APPT Cebu: Martins raises the bar on Day 1b
With bleary-eyed poker travellers starting to slowly filter into The Philippines we were expecting a larger turnout for today's second flight of the APPT Cebu Main Event. And that's what we got. After a slow start we found ourselves with an official field of 76 runners today, comprising mostly of locals from the Asian region. The APPT has come a long way from the early seasons with nearly 80% of today's field based in Asia or with Asian heritage which is fantastic to see. The game of poker is starting to develop some strong roots in Asia, which will no doubt continue to bloom in the years to come.
