When the bubble burst, payday ensued shortly after with Japan’s Takashi Hirukawa collecting his fifth place dough and Norway’s Kai Paulsen signing for his keep in 4th place. Vietnam’s Ancle tried to hold on but was eliminated in 3rd place by chip leader, Japan’s Iori Yogo. At the heads up round, Yogo had a big advantage in chips but Vietnam’s Nguyen Phu Danh quickly doubled up with his ace-king. Two hands later, Nguyen shoved again and this time he lost the bet with Yogo’s A♦ J♥ landing a higher pair on the board against 3♦ 3♥.

Super Deep Stack Turbo recap
The Super Deep Stack Turbo event fielded 24 entries for a prize pool of $4,660. There were several APT regulars at the felt but most of them would fall before the money. The bubble burst when Frenchman Vincent Chauve railed Australia’s Justin Worth. Guam’s Ron Tse sent Singapore’s Eugene Lin Weiquan packing in 4th place with ace-jack finding a buddy on the board against Weiquan’s ace-king. Chauve booted Japan’s Akihiro Yamada in 3rd place with his 10♦ 3♥ completing a straight against A♦ J♣ on a board of 4♦ J♠ K♣ Q♥ 9♥. At heads up, Chauve had a 3:1 chip advantage. Tse was eventually all in holding A♠ 5♠ and Chauve had K♠ 9♦. With a king showing up on the board, Chauve claimed the trophy and the first place prize of money of $2,000.

High Roller recap
The High Roller event had a difficult time drawing in players but it did see cards flying with two players going at it, France’s Fabien Parisel and UK’s Samad Razavi. Parisel dominated the early rounds chunking down Razavi who then had to claw his way back up. Razavi managed to reclaim some of his lost chips but fell short when his A♦ Q♦ drew blanks against Parisel’s 9♣ 9♠. Parisel claimed his first trophy of the festival along with $2,910 in cash.
