The APT Poker Weekend Series Manila at Casino Filipino, Waterfront Manila Pavilion Hotel and Casino resumes today at 1pm for Day 1A of the PHP27,500 buy-in Main Event.

The High Rollers Event will be resuming at 3:30pm with the remaining six contenders looking to bag the first place cash prize of PHP601,000. Unfortunately for one of them, there will be no payout as they are in the bubble stage with only five players seeing the money. John Tech currently leads with 161,500 chips.
There will also a Last Chance Main Event Mega Satellite at 6pm. With a buy-in of PHP2,750, players can battle their way cheaply into the Main Event.
APT would also like to acknowledge Akira Ohyama of Japan, the newest pro player of 888Poker. We will certainly be keeping tabs on how Ohyama fares at the Main Event.
Good luck to all the players!
