Sangeeth Mohan Eliminates Charles Lam
Charles Lam who was sitting on around 38,000 at the start of the hand opts to raise to 2,500 with the speculative Tc8c from the highjack finding callers in the form of Roman Grigoryev on the button and Sangeeth Mohan in the big blind.
Mohan checks the AcKs8d flop and with 9,800 in the middle just asking to be taken down Lam fires out a bet of 6,500 with his bottom pair. While Grigoryev steps out of the way Mohan looks like he has a piece of the flop and makes the call and we go heads-up to the Ts turn.
This is the gin card for Lam, giving him two pair and he moves all-in for his remaining 29,000 chips after Mohan checks. Mohan has Lam covered with a good 19,000 in chips to spare but does not look happy about this turn of events, though after thinking things over he eventually decides his As5s is good enough to make the call. The 5h river is a cruel one for Lam, giving Mohan Aces up to award him the sizable pot and move him up to 98,000 in chips and send a disappointed Lam crashing out of the tournament.

Speidel ends Day2 as the chiplead
Aussie Millions 2012 champion, Oliver Speidel is the current chip leader with 378,000 chips at the end of Day2 of the USD $2700 Main Event. The day saw a field of 137 players join the tables at Resorts World ManilaÂ’s Genting Club and 42 of those survived to make it to Day 3. Top 27 places are paid from this event.
After a shaky start Speidel was all-in and fighting for his tournament life against the flopped straight of
US pro Tommy Le, but hit running diamonds to make his backdoor flush and surge back into contention.
The Australian tournament specialist then powered into the chip lead in the second to last hand of the
day after finding himself on the right side of an Aces versus Kings confrontation against the unfortunate
Jordan Kaplan. While Kaplan was cruelly eliminated, Speidel snatched the chip lead and will return for
Day 3 with an impressive 378,000.
Hot on SpeidelÂ’s heels is KoreaÂ’s Han Wook Kim who, despite returning for Day 2 with a paltry 4,375,
enjoyed the rub of the green to finish the day with a respectable 318,000 in chips. Other players who
acquitted themselves admirably include the PhilippinesÂ’ Janno Alvarez (193,900), the USAÂ’s Binh Nguyen
(183,000), PortugalÂ’s Antonio Martins (177,600) and Sangeeth Mohan (41,700).
With a prize pool of USD $615,950 to contest and a whopping USD $197,000 on offer for first place.

Speidel heads towards the Final Table as the chip leader
Oliver Speidel has once more asserted his supremacy on the USD $2700 APT Philippines Main Event as he ended the Day3 as the chip leader. The day went on track with the remaining 42 players from the 254 that registered for the event, and the day was wrapped up when the final table of 10 players was decided.
Oliver Speidel ends Day3 as the chip leadder
The APT Philippines Main Event has had a Filipino champion for the last three years running in the form of 2009’s Neil Arce, 2010’s Michael Cua and 2011’s Enrique Del Prado Jr but, with only one Filipino left in the field in the form of Nicandro Filart on 224,000 in chips, the chances of the trophy remaining on home soil appear slim. Former champion Cua made a fantastic run today at snaring another title but could only finish in 18th place.
The APT Philippines 2012 Final Table:
Seat 1: David Steicke (Hong Kong) 144,000

Le Roux crowned APT Philippines Champion
South African Divan Le Roux is finnaly victorious after 4 days of play in the APT Philippines USD $2700 Main Event at Resorts World ManilaÂ’s Genting Club. Le Roux conquered the 254 player field to claim USD $197,000 in prize money. He defeated his fellow country-man Conrad Coetzer in a thrilling heads up contest.
Divan Le Roux: APT Philippines Champion
The final table started with overnight chip leader Oliver Speidel doing most of the work and eliminating several players in the form of Adam Monaghan, David Steicke and Antonio Martins. Le Roux then busted GuamÂ’s Franklin Acfalle before Speidel went on to end the three-year dominance of Filipino players on the APT Philippines title when he railed the home countryÂ’s last hope of Nicandro Filart in 6th place.
However, after Han Wook Kim exited in 5th place, SpeidelÂ’s reign of terror on the final table was ended when his A♥ J♠ lost against Conrad CoetzerÂ’s 6♥ 6♠ and was crippled down to just 25,000 chips before Divan Le Roux administered the final blow.
With ChinaÂ’s Ryan HongÂ’s departure in 3rd, the two South Africans entered heads up with Le Roux as the shorter stack on 1.44 million against CoetzerÂ’s 2.37 million. The lead swung back and forth several times before the final hand where Le Roux went allin with A♥ J♦ and CoetzerÂ’s called at the risk of his tournament life with Q♦ 9♥, the board flipped J♦ 8♣ 6♦ 7♣ 4♥ to give the title to Divan Le Roux.
Final table payouts:
1st Divan Le Roux USD $197,000
2nd Conrad Coetzer USD $104,000
