No Limit Hold'em - APPT Main Event (Event #13)
Asia Pacific Poker Tour, Manila
Born in the Philippines, Florencio Campomanes is a poker pro who is quickly establishing himself as one of the best young players from his home country. He regularly participates in Asian tour events, and has a number of excellent results.
Campomanes first notched up a live tournament cash in November 2011, but had to wait until October 2013 before his first five figure cash. The APT Manila High Roller provided it, when Campomanes came very close to his first title, finishing 2nd for USD$25,856. The Macau Poker Cup in August the following year, provided him with a further noteworthy score, and a 1st place. He won a Holdem event for USD$25,793. Exactly one month later, he followed this up with 2nd in an APT High Roller event, adding another USD$21,105 to his bankroll in the process. 3rd place in an ACOP side event followed in October, good for another USD$10,010. In May 2015, Campomanes really hit the big time, banking his first six figure score. An APPT Main Event provided it, in the form of a 3rd place finish, and USD$119,444. In the next few months, Florencio Campomanes added over USD$13,000 for winning an APT High Roller, and over USD$21,000 for 2nd place in another APT High Roller. In a relatively short space of time, Florencio Campomanes has recorded a significant number of top 3 finishes, and seems to excel in High Roller events. He remains aforce to be reckoned with, both on the APT, and APPT.
