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 K[c]7[c] pre-flop and Simon called with 5[h]5[c]. Flop, turn and river didn't help Gerome's K[c]7[c] 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.
