APPT Sydney: Three down, four to go

By Sean Callander

We’re only four spots away from the settling the line-up for tomorrow’s APPT Grand Final at Star City.

With the blinds now at 12,000/24,000 (4000 ante), three players have bowed out since the redraw – Karib Karib in 16th, followed by Colin Ford (15th) and Mark Ericksen (14th).

Ford’s pockets kings looked well placed against the pocket 10s of Jeremiah Vinsant but the flop of Ad Ac 10c gave the Nashville youngster a full house and ended the New South Welshman’s tournament.

Mark Ericksen, the reigning Australian Two-Card Manila champion form the Gold Coast, has also left the tournament area after he was eliminated in 14th. With the board showing 9h 2h 4h, Ericksen moved all in holding pocket sevens but Bergren showed kings. Another king on the turn gave the Canadian a set, extending his chip lead, while Ericksen took home $23,020
