APPT: The Frenchman Guitteau ends at the second place

After the last season of the Asia Poker Pacific Poker Tour (APPT), which let us remind in the passage is one of the biggest poker tournaments of Asia and the Pacific, the New Zealand stage of this tournament of this year was once again very enriching for French players. Three French people indeed made a beautiful performance by arriving in paid places during this meeting which was held in Auckland. Indeed, after Seoul, the new stage of the APPT took place in Sky City of Auckland. 263 players from all of the corners of the globe made the movement for this New Zealand stage. The 3,250 New Zealand dollars buy-in generated a consequent 789,000-New Zealand dollars prize pool. Jérôme Guitteau was the only French poker player who reaches the final table at the conclusion of three days of intense competition. His two other fellow countrymen, Arnaud Bulle and Louis Gabriel Mathieu, were on the other hand ranked at the thirtieth place.

But Jérôme Guitteau was not able to take down the final victory after the Heads-Up with the local player Simon Watt. The New Zealander Simon Watt seized the championship of Asia Pacific Poker Tour as well as the 209,000 New Zealand dollars of earnings. The Frenchman went however home with 142,020 New Zealand dollars in pocket. It thus seems that there is a real evolution of French poker players. After Thomas Bichon in Cyprus and recently Christophe Savari in Marrakech, another French people make speak about them in Auckland. For next November, it thus remains to see Antoine Saout's performance at the November Nine of the World Series of Poker (WSOP).
