APPT Macau Main Event

An Unorthodox Strategy for the Chuck Truck

Charles Chua came by media row just before play resumed and said that he had consumed half a bottle of whiskey at dinner to drown his sorrows from some beats that he took leading up to the last break. We thought he might be taking the piss but he had a bottle of whiskey on a service table near his seat and took several liberal swigs from it during the first few hands of post-dinner play.

Someone else must have thought it was not a good idea for Chua to be consuming so much booze while still alive in the tournament. During the recent all-in confrontation between Kuok Wai Will Cheong and Edward Sabat, the whiskey bottle disappeared from the service table.
