The Champ is Here!

Neil Arce, left, takes out seatmate Jun Te

We now have a new chip leader, and it's none other than defending APT Philippines 2010 champion Neil Arce.

Pre-flop, Neil raised to 3,500 from the cut-off. Fellow Filipino pro Jun Te then re-raised to 10,500. The blinds got out of the way and action went back to Neil, who made the call.

Flop: {k-Spades}{3-Spades}{8-Diamonds}

Neil led out for 14,000, only to have Jun Te respond by re-raising to 34,000. Sparks went flying as Neil declared all-in, and Jun instantly called!

Neil: {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}
Jun: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}

A horrified Jun was looking to hit an ace now after thinking that he had the best hand on the flop. The turn {3-Hearts} and river {6-Diamonds} did not help him, sending the once big-stacked Jun to the rail and giving Neil a whopping 160,000 in chips!
