APPT 2007 - Manila

Postby DM101 » Mon Nov 26, 2007 12:20 pm

The name of Brett Parise will be etched in poker history forever as the first winner on the new PokerStars.net Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT).

Parise, a 22-year-old political science student originally from Indiana in the USA, outlasted a field of 255 players at the Hyatt Hotel and Casino in Manila, Philippines, to pocket the first prize of $179,775: one of the biggest tournament prizes ever awarded in Asian poker.

What makes Parise’s performance more impressive is that he qualified for the tournament via a free-entry tournament on PokerStars.

Holding a 2:1 chip lead when the heads-up battle with Thailand-based US lawyer Ira Blumenthal started, Parise gradually wore down his more experienced opponent. On the final hand, Parise called the all-in bet of Blumenthal with a pair of 10s. Blumenthal’s hand of J 5 was dominated and did not improve on a board of Ks Qc 9c Kh 9h.

The minor placings were filled by another US student Nicholas Bamman (third), PokerStars’ Supernova Van Marcus (Australia) and Maor Feldinger, an Israeli student playing in his first major poker tournament.

The APPT continues next month at the Paradise Seoul Casino at the Walker Hill Hotel in Seoul, South Korea. That event is scheduled for September 26-30. The APPT grand final will then be held at Star City Casino in Sydney from December 13-16.

Final results (APPT Manila, Hyatt Hotel and Casino, Manila, Philippines)

1. Brett Parise (USA) $179,775
2. Ira Blumenthal (Thailand) $113,858
3. Nicholas Bamman (USA) $62,921
4. Van Marcus (Australia) $44,940
5. Maor Feldinger (Isreal) $35,955
6. Roger Spets (Sweden) $26,966
7. Bas van Liere (Netherlands) $20,974
8. Kazuhiro Sato (Japan) $14,981
9. Derrick Hernandez (Philippines) $11,386
10. Steve Junhee Yea (South Korea) $8390

Hi Guys!

It's now time for the APPT Manila on November 13-16. The Penultimate leg of the APPT before heading to Sydney for the Grand Finale on December. I wish you all guys good luck for grabbing a seat for the Manila Leg and this is the time for us Filipinos to take advantage of this opportunity. Who knows? Maybe one of the Kakis might be the Champion.

Good Luck!

Not that lucky last Sunday. The Singaporean Kakis have beaten me and i made so many lose plays. I really hate to beaten, but it's more better than a Bad Beat. LOL! Oh well, i am going back to play the Phase 1 Freeroll again to qualify Phase 2.

Try to qualify to Phase 2 before the APPT Manila Freeroll concludes this Sunday and i'll try to qualify also in the PokerKaki Freeroll to get a slot on the Phase 2 Tournament this Sunday.
