Level 27, Blinds: 200K/400K, Ante 400K
The heads-up clash between underdog Sam Lam and Jun Obara was a short-lived one which lasted for only five hands. All of Obara’s chips went into the pot when he matched Lam’s all-in move preflop. Lam revealed A♦ J♣ against his opponent Obara’s K♠ Q♦ on a board of T♠ 6♥ 4♣ 6♠ 9♦. This gave both players 6-pair but Lam’s Ace kicker helped his sail safely to the top spot. We have a newly crowned APT Taipei 2023 Super High Roller winner in Lam. The title winner takes home TWD 3.99M (~USD $130K) in prize money. The runner-up Obara had a payday of TWD 2,701,100 (~$87,760).
