APAT March Turbo Championship Final Table Results
Two events took place on the evening of March 26; the $33 buy-in APAT March Turbo Championship being one of those tournament. Eighty-nine players bought in for $33 and it was Austria’s Sandro Zarriello who outlasted them all and who secured the $790.26 top prize.
Zarriello defeated German grinder Michael Kosmis heads-up, resigning the runner-up to a $509.86 consolation prize.
Earlier at the final table, Tony Meuer of Germany fell in seventh place and banked $123.99. Edi Paul Neascu and Simon Schmid followed suit, before Dean Pearson saw his tournament end in a fourth place finish. John Bonadies busted in third to leave Meuer and Zarriello heads-up, with the latter getting the job done and scooping the lion’s share of the prize pool.

APAT March PLO8 Championship Final Table Results
Sixty-six players bought into the $33 APAT March PLO8 Championship, which had an added twist in that the tournament had a PKO format. PLO8 is a crazy game at the best of time, but with bounties in place it became something else.
Paul McTaggart was the last man standing in this event after he busted Brazilian sensation Bruno Arruda heads-up. McTaggart’s first-place prize was worth $231.39 with second-place weighing in at $231.13. The bounty payments made all the difference, however, because while Arruda’s haul was bolstered by $170.15, McTaggart’s haul increased by $339.19, more than he collected for winning the tournament!
|1||Paul McTaggart||United Kingdom||$231.39||$339.19|
|3||Richard Rudling-Smith||United Kingdom||$143.30||$84.37|
|5||John Burberry||United Kingdom||$68.63||$22.74|
|6||John Murray||United Kingdom||$53.97||$7.50|
