APPT Manila Main Event

Seat 6: Hyoung Jin Nam, Korea (561,000 in chips)

Hyoung Jin Nam
A business administrator from Seoul (he also holds a medical science degree), this 34-year-old has been playing poker for less than three years and is celebrating his tournament debut in perfect fashion – with a final table appearance and enough chips to go all the way to the title. He bought in directly to play in the APPT Manila Main Event, and lies first in chips, thanks mainly to a huge pot late on Day Two.
