Aaron Lim Last Aussie Standing At The Partouche Poker Tour Main Event

Posted at 19:07 2012-09-07 by Matthew Pitt

With all of the negativity surrounding the Partouche Poker Tour Main Event in Cannes it is easy to forget that a major poker tournament is in progress that has €1,000,000 first place prize. One man who will no doubt be completely focussed on getting his hands on the massive payout is Aaron Lim, who has made it through to Day 4 of this controversial tournament.

Before play got under way there was an announcement that this would be the last-ever Partouche Poker Tour, something many players will welcome after this week's saga. But as soon as the toys that had been thrown from Patrick Partouche's pram had been cleared away the players got right back down to business.

By the time the curtain came down on another day's play there were just 46 players remaining in the field, each of them knowing they had made it into the money places. Lim was the only Australian player to have chips left – 243,000 of them – and when he takes his seat over on Table 1 later today he will do so safe in the knowledge he has locked up a cash of at least €17,050 (AUD$20,900).

As far as table draws go Lim cannot be too disappointed with where he will be sitting as there are no real big names to give him trouble. Azerbaijan's Ramin Hajiyev is a talented individual but Lim must fancy his chances of making it through to Day 5.

The man everyone has to catch is Ole Scemion who ended the night with a massive stack of 1,251,000 and was the only player to pass through the magical one million chip barrier. Hot on Scemion's heels is Karen Sarkisyan (957,000) whilst Paul Tedeschi (798,500) and Fabrice Touil (760,000) head the chasing pack.
