By Heath Cram

APPT Sydney 2007: Rabii Maatouk
Maatouk got his last 200+k in with Ace-King suited and was relieved to get a call from table big stack, PokerStars qualifier Jeremiah Vinsent who turned over King-Jack offsuit.
Maatouk looked good until the river with the board filling out Qs 3h 5h 9c and a horrendous Jack of hearts on the river. Maatouk pocketed $23,020 AUD for his effort.
The big survivor this level has been Gary Diamond. Diamond has nursed a stack of under 100k for half an hour, including a double-up and is now guaranteed a minimum of $34,530 AUD that is paid out for places 12th to 10th.

- Sol Bergren 2.2 million (PokerStars Qualifier)
