Dinh Le - 2007 APPT Macau Main Event Champion
Vietnamese born Dinh Le has just earned himself a spot in poker's history books, having won the first ever major international poker tournament held on Chinese soil. Now the guy who once said, "It's hard to make me smile" has $222,640 reasons to do just that.

Congratulations to both Le and runner-up Ivan Tan on a job well done!

We'll be back tomorrow at 12:00 noon local time for Day 1 of the PokerStars.net APPT Macau High Rollers Event, a $15,000 buy-in no-limit hold'em tournament. Some big names have already committed to playing the event, including Barry Greenstein, Scotty Nguyen, Kirk Morrison and John Juanda. We hope you'll join us tomorrow for more live updates, photos and videos direct from the tournament floor here at the Grand Waldo Hotel & Casino in Macau.

Until then, good luck and good night!
