Main Event

The Calm Before the Storm


This is it! We are on the final day of the 2010 Asian Poker Tour Philippines Main Event which means before this day ends we'll be crowning another APT champion!

While everyone is already in the money, we know that these pros (and some international poker scene newbies) also want the prestige that comes along with going down in history as champ in one of the most celebrated international poker events in Asia!

So who's going to win it?

Will it be Filipino Mike Puno or Singaporean Bryan Huang? Both will enter the final table as big stack bullies. (Quick tangent: Puno and Huang both has 800K+ stack of chips, doubling up the third-place player in the current rankings.)

Will the Filipinos continue to protect their turf? Aside from Puno, there are three other Pinoys in the field: Tonypet Albano, Stephen Lim and Michael Cua. Can they step up their game and duplicate the feat of Neil Arce, who won last year's edition?

Then there's the likable Li You Nan from China--- we might need the translators for him during APN interviews but he sure knows how to speak the poker lingo and translates it to winning hands.

Completing the field are Lee Changhun from South Korea, Ben Meredith from United Kingdom and the lone rose among the thorns, Tracy Hugh.

Cards about to fly as the final table is about to explode with mad poker action here at the Resorts World Manila!
