Early WSOP APAC Results: Events 1-4

On Thursday the inaugural World Series of Poker Asia Pacific (WSOP APAPC) Main Event got underway, as the four preliminary events that preceded the Main Event wrapped-up with Aaron Lim winning the $5,000 No Limit Holdem tournament. The WSOP APAC started with a flourish, as over 1,000 players registered for the opening “Accumulator” tournament, and while attendance dipped the storylines continued, including Phil Ivey winning bracelet #9. In this column I’ll get you caught-up on all of the results from the first five tournaments of the WSOP APAC.

WSOP APAC Event #1: $1,100 Accumulator NLHE tournament

Event #1 was by far the most successful of the preliminary events, drawing a total of 1,085 entries over the three starting days of the “Accumulator” event. The tournament’s format allowed players to enter on all three starting days and combine their chip-stacks heading into Day 2. In the end it was poker pro Bryan Piccioli who would win the first bracelet in WSOP APAC history, besting Aussie native and fellow online poker pro Jonathan Karamilikis. Here is a look at the final table payouts from the event:

  1. Bryan Piccioli – $211,575
  2. Jonathan Karamalikis – $130,743
  3. Jay Loo – $96,305
  4. Jonathan Duhamel – $71,870
  5. Jeremy Ausmus – $54,337
  6. Graeme Putt – $41,610
  7. Iori Yogo – $32,268
  8. Peter Kleudgen – $25,335
  9. Ryan Otto – $20,138

WSOP APAC Event #2: $1,650 PLO tournament

Event #2 saw just 182 entrants for the $1,650 PLO event, but like Event #1 saw a stacked final table and an up-and-coming poker pro win his first bracelet. Here is a look at the final table payouts for Event #2:

  1. Jim Collopy – $69,662
  2. Edison Nguyen – $43,050
  3. Tino Lechich – $30,988
  4. Scott Reid – $22,712
  5. Dan Shak – $16,940
  6. Paul Sharbanee – $12,856
  7. Mike Leah – $9,923
  8. Martin Kozlov – $7,784
  9. Marvin Rettenmaier – $6,207

WSOP APAC Event #3: $2,200 Mixed Game tournament

This tournament will be remembered for two things: Phil Ivey winning his ninth WSOP bracelet and a pathetic turnout of just 81 players for a $2,200 buy-in event. Not only did the tournament end with a Phil Ivey victory, but the final table also included another superstar of poker in Daniel Negreanu, who finished in 4th place. Here is a look at the final table payouts from Event #3:

  1. Phil Ivey – $51,840
  2. Brandon Wong – $32,039
  3. Graeme Putt – $22,427
  4. Daniel Negreanu – $16,336
  5. Rob Campbell – $12,020
  6. Kevin Song – $8,978

WSOP APAC Event #4: $5k NLHE 6-Max tournament

167 players registered for the $5,000 buy-in No Limit Holdem 6-Max event at the WSOPAPAC, making Event #4 one of the better-attended events of the series up to this point. Despite a star-studded field the final table was definitely lacking in star-power but not in overall talent, with recent APPT Macau winner Aaron Lim winning his first major tournament.

Here is a look at the final table payouts from the tournament:

  1. Aaron Lim – $233,800
  2. Andy Lee – $144,530
  3. Jan Suchanek – $103,766
  4. Brendon Rubie – $74,590
  5. Sam Higgs – $53,615
  6. Billy Seri -$38,545
