Jae Kyung Sim had a relatively small stack during both Day 1 and Day 2 of PokerStars Asia-Pacific Poker Tour Cebu main event. He remained anonymous (short stacked) during most of Day 3 as well and was down to 8 big blinds on the money bubble. However, at the end of the day, he began operating at a faster peace and took down a few well-sized pots to eventually progress to the final table - for the second year in a row!
That's right! Sim made it to this very same event's final table last year and finished in 8th place. This time, however, he played outstanding poker and, believe it or not, eliminated 6 of 8 opponents to lay hands on the top prize of 3,948,00 PHP (about $96,000) - the biggest tournament cash of his career!
