WPT Prime Cambodia has crossed the halfway mark with Day 6 awarding four more players side event trophies. We have the results of the first three, the PLO results will be posted on the next recap. The biggest winner was Filipino Richard Marquez at the Mystery Bounty for roughly US$ 38K.
Over at the NLH Single Day, Duc Thanh Nguyen gave Vietnam its third win, and at the NLH Hyper Turbo, it was a clutch victory for Tyler Suansrakaew to put Thailand on the board. Also bagging up was the Super High Roller with 16 players remaining out of 51 entries. Australia’s Vincent Huang leads the race.
Richard Marquez wins the Mystery Bounty; Frank Lillis draws biggest bounty
On his second bullet, Richard Marquez rose above the 69 final day Mystery Bounty returnees to win his first solo WPT title. Marquez seized the US$ 33,385 top prize and 11 bounty rewards amounting to US 4,500 for a grand total US$ 37,885.
The battle for the title was determined at three-handed when the chip lead switched from Marquez to Australia’s Kiale Matthews, and Hong Kong’s Kong Fung. Matthews looked to be in fine shape to ship it with two prior final table finishes, but was ultimately stopped by Marquez with top two pair over a missed draw.
