The final table may have taken many hours to get to heads up but it was all business at the pointy end for David and Tetsuya. David held a 3:1 chip lead in the beginning but this was turned around when Tetsuya made a tough river call with a set of sixes.
The final hand David open shoved and Tetsuya called cards were tabled:
David Qd 5h
Tetsuya Ah 4c
The board ran out A Q 3 K 10 and Tetsuya takes the opening event out for XPF1,258,300
David will not walk away empty handed – he collects over XPF700,000 for his efforts.
Well played gents and congrats to the first ever APT Noumea champion!
