The second day of action at the Asian Poker Tour (APT) Macau poker festival witnessed another three side event title winners in the form of US pro Nam Le, China’s Wu Bo and Katsuhiro Motu from Japan.

It was Le’s first APT title win after having come close on a previous occasion at APT Macau in 2009 when he finished second in the High Roller side event. Yesterday it was in a field of 21 players that included Joe Hachem, Oliver Spiedel, Winfred Yu, Conrad Coetzer and Tom Hall.

Le won at heads up against Nicholas Wong after calling his short-stacked opponent’s K 10 shove with A 9. The dealer tabled A 6 7 A 5? to give Le trip aces and the HKD 841,000 title.
