APPT Manila: Final Table Update, Round 25
It's often said that to win a major poker tournament, you require skill and luck. To win the 2008 APPT Manilla tournament, you also need a heathy dose of endurance. It's now almost 4am local time, with the final table players battling for almost 15 hours. Both heads up players are aware of the stakes on offer - over 7million pesos.
There is very little betting on the flop, with players seeking to gain a better grasp of the hand on the turn. This is slowly becoming an arm wrestle of epic proportions as the two players continue to slug it out, hand after hand, pot after pot.
