Andrew Kim

The 2012 Asian Pacific Poker Tour Seoul Main Event has come to an end. Andrew Kim, from the USA, emerged victorious over the 268-player field. After a deal was made, Kim earned KRW145,000,000 for the win.

When the third and final day began, 16 players remained. After a few hours of play, the field was down to nine and the final table was set. Things had moved along steadily for the first part of the day and the first elimination at the final table was 2012 Aussie Millions runner-up Kenneth Wong.

During Level 21 with the blinds at 8,000/16,000/2,000, Wong was all in preflop with {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds} versus Vincent Rubianes’ {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}. The flop, turn and river ran out {J-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{4-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}, and Rubianes sent Wong out the door in ninth place.

He was followed out the door by start-of-the-day chip leader Daisuke Endo, who fell at the hands of Germany’s Moritz Ortmann. Somehow, someway, Ortmann and Endo got all the money in on the {10-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{4-Spades} flop with Moritz holding {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs} to Endo’s {J-Spades}{3-Clubs}. The turn was the {A-Diamonds} and the river the {7-Clubs}. Ortmann finished with a flush and Endo held just jack high, which meant he was headed out the door in eighth place.

After Endo’s elimination, Taewook Kwon fell in seventh and then Jose Severino in sixth. Severino went out during Level 23 with the blinds at 12,000/24,000/4,000.
