Asian Pacific Poker Tour Macau Day 1a complete

Wednesday, 19 May 2010

The PokerStars APPT Macau kicked off yesterday with 88 players taking to the tables for the first day of the tournament. By the end of the day just 43 remained in contention with Alexandre Cheing stacking the tallest pile of chips, up to 113,100 from the 20,000 starting stack.

Team PokerStars Pro Raymond Wu managed to wind up in third place after a tumultuous last hand – he re-raised a 1,500 steal to 5,500 in the big blind and lead out for 6,500 on a Kh-7s-5d flop. His opponent made it 14,000 and Wu called, checking through the 6h turn with his opponent. The Jh river saw Wu check-call a 15,000 bet and turned over 8-4 for a straight to beat his opponent’s KQ, taking him to 87,475.
