While the host country will be disappointed to have just one local player at the ME Final Table, Australia’s overall performance at this year’s World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific tournament series (WSOP APAC) has been exceptional. Australia has already won 5 bracelets from 8 events, with just two tournaments, the ME and the $25k High Roller, left to play.
The only other non-Australian players to have collected bracelets in Melbourne this year are Malaysia’s Junzhong Loo who won the AU$2,200 No-Limit Hold’em for $107,500, and Germany’s George Danzer who took down the $5k 8 Game Mixed Event for A$84,600.
