APPT Macau High Rollers Event

Just A Reminder

Just a reminder to those that may be following from within an hour's journey to the Grand Lisboa . . . registration closes in an hour.

So if anyone has a spare HK$88,800 or US$11,000 lying round, then head down as this is the last level before registration closes.

Marcus Having Drink Trouble

"I want a Coke with lemon" asked Van Marcus to the waitress.

She stood there staring blankly at Marcus before he asked a bi-lingual table mate, "hey, how do I order a Coke with lemon?"

He uttered something in Cantonese to the waitress and she quickly hurried off to fetch his order.

"Leng law . . . just say that" another responded.

"How f**king hard is it to order a drink here!" muttered Marcus as he began playing the next hand.

Theo Tran Eliminated

Busted again!
Busted again!
After entering the pot with a raise, only to have Stewart Scott three-bet out of the small blind, Theo Tran four-bet all in.

With Scott needing to call 21,500 into a pot over 20,000, he made the call tabling {K-Diamonds}{J-Spades} to be behind Tran's {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}.

Unfortunately for Tran, the board would run out {8-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{10-Diamonds} to see him busted from his second tournament today, while Scott climbs to 130,000 in chips.

60 Is The Number

Registration is still open until the end of the next level, and with players busting from the Main Event, there is a good chance that last years number of 61 should be reached if not exceeded.

On a board reading {10-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{Q-Spades} Kent Del Rosario fired out a bet of 35,500 into Emad Tahtouh.

Tahtouh sat there riffling chips for over four minutes before making the call.

Rosario tabled his {A-Diamonds}{J-Spades} for a rivered Broadway straight, and Tahtouh angrily mucked his hand to slip to just 25,000 in chips.
