Tae Jun Noh
One of three Korean players at the final table, the story of this 24-year-old is not dissimilar to his compatriot and final table rival Michael Chang. He is a computer IT student from Seoul and has been playing poker for two years, mainly online. He journeyed to Manila for last year’s APT event and returned to the Philippines this year, wiser and ready to make his mark. He used FPPs to buy in, and sits in third chip position.
