Carlos Chang Crowned APT Macau Main Event Champion

Posted at 14:50 2012-08-02 by Matthew Pitt

The Asian Poker Tour (APT) Macau Main Event is done and dusted after its champion was crowned. A bumper field of 268 players exchanged HKD $25,000 for the chance to become an APT champion but only one of them would leave Macau with that title. Step forward Carlos Chang.

Chang bested a talented final table to get his hands on the coveted APT Macau Main Event trophy and the huge HKD $1,913,200 (AUD $234,682) first place prize money. Amongst the 10 final table members were a British duo in Sam Razavi and Tom Alner whilst Aaron Lim was Australia's sole representative.

Chang's heads-up opponent was Winfred Yu, a man who is no stranger to the APT having reached the final table of this very event back in 2009. Chang eventually proved too much for Yu, and Chang brushed him aside to ensure he would be heading back to Taiwan much, much richer than when he left there for Macau.

The next stop on the APT calendar is the APT Asian Series Mauritius. Will Chang be there to attempt to win back-to-back titles? We do not have long to wait to find out.
