MACAU, CHINA, January 15, 2013 – Tuesday afternoon saw 22 players return for the Event 3: $2,000 Deepstack title at the Macau Poker Cup (MPC).

The tournament, hosted by PokerStars Macau, originally began with 199 runners but played down to the money late Monday night where each Day 1 survivor was guaranteed at least HKD $4,300.

The Day 2 Final would see the remaining field jockeying for their share of the HKD $347,454 prize pool.

At the end it was Canadian Martin Liang who came away with the victory after agreeing to chop the top prize money with Singaporean runner-up Chris Chong for HKD $71,200 each.

Playing for the title itself, Chong moved his remaining chips with 3d-4d and was called by Liang who held Ah-6s.

The board ran Ac-As-Ts-5s-4h, giving the Chinese Canadian a 3-of-a-kind Aces and the official Event 3 trophy.
