PERTH POKER CHAMPS: Aufdemkampe setting the pace

John Aufdemkampe (pictured left) is enjoying a highly successful start to the Perth Poker Championships at Burswood after finishing first and second in successive events.

Sitting third in chips heading into the final day of the $550 No Limit Hold’em Repechage/Accumulator, Aufdemkampe emerged victorious after a torrid 90-minute heads-up battle against Nino Marotta. Ladies champion Errolyn Strang placed sixth.

There was also plenty of cash flying about in the $120 Pot Limit Omaha w/ Rebuys and Add-ons event among the field of 50 players with Aufdemkampe again reaching the heads-up battle only to fall short of victory as MJ took out the first prize of more than $12,000.

Players are starting to arrive after two major events in the Philippines in recent weeks, which will boast fields even further than the impressive start to the series.
