APPT Cebu Day 3 – Jim Collopy Heads The Final Table

shutterstock_37627897Day 3 of the Asia Pacific Poker Tour Cebu was played out a couple of hours ago with the remaining 25 players that had performed to a high enough to see the penultimate day trimmed down even further to the final table of nine.

It is no real surprise that the man that has managed to push himself to the top of the chip counts is the Australian pro Jim Collopy. He has been near the top the whole event and is in great form after bagging a WSOP APAC bracelet not so long ago.

He currently sits on 605,000 chips which gives him about an 80k advantage over Hyunshik Yun in second place with 528,000. Other names on the final table include the chip leader coming into the day Daniel Spence, Andrew Nguyen and Anthony John Wright.

Over In A Flash!

The day actually went by at warp speed with it lasting less than six levels before that final table of nine was established. Whether the final table will be contested at such pace however is another matter. It looks a fairly stacked table with only a couple of players that look in real trouble.

Gurang And Kaigorodtcev The Bubble Boy’s!

If the name Milan Gurang is ringing some bells with you, it might be because he was the chip leader of the event on Day 1b. Despite that early dominance Gurang didn’t quite have enough to make the money having fallen at the sword of Jim Collopy one place short.

With regards to the final table bubble however, Kaigorodtcev was at least guaranteed a payout, yet he would still have been immensely disappointed to have missed out on that final nine by just one place.

The Final Table Seating And Chip Counts!

St 1 – Sim Jaekyung – 371,000

St 2 – Hyunshik Yun – 528,000

St 3 – Anthony John Wright – 412,000

St 4 – Michael Allmrodt – 34,000

St 5 – Daniel Spence – 450,000

St 6 – Magnus Karlsson – 221,000

St 7 – James Collopy – 605,000

St 8 – Andrew Nguyen – 316,000

St 9 – Timo Kohijoki – 148,000

This means we have just one more report to bring you, with it announcing the winner of the event tomorrow. Can Jim Collopy secure another title in such a short time from his last? We certainly wouldn’t bet against him considering he is the biggest name left in this event.
