APPT Auckland: The late movers
By James Potter and Eliot James
Amant Nauhria considers himself a local Aucklander who is from India. What he most certainly is at the moment is the chip leader of the Pokerstars.net APPT Auckland SkyCity Festival of Poker Main Event. He currently has 94K in chips and is terrorizing his table. Unless something goes wrong he will be the man they are chasing tomorrow.
Zane Kopua is a proud local from the West Auckland suburb of Ranui. He has been quiet all day but has found himself in a very strong position with nearly 50K in chips. He is deep in concentration and will have plenty of local support tomorrow.
Matt Cheer is another one who leads the local charge and was described to us as a 'SkyCity Pro'. He laughed at the suggestion but he is certainly showing plenty of skill at the felt and is also just under the 50K mark with under 30 minutes of play left today.
