PokerStars Live Manila P1M Guarantee – Wang Ping Yuan takes the win

This event attracted 361 entries, creating a prize pool of PHP1,540,748 ($33,150). The organisers will be pleased with the prize pool as it represented a good turnout, comfortably exceeding the PHP1 million guarantee.

Of the starting field, just 56 survived the first day's play, with Soo Jo Kim carrying the chip lead into day 2, with 348,600. Of the players who returned for day 2, there was still plenty of work to be done, as only 36 places were paid. Soo Jo Kim managed to put his day 1 chip lead to good use, arriving at the final table with chips, and putting himself very much in contention. He did not manage to convert the opportunity into victory however, eventually finishing 5th. The day belonged to Wang Ping Yuan ultimately, who took down the event, and picked up the 1st prize of PHP332,648 ($7,157).

In May, PokerStars Live Manila will host the MANILA MEGASTACK 5. The festival will feature a PHP6M guarantee Main Event.
