The first four side events are in the bag in the APT Asian Series Cebu 2013 as the eight-day poker festivities got underway last Wednesday at the at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino in Cebu, Philippines in partnership with the All In Poker Club Cebu.
Wednesday action saw Dae Hoon Lim grab the trophy in the Mix Max 10-6-4 Event even as Jan-Eric Schwippert won the Charity Event later that day. The beneficiary of the charity tournament was the Cebu City Task Force on Street Children receiving the 30,000 pesos worth of add ons as a donation.
While yesterday, Choi Byung Kyoo joined the winner’s circle after coming out on top of the PokerAce High Rollers Event. Kyoo had a 3:1 chip lead over Minsoo Kim in the heads-up round on his way to the title. In 2011, Kyoo came close to an APT high rollers title when he came in 2nd in the same event in Cebu. Although 2012 APT Player of the Year Samad Razavi bubbled the money in the PokerAce High Rollers event, his multi-tabling paid off as he ended the day with the Mix Game PLH-PLO championship and brought his career winnings to over 1 Million US Dollars.
Poker action continues with the day’s Main Event Satellites with Head Hunter and Ladies of Poker side events both starting at 1PM.
