It took just over four levels of play to wrap up the final table of 2015 Asia Championship of Poker HK$500, 000 Super High Roller, and when the dust had settled, it was Serbian-American player Andy Andrejevic standing victorious. Andrejevic beat John Juanda heads up to win the coveted title and HK$8, 725, 000 (approx. $1, 125, 000).
The final six players returned at 2:30 p.m local time and all were already in the money as play finished on Day 2 after the bubble had burst. Two hours later, three players had already hit the rail.
Erik Seidel came in as the shortest stack and was the first out. He moved all in with ace-seven, but Anton Astapau had ace-ten, called, and took him out.
Astapau himself was out 15 minutes later after when he ran into Andrejevic and couldn’t survive despite flopping a set.
The last player out before the break was reigning champion Steve O’Dwyer. Despite beginning the day second in chips behind Andrejevic, he lost a big chunk of his stack when he ran kings into Bryn Kenney’s aces. The rest went to Andrejevic, with O’Dwyer’s king-queen fairing worse than ace-ten after five cards, and the back-to-back run was over.
