Time to Play Down To Nine

Waterfront Hotel and Casino, APPT Cebu
Waterfront Hotel and Casino, APPT Cebu

Welcome poker fans, to the Waterfront Hotel and Casino for the penultimate day of play here at the 2012 Asia Pacific Poker Tour Cebu Main Event.

There will be 28 players heading to the felt today with stars in their eyes, but by the end of the day 19 of those will have been sent crashing to the rail as we play down to the final table. While all 28 players are now guaranteed some cash for their time, it is the PHP 5,927,000 first place prize that all the players will be eying off.

One player who is in the best shape to ensure all his poker dreams come true is India's Amit Varma. A huge Day 2 ensured Varma would finish up as the chip leader, and when we say "leader" we really mean it. Varma begins the day with 545,500 which is 200,000 more chips than his nearest rival, Hoang An Do.

Close behind Do and in with a chance come clutch time are the likes of Jacky Wang, Nicholas Wong, Xue Bin Pang and Alistair Duff. Don't rule out the talent of Julian Hasse, Michael Kanaan, Antoine Amourette and Carter Gill as they have all tasted success on the felt at a very high level before.

All in all it's going to be a huge day of poker, so strap yourself in and follow along with all the action as the PokerNews Live Reporting Team is on the floor from 12:15 pm local time and then all day long here on Day 3 of APPT Cebu.

Time to Go

Nível 14 : 1,500/3,000, 500 ante

The cards are now being dealt! There was around 15 minutes left on Level 14 last night, so we will be playing out the remainder of that level before kicking on with regular hour-long levels. The plan is to play down to a final table. It's hard to tell how long that will take at this point, but somewhere in the range of 6-7 levels.

Zhang First Out

Our first elimination of the day is Filipino local Mark Anthony Ortiz. He came into today as the second shortest stack of the field and looked to double up with {a-Clubs}{7-Spades} but he ran smack into the {a-Hearts}{a-Spades} of Bobby Zhang.

The board ran out {6-Spades}{2-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} to leave Ortiz the first to visit the cashier and a PHP153,510 pay day.

Kuo Claws To Life

Kitty Kuo returned today as the only female still in contention to take down the title and she has managed to take one closer step to doing just that by picking up an early double.

It all started when Kuo opened it up to 6,500 from the under the gun. The action was then sent flying around to Michael Kanaan who three-bet to 15,000. With the play back on Kuo, she would jam for her around 35,000-chip stack. Kanaan made the call and the two turned their hands over.

Kanaan: {9-}{9-}
Kuo: {a-}{a-}

The board ran out with no danger for Kuo as she took down the handy double.
