| Tom Alner was down to just 8,000 in chips on Day 2, and managed to survive in a tough spot with the aggressive Brian Yip splashing around to his right. Once that danger had subsided, Alner opened up his game, and with a little luck, was able to come away with the win. |

| He did really good, i guess he participated since it was related to Pokerstars.|
As net value there are much bigger games there but i guess this is a good step in making the poker action from there more visible.

| Never heard of the guy before,...but then again, I would bet that he's never heard of ME before either... |
By the time he pays his bar tab for the room and a few hours with a petite Asian call girl or 2,...that cash will all be gone...
Actually,...not a bad take for a few hours of Poker. It would take me a few years to earn that much cash!

| Macau is fast becoming the Poker capital of the world overtaking Vegas. The big money cash games i keep reading about all seem to happen in Macau. Never heard of the place until about 5 years ago.|
