$3,000 NLH Turbo victory by Tsuchikawa makes him Japan's All-time leader in Official APOY Events


MACAU, CHINA, January 16, 2013 – Late Tuesday night, Japan's Tetsuya Tsuchikawa won the $3,000 NLH Turbo side event at the Macau Poker Cup (MPC) hosted by PokerStars Macau.

He beat the 158-player field and collected HKD $101,400 for his effort in the fast paced 1-day event.

The tournament prize pool exceeded HKD $400,000 and paid out 19 players,.

The win represents Tsuchikawa's second career Official Asia Player of the Year Event title and the poker pro now tops the All-time Rankings list for Japan -- previously held by Hirotoshi Nakabo.

The final table included Team PokerStars Pro Vivian Im and Hong Kong's Fu Man Tin who was making his second FT appearance in two days. Neither was able to gain any steam and were amongst the early eliminations as Im and Tin busted in 8th and 9th place respectively.

Like the tournament's name suggests, the action moved at a rapid pace and even the heads up battle was short lived between Taiwanese Morgan Lee and Tsuchikawa.

Barely 10 minutes into the duel, Lee moved his 400k-stack and Tsuchikawa, who had 1.4M chips, made the quick call.

Lee: Kh-8h
Tsuchikawa: Ah-4c

A flop of 7s–2c-Ac pulled the Japanese player ahead with top pair and a turn-river of 4s-As secured the victory.
