China’s Yunsheng Sun wins WPT Cambodia Kickoff Event

by Team Gutshot Posted on 18 Nov, 2019

The first tournament attracted 212 players, each entering for a buy-in of $440. Battling this field, only 27 advanced to play further on Day 2. A prize pool of $84,799 was created and the top players received a paycheck. The field further narrowed down to final 3. At one stage, Lai Heng Foo held Qd Qs, Sun Ad 5d and Michael Wood Ad 5d. It was an incredible night for Sun as the board was in favour of diamonds, giving him an opportunity to shine with his flush and eliminate Wood in 3rd place.

5 intense hours is how long heads-up went on for. Foo tried to take the lead once, doubled-up twice but his efforts did not last long. Eventually, Sun lifted the trophy, pocketing $19,983 in prize money and pushing the former to the runner-up position. 

It was just yesterday that Dhaval Mudgal finished 3rd in the APT Vietnam Championships Event. Indian participants keep moving from one location to the other, covering each corner of the globe. Day 2 saw 3 Indians in contention and all three of them cashed including Rajneesh Katoch (8th), Raju Jaruplavath (9th) and Paawan Bansal (20th for $987).

  1. Yunsheng Sun – $19,983
