After just over six levels of play, the final table of the PokerStars.net Asia Pacific Poker Tour Cebu Main Event has been set with Kim Gap Young holding onto the overnight chip lead for the second consecutive day!

Starting the day with thirty-five players, action was fast and furious as we quickly reached the money just after an hour of play. Although we hit a slight stall in action at several points, there were times when eliminations occurred at a frantic flurry.

Inwook Choi (27th), Andrew Hinrichsen (24th), Alexander Beeckx (15th), Paul Foltyn (13th), Roger Spets (12th), Ivan Tan (11th) and Nathaneel Seet (10th) all fell to the rail just shy of the final table of nine.

Nathaneel Seet Eliminated in 10th Place (PHP 323,000)

Nathaneel Seet - 10th place
Nathaneel Seet - 10th place

Daren Yoon opened with a raise only to have Nathaneel Seet move all in. Yoon made the call to put Seet at risk of becoming the final table bubble boy.

Seet: {A-Clubs}{9-Spades}
Yoon: {J-Clubs}{J-Spades}

The board ran out {2-Spades}{6-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{K-Spades} to see Seet eliminated in 10th place while Yoon soars to nearly 600,000 in chips as play ends for the night!

Ivan Tan Eliminated in 11th Place (PHP 323,000)

Ivan Tan - 11th place
Ivan Tan - 11th place

Ivan Tan moved roughly his last 200,000 all in from the cutoff only to have Kim Gap Young move all in from the small blind to force the big blind out.

Tan: {5-Hearts}{5-Spades}
Young: {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}

The flop of {K-Spades}{8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} kept Tan in the lead, but when the {A-Clubs} landed on the turn, he would need to spike one of the two remaining fives in the deck to stay alive.

Unfortunately for the Singaporean, the {4-Hearts} landed on the river to end his tournament in 11th place for a PHP 323,000 payday as Young becomes the first player to soar over the seven-figure mark; Young now sits with 1,130,000 in chips.

Rosen Calls Down Lapitan

Posted 2010-11-15 GMT+8

Raymond Lapitan opened to 27,000 from the cutoff and Mikael Rosen defended his big blind to see a {K-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} flop fall.

Rosen check-called 34,000 to see the {A-Spades} land on the turn and a bet of 50,000 follow from Lapitan. Again Rosen made the call to see the {7-Hearts} spike on the river and Lapitan fire a third-bullet of 75,000 with Rosen once again check-calling.

Lapitan tabled his {Q-Clubs}{9-Hearts} for air to see Rosen's {K-Spades}{Q-Spades} collect him the pot to shoot him up to 680,000 as Lapitan slips to 180,000.

As Rosen raked in the chips, he turned to our PokerNews field reporter and uttered, "I am going to win this!"

Roger Spets Eliminated in 12th Place (PHP 323,000)

Roger Spets - 12th place
Roger Spets - 12th place

Young-shin Im limped in before Roger Spets moved all in for 115,000 from the cutoff.

Raymond Lapitan snap-called from the button as Im kicked her cards into the muck.

Spets: {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}
Lapitan: {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}

The {A-Spades}{10-Spades}{8-Hearts} flop saw Spets still drawing to his kicker, and when the {7-Clubs} and {7-Spades} landed on the turn and river, Spets was forced to exit in 12th place for a PHP 323,000 payday as Lapitan climbs to 370,000 in chips.
