The APT Philippines 2017 is winding down to its final three days with more games to play and more trophies awaiting its rightful owners. The past six days has seen ten of these symbolic APT glass awards claimed with the latest one going to Filipino Jeremy Catalig for his victory at the WeLoveSport.com Deep Stack Turbo event.
The WLS event had 32 warm-bodied seats all revved up for the evening’s turbo action. One by one players rose and fell in rapid succession and soon the final heads up round was reached between Catalig and Koji Takagi. While Takagi had the early chip advantage, the blinds gained on them keeping both players perpetually in the short stack zone. When Catalig overtook Takagi, he eventually sealed the win with his 10♥ 6♦ defeating A♠ 7♦ on a board of 5♠ 6♣ 4♣ 4♥ J♦. Catalig won the PHP 86,900 first place prize and the event trophy.
1st Jeremy Catalig – Philippines – PHP 86,900
