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.

After coming into the day with the chip lead, Kim Gap Young lost it at times to fellow Korean Young-shin Im and Jukka Juvonen before snatching it back with some aggressive play and late-session eliminations.
Daren Yoon (677,000), Mikael Rosen (670,000) and Im (639,000) are Young's closest rivals while Fabiano Michael (231,000) and Richard En (198,000) are also in contention as the final nine battle it out for the following payouts.

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.
The board ran out to see Seet eliminated in 10th place while Yoon soars to nearly 600,000 in chips as play ends for the night!
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.
The flop of kept Tan in the lead, but when the 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 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.
