The PokerStars Asia Pacific Championship of Online Poker is now in full flight as some of the mixed events are giving players an opportunity to fully test their skills against the best in the Asia-Pacific region.
Last night was Event #5 of the series with the $22 No Limit Holdem Heads-Up Event attracting a field of 269 players to create a prize pool of $5,380.
There were many notables in attendance with the field highlighted by 2005 World Champion and Team PokerStars Pro Joe Hachem. He was joined by PokerStars Team Asia Pro Bryan Huang as well as Julian Cohen, Mishel Anunu, Jesse McKenzie, Brett Chalhoub, Danny Green, APCOOP Event #4 winner “kbp00” as well as WCOOP winner Romes ‘ROMES_HOME’ Priplotski.
Unfortunately none of these would go deep with Priplotski (63rd $21.52), Huang (54th $21.52) sneaking into the money while Cohen (25th $43.04) lasted one round further.
Again it was another long haul for the final competitors as it took until 6am AEDST for a champion to be crowned as Melbourne’s “Kell Hawk222” outlasted them all to claim the title and $1,345 in prize money, defeating “ausrabbit” in the final heads-up match.
The PokerStars APCOOP series continues to offer players exceptional structures for a low buy-in to give recreational players an opportunity to enjoy Championship online poker.
We’re not even half way through the APCOOP with another six events still on the schedule, culminating in the $215 No Limit Holdem Main Event on Sunday which offers a $50,000 prize pool guarantee. Before that, you can dig your teeth into the $33 Mixed Holdem 6-Handed Event which kicks off at 8pm this evening.
With the APCOOP now underway there is no better time than now to download PokerStars and use PokerStars Bonus Code ‘STARS600’ to enjoy a monster first deposit bonus of 100% up to $600.
