I didn't sleep last night because I was so excited about today," adding, “I want to win the APOY (Asian Player of the Year) and show that I am worthy of gaining my family's support. I won't stop playing just because I have a lead. I'm going to work hard and play all the (Official Asia Player of the Year) events.""This year the popularity of the Macau Millions is so much greater, particularly within the region." said the PokerStars Director of Live Operations for Asia-Pacific, Danny McDonagh, "Poker is really taking off in Asia.
