Randy “nanonoko” Lew Takes Macau By Storm

Randy “nanonoko” Lew Takes Macau By StormUS pro Randy “nanonoko” Lew has just won the 2011 APPT Macau Main Event, after defeating a field of 575 players over 5 days to lift the title, and collect the HK$3,772,000 (US$483,801) first place prize.
The PokerStars Team Online pro is a  multi-tabling prodigy who regularly plays up to 24 tables at the same time and has made Supernova Elite on PokerStars every year from 2007 to 2010.
Recently, however, the Vancouver based internet pro has turned his attention to the live arena and had notched up $123,281 in winnings over five cashes since June, 2010. That was until yesterday when the 26 year-old achieved his biggest score to date at the Casino Grand Lisboa in Macau, China.
As the final table of nine got underway, Randy Lew tweeted on his account:
“Final table of APPT Macau! Currently very short and 9th out of 9 players. I need the luck!”
Lew also profited from great determination and patience, and  eliminated Kai Yat Fam (Singapore) in 6th ($83,772) and Zuo Wang (China) in in 5th ($103,785) on his way to a final heads-up against Jimmy Pan (Macau).
At the start of heads-up Lew had roughly 9 million chips to Pan’s 8.25 million but in a swingy session dropped to 6 million chips before doubling back up holding pocket sixes to his opponent’s A-9.
A short while later and it was all over after Lew was dealt Q-10 to Pan’s K-Q with the flop falling Q-10-8. Lew lead out then called his opponent’s all-in, and with the 5 and J falling on the turn and river, Jimmy Pan was relegated to a runner-up finish worth $303,658.
Meanwhile, Randy “nanonoko” Lew was crowned the 2011 APPT Macau Champion, and tweeting his friends and fans yesterday wrote:
“I love you guys! Thanks everyone for the support & congrats!!! I was very happy with my play and even happier to win APPT Macau! Thank YOU!”
