APT Player of the Year Sam Razavi. With these five players present in Cambodia, the race looks to heat up in the coming days.
