APPT Macau Latest: PLO Heroics for Leon Li-Ta Hsu and HK$50K Freezeout

Event 6 – PLO Single Re-entry

The APPT Macau offers a great variety of events each year, and the PLO event has always attracted a good sized field. The buy in this year was set at HK$5,000 with 103 players buying in. This ensured a prize pool which reached HK$449,595 ($57,800). Last year’s PLO event was all about Leon Li-Ta Hsu as he stormed to victory, and remarkably, a very similar story emerged here. Once again he decimated the field and won the event, taking home HK$119,145 ($15,342) for his excellent showing.
