High Rollers Champion: Choi Byung Kyoo

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.
