Players: 59

9. “Mark” Chen Zhao from Macau – Prize: $1000 Deep Stack Entry + $1350
10. William Charm – Prize: $1000 Deep Stack Entry + $1350

Notes:
· With three players remaining (as the top two both won seats to APPT Macau), the tension was high. Christopher moved all-in from the button position for 15,000 chips. Kim called from the small blind position and showed his pocket 10s. Christopher showed his suited 9 and 5 of diamonds, and needed help. The flop was 8c-Js-2d. Christopher needed running cards to win. The turn card was a 7c, giving Christopher some outs as a six or ten would make a straight. But the river brought a 8h and the tournament was over when Kim’s two pair of 8s and 10s beat Christopher’s single pair or 8s.
· $88,500 was raised for the Caritas De Macau (http://www.caritas.org.mo) charity. Caritas De Macau is a social service organization of Macau.
· Players who finished from 11th to 35th also won a $600 APPT Phase 1 Entry
