Level 13 (blinds 1500-3000, ante 300)


Raymond Wu made a highly respectable showing in his APPT Macau Main Event debut

6.30pm: Wu left to wonder

Ivan Tan is up and cheering again after doubling through David Chiu. It was the Singaporean's K-Q against Chiu's K-10 - the queen played and Tan was up to 135,000, while Chiu slipped to about 180,000. Team Asia representation is down to two after Raymond Wu found himself all-in with A♥ [10h] against Daniel Hansson's A♦ K♥. The board fell 5♦ Q♠ J♠ [10d] J♦, hitting Wu but making a straight for the Swede, who improved to 250,000. Dan Schreiber holds 77,500 while Jonathan Lin is dangerously short-stacked with 24,000. There are 63 players remaining.

ElkY finished inside the top 70, but frustratingly short of the money

6.10pm: Jacko jolts ElkY to the exit

Just 72 players remain seated in the APPT Macau Main Event with more than two hours of play to go on day two. Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand ElkY Grospellier won't improve on his fifth-place finish in the 2007 APPT Macau Main Event after he pushed all-in with K♦ J♦. PokerStars Sponsored Player Wei Cheng "Jacko" Chiang made the call and tabled A♦ 7♦. It was a nasty board for ElkY, running out 9♦ 7♥ [10d] 7♠ [10h] to make a full-house for "Jacko".


Gutsy effort from Jonathan Lin today after shaking off a nasty bug in the past two days

6pm: T Hachem follows J Hachem to rail

It's been a forgettable start to level 13 for the Hachem family, with Team Australia pro Tony Hachem following his older brother Joe to the rail. The money went in on the flop of 9♣ A♦ K♥ with chip leader Kyle Cheong showing A♥ J♣ while Hachem held [10c] 9♣. The turn 5♠ and river J♥ ended the run of the ANZPT Player of the Year. That leaves Team Asia to lead the charge - Raymond Wu holds 73,500, Dan Schreiber is holding 85,000 while Jonathan Lin (20,000) is looking for a spot to make a move.
