WSOP APAC: Apr 8; Karamalikis & Kiwi G reach Accumulator final table


WSOP APAC daily wrap – April 8

While the Logies were being handed out at one end of the Crown Entertainment Complex, players were battling for spots at the inaugural WSOP APAC final table in the Crown Poker room.

After 14 hours of play on day two, the final nine players were decided with two Aussies and a Kiwi leading the regional charge in pursuit of the $1100 No Limit Hold’em Accumulator gold bracelet.

Befitting an event of this stature, one of the world’s winningest online players Bryan theczar19 Piccioli leads the field ahead of 2009 WSOP Main Event winner Jonathan Duhamel.

2012 November Niner Jeremy Ausmus is also still in contention for the $211,575 first prize as are a pair of Asian-based players – Malaysia’s Junzhong Loo and Iori Yogo from Japan.

Local hopes lie with two players at opposite ends of their poker careers – young gun Jonathan Karamalikis (chasing a fourth WSOP cash & pictured with thanks to wsop.com) and Graeme ‘Kiwi G’ Putt, who’s playing as well now as at any time in his long and decorated career. This is his first WSOP in-the-money finish. Final table action starts at 2pm today.

• The second event on the WSOP APAC schedule kicked-off yesterday with 172 players chasing the $1650 Pot Limit Omaha title. By day’s end, the field had been slashed to 29 and just 11 spots short of the money.

Another world-class field was in attendance but, appropriately, it was players from the near region who dominated the opening day. Andrew Gaw of the Philippines topped the chip count ahead of Sydney poker icon ‘Toothpick’ Tony Kambouroglou and New Zealander Phillip Willcocks.

Other big names back for day two included Daniel Shak, Marvin Rettenmaier, Bruno Portaro, Tino Lechich, Joe Hachem, Sam Trickett, Jim Collopy and Jeff Lisandro. Play resumes at noon today.
