We have been continuously following the 2018 APPT (Asia Pacific Poker Tour) Macau tournament series that was scheduled between 14th and 25th March 2018. The opening event was won by Ho Lun Pang for HKD 265,600 and the stakes kept getting higher after that.
Female poker pro Kristen Bicknell won the APPT Macau High Roller and it was a huge achievement by her. Incidentally, it was her boyfriend Alex Foxen who won the APPT Super High Roller not too long later, and this poker couple is definitely walking away from Macau a lot richer.
