Edward Sabat Wins APPT Macau

by Poker Team

The PokerStars Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) broke new ground and signaled a new era in the Asian gambling arena. With 538 participants and an impressive prize pool of $12,643,000 HKD ($1,62 million), the second season of the APPT Macau was a record breaking success. The 2008 APPT Macau is the largest poker tournament held in Asia to date with 15% of the entrants hailing from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan or Macau.

The final table saw big action throughout the day from the international group of players. The days chip leader, Eddie Sabat, started off from a strong position but endured several ups and downs. As the day went on players were eliminated one by one until the last two men were standing, Eddie Sabat of the US and Charles Chua of Malaysia. As the chip lead switched between the players several times before the deciding final hand was played.

Chua opened the hand for 150,000. Sabat called and the flop showed 6c-Qd-6d. He checked, Chua bet 275,000, Sabat then check raised to 550,000 causing Chua to push all in to which Sabat called. Sabat revealed Kd-Jd for a flush draw and Chua showed Qs-3c, giving him two pair. Ac came on the turn which brought more outs but the 2d on the river guaranteed Sabat’s victory.

By taking down the win at the final table, Eddie is the youngest player to ever make the final table. He was taught poker by his brother who is in medical school. The PokerStars qualifier has had some impressive results over the past 12 months, including third in the WSOP Circuit Series event at Harrah’s Rincon in San Diego, worth $70,680 USD in February. He also added a cash finish to his resume in the LAPT event in Brazil last month and finished in the money twice at the 2008 WSOP. Though the 22 year old recently completed his studies to become an accountant at USC, he considers his new classroom to be the Commerce Casino in Los Angeles where he’s a regular in the cash games.
