Yet another high-octane weekend flew by as the Leisure World Poker Series celebrated its fifth birthday, and its twentieth tournament weekend. The Main Event drew two hundred and thirty-one runners, setting yet another record for LWPS attendances and prize-pools.

Main Event

Fifty-four runners clawed their way into Day 2, with no player having established a significant overnight chip advantage. With barely two levels of play gone by however, circuit veterans Aaron Lam and Terence Lai had forged ahead into the chip lead. Also still in the hunt were former champions Muhd. Dasreen, Lim Min Soon, current title holder Jimmy Yar, and the community’s most beloved player ‘Uncle’ Bobby Cheong.

A thirty-six runner payout meant that bubble play was upon the players in no time, and five tables of hand-for-hand play saw the big stacks tighten the noose against the smaller stacks. The bubble was burst from a scene straight out of Cooler Town. One of the medium stacks found action folded round to him in late position, and was happy to put the lot in with Jacks in the hole. Unfortunately, the player on his immediate right was siting on Queens, and more critically, a larger stack. The bursting of the bubble also marked another first for the LWPS: a Day 2 absentee folding and blinding into the money.

Beijing, CHINA – July 31, 2014 – The stellar PokerStars.net sponsored 2014 Beijing Millions concluded this past Sunday and was won by China's Chen Qin (秦辰).

The poker tournament was the Asia Pacific Poker Tour's (APPT) first ever event in mainland China. It was held at the Beijing Star Poker Club from July 18-27 and the Main Event drew a massive field of 2,732 entries.

The tournament field is the largest ever outside of America and also sets a new PokerStars record -- surpassing the previous mark of 2,446 entries from the 2013 Brazilian Series of Poker.

Most of us are already accustomed to having our favourite game demonised in the mainstream media. Every time poker makes the news, it's treated by uninformed writers with a series of broad generalisations, always guilty without the opportunity to establish innocence.

Every now and again however, we're privileged with a writer who bothers to get into the nuts and bolts of things; who hears the other side of the story, and offers up a balanced treatment of the subject matter. When we get really lucky, the writer can also weave a compelling narrative. Farhan Shah is such a writer, and he's just had "The Millionaire Button Clickers" published in this month's edition of Esquire Singapore.

Once again the Leisure World Poker Series has broken all attendance and prize-pool records as it set sail on the M/V Leisure World last weekend. One can only hope this consecutive record-smashing trend foretells an explosive local poker boom.

Main Event

An unprecedented 203 players from two flights participated in the main event, packing the tournament area to the brim, leaving the guarantee in its wake and ballooning the prize pool to just over $52,000. Leading the poker flotilla after Day 1 was Chng Kia Yong ($106,200), with Hong Kong-based Lim Min Soon ($99,700) and online whiz Marvin Tay ($93,500) breathing down the leader’s neck.
