APPT Sydney: The Rich Are Getting Richer

By Heath Cram

APPT Sydney Preliminary Event 1 Winner Henry Sun has been eliminated by one of the tournament big stacks Carter Gill. After winning a substantial pot with a full house, Gill is stalking the chip leaders and is coloring up to have about 280k in chips.

Fourth in chips at the start of Day 2 was inform Canadian PokerStars player Terrence Chan who is certainly running very well and will prove a force to be reckoned with. Chan has just under 300k in chips and with 93 players remaining will definitely benefit from the progression to 90 players and gradual move to 8-handed poker once we have 80 runners left.

APPT Sydney: Terence Chan

Chan could be considered one of the better short-handed players in the field, winning his only event in Australia, the $1600 “six-handed” preliminary event to the APPT Grand Final. Chan was then very impressive on day 1 in the Main Event. The highlight in Chan’s career would have to be his effort to finish a runner-up at this year’s 2007 WSOP 6-handed event, earning himself a cool US $287,345.

With the approaching decrease to 8-handed, Chan is expected to go very deep, and If he finds himself 6-handed on the final table… look out!
