Kaki-news Turbo: APPT Macau, Dandanaka, PKL 2, LWPS & More

In case you missed it:

Singaporeans made waves in APPT Macau last week
If MPCC is dominated by Malaysians, we can arguably say the same for Singaporeans in APPT Macau.
It was a stacked field with international and regional notables though none came as big as Mr Phil Ivey. (read Tiger Woods of Poker). Singaporeans put up such an impressive performance in every sporting sense that put shame to FAS’s laughable GOAL 20XX ambitions. Yes I know there isn’t much in relation, but I can’t help putting some stick into the current state of Singapore football. (Singapore crashed out WC Qualifying Rd 3 pointless and a recent 0-4 loss to 10-man China at home.)

Now back to the main news, Pokerstars Team Asia Pro Bryan Huang and High Stakes Cash games Pro Nat Seet hogged the headlines when they were crushing day 1 and day 2 of the APPT but by the end of day 3, Tan Tai Zheng and Fam Kai Yat were the only remaining Singaporeans in contention, both eventually making the final table, finishing 8th and 6th respectively and making Singapore Poker community proud. The little known HK based Tai Tan has an impressive year, making 6 final tables in the Macau APOY poker calendar to finish number 1 Singapore player in the APOY 2011 rankings while Kai-Yat capped an impressive year along with his Sunday million win. Both moved up in the Hendon Mob Singapore rankings to 7th and 6th respectively.

Meanwhile, Daniel “Dangerous” Chua, local double crown LWPS winner added another silverware to his impressive bulging trophy cabinet by taking down APPT Event 8 HKD5000 KO Bounty. With the win, he has now squeezed into the top 10 Hendon Mob Singapore rankings and sealed the unofficial title as “Pokerkaki of the year”. With the LWPS finale looming, he is the man to watch and may well yet add another LWPS title.

No end to the “Dandanaka Scam” saga.
While we reflect on a good month for Singapore poker, there’s yet another ugly and unfortunate episode of the “Dandanaka scam” series to report. Part 2 (or was it part 3?) of the Dandanaka series promise to be dumber than ever. Apparently, Dandanaka was trying to do the accused scammer "He-man" a favour by helping him make a phone call from her home phone to complete the scam transaction. Dandanaka claimed she didn’t know the “He-man” was scamming as she was trying to lead a poker free life. This plot is just too creative, Dandanaka, one of the most “brilliant” “XXXX artist” got re-bluff by one of her rare poker acquaintances whom she happened to know only by name and on MSN and she believes he has no phone!!. (btw, Dandanaka must also believe "He-man" 's family and closer friends do not own a phone such that she as a mere acquaintance willing to help He-man. hehe....

LWPS Finale and Causeway Team Challenge this weekend
This is no ordinary LWPS series this weekend, it is the season 2 ending LWPS finale, the heftiest prize pool and biggest LWPS weekend guaranteed! Early bird main event raffles and freeroll to main event seats are available. What are you waiting for? Quickly book your ferry tickets and cabin now.
Details here: http://www.pokerkaki.com/article/lwps_x ... _2_finale/

Last but not least, a historic event is going to take place on board MV Leisure world, Pokerstars Team Asia Pro Bryan Huang will spearhead the Singapore Team in the inaugural Causeway Team challenge on board MV Leisure World. The Team “S” is voted by the kaki community, so be there to rail the team to an historic win over our causeway neighbours.

By the way, rumour has it that mystery kaki celebrity “Pokerman” is attending the finale. The problem is no one knows how he looks like. There is a “pokerman hunt” going on, please post photos of pokerman if you found him. A tip how he can be spotted, if you speak to him, he has this habit to “lol” first and then he would ask “any games?” Oh yes, pokerman, if you are reading this, please complete the quads or no quads prop bet with Ikelos.

Before i forget, its executive TD, Ivan Tan's birthday this friday. Remember to offer your wishes and congrats him on his recent EPT London deep run on board.

Love the post, please designate mjfx as the newsletter chairman

As for next year, I intend to bring more SG kakis to Macau by hosting satellites on homegames or even live and the team SG description will be "Quality, not quantity!"

We always have smallest numbers in terms of representation and yet we produce top finishes everywhere.

Of course I was inspired by this due to the showing of Team SG in the Causeway challenge. Our team did well and was fortunate enough to score a win over our causeway rivals. I was very inspired by the way the team came together the night before and spent hours discussing and plugging whatever leaks we could have found.

Hopefully next year, more of us can shine on the international scene!

Love the "Kaki-news" Turbo man, you should make this a monthly affair!
