Jae Kyung Sim Wins PokerStars APPT Cebu

Tags: appt cebu, Jae Kyung Sim, PokerStars Asia-Pacific Poker Tour
Posted on 06 May 2013 by "T".

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!

Posted on 12 November 2009 by "T".

Day 1a of PokerStars Asia Pacific Poker Tour kicked off yesterday. 105 players came to start, and after seven one-hour levels of poker, 50 of them had made it through to Day 2 of the tournament. In the lead of the tournament is Terry Fan with 140,000 chips. Terry doubled-up at the early stages of the tournament and used his big stack very well as he remained in the top throughout the day.

Day 2b of the tournament attracted a much more interesting starting field than Day 1a, but unfortunately the most of the bigger names fell early including Eric Assadourian, Dennis Huntly, and Aaron Benton. 58 players made it to Day 2 from Day 1b. Now a total of 108 players will fight for the prize pool of around $600,000.
