MPC Event 2: Charity Event was won by Singapore's Lim Min Soon aka "MJFX" who outlasted a 94-player field winning HKD $47,800 plus a HKD $11,000 Red Dragon entry. The long running charity tournament raised HKD $47,000 for local Macau charities such as Caritas de Macau and the MCDA.
It was a an easy finish for Lim who had 95% of the chips in play when the final hand came against Ping-Hsiang Hsu. The Taiwanese player moved all his remaining chips with AK and Lim decided to make a pot odds call with J7.
The board ran A-T-7-Q-K for the unlikely straight sending the 33-year old into the winner's circle.
The banker previously had a runner-up finish in the same event so he was ecstatic with the victory. "I'm so happy, this is my first time winning a tournament. I was so unlucky last time."
