Phil Ivey Out at APPT Macau

It was down to 304 players at the APPT Macau.  One of those who got sent packing was none other than professional poker phenom Phil Ivey, who made his first public appearance in months.  Ivey was one of over a dozen individuals who represented the now defunct online poker room, Full Tilt Poker.  That company is yet to pay back US players since April 15 and those worldwide since the end of June. 

Two-time World Series of Poker Main Event champion Johnny Chan surged to the top half of the leaderboard after Day 2 while Singapore native Nathaniel Seet took over as chip leader earlier in the day and heading into Day 3.  He had amassed a tournament-best 774,500 chips. 


Nathaniel Seet - 774,500 
Danny Park - 478,100 
Wenfei Huang - 436,300 
Fabian Spiedelmann - 389,500 (PokerStars Qualifier) 
David Steicke - 372,400 (PokerStars Player) 
David Hrdlicka - 333,600 
Ligong Wei - 312,600 
Lance Richard Lee Yuen - 299,500 
Daniel Francis - 298,900 (PokerStars Player) 
Victorino Torres - 296,600 (PokerStars Player)
