APPT Sydney 2007 Grand Final Winner: Grant Levy

Postby DM101 » Wed Dec 19, 2007 1:06 pm

The journey started in the steamy Philippines capital of Manila in late-August, swept through the bustling metropolis of Seoul in South Korea, made a stop in the world’s gaming capital Macau before culminating in Australia’s biggest city, overlooking some of the world’s most recognisable landmarks.

The first season of the PokerStars.net Asia Pacific Poker Tour has ended with the crowning of the APPT Grand Final champion at Star City Casino in Sydney.

Grant Levy, a teacher from Sydney’s outer-west has become the first Australian player to a $1 million prize on home soil after he outlasted Jeremiah Vinsant from the USA in a marathon heads-up battle that went 67 hands (and a final table of 226 hands).

The 28-year-old father of two had plenty of support at the final table from friends and fellow local players, while his family (and students) kept a close eye on his progress.

A former rugby league coach, Levy has stamped himself as the hottest property on the local tournament scene. He was third at the PokerNews Cup in Melbourne, outlasting a field of 428 players to finish third (winning $131,800) and has taken down two significant online tournaments in recent months.
