Simon Watt, the 26-year-old software developer from New Zealand came to be the last man standing after that he had defeated a field of 263 players in the Main Event of APPT Auckland. Simon Watt's final fight for the first prize of NZD$209,000 was against the fellow PokerStars qualifier Gerome Guitteau, and it didn't take long before the final hand was about to be played between these two.

Gerome decided to move all-in with KClub7Club pre-flop and Simon called with 5Heart5Club. Flop, turn and river didn't help Gerome's KClub7Club and Simon Watt took home the pot with his pair of 5's. Thanks to Simon Watt's win, the Main Event of APPT Auckland is once again won by someone from New Zealand.

qualifiers from these satellite events at pokerstars are doing pretty good in live tourneys, just a few weeks ago Aaron Gustavson won EPT London after qualifying through a satellite.

And only two europeans got to the final table... After all, looks like Tony Hachem didnt get to the payed places. I had my hopes on him to this but it went bad for him. Maybe next time.
