A Look Back at the Side Event Winners from the 2013 APPT Macau ACOP 0001

The second annual Asia Championship of Poker (ACOP) has been playing out in Macau at PokerStars LIVE at the City of Dreams for the past couple weeks. The 17-day festival was comprised of 12 official ACOP events with the flagship event being the HK$100,000 buy-in ACOP Main Event – which you can follow by clicking here. This weekend you will also be able to follow live coverage from the HK$250,000 High Roller.

The 2013 ACOP is part of Season 7 of the Asia-Pacific Poker Tour and has already produced some notable winners. For instance, Jian Yang won the HK$25,000 Warm-Up Event for a big payday of HK$1,700,000, while the HK$8,800 Ladies Asia Championship saw well-known female professional Jay Tan from Hong Kong capture her first live title and along with a HK$65,200 first-place prize.

While all the focus have been on the stop’s higher buy-in events, there have been numerous tournaments playing out at PokerStars LIVE at the City of Dreams. Here’s a look at the results from those events.
