Noh Survives Early All In

We're guessing that Tae Jun Noh didn't plan to be all in forty-five minutes into the tournament when he arrived here earlier this afternoon. But that's exactly what happened. With 2,600 in the middle on a flop of {9-Diamonds} {3-Clubs} {7-Diamonds}, Noh was all in for 6,675 and called. It was a bad spot for Noh; his {6-Spades} {8-Hearts} was drawing against his opponent's {Q-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts}. He promptly filled his straight with a turn {10-Diamonds}, then dodged the remaining diamonds in the deck when the river fell {Q-Clubs}.

The double-up restores Noh's stack to about 15,000.

Day 1B Starts Off With Welcome Remarks

[user133555]
Just before Day 1B begins, APPT president Jeffrey Haas and FPT head Alan Escano give the welcome remarks.

Escano remarked that not only was the Cebu event the annual championship of the FPT, but it was also looking to become Asia's version of the PokerStars Carribean Adventure.

We've also got another exciting traditional drum and dance presentation from some locals before we get underway.

Good Move APPT

[user133554]
Initial feedback from players, media and those involved with APPT Cebu all say that PokerStars.net has got it right and the decision to move the event from Manila to this famous tourist destination has been spot-on!

“It’s all about giving players and their families and friends more to do when they come to one of our events,” said Jeffrey Haas, APPT President. “We have learnt this from the PCA –PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, which keeps on growing in popularity each year. I am sure APPT Cebu will develop in the same way”

Editor’s Note: Good move APPT!
