The ACOP Platinum Series XIII concluded on April 24 at the ‘PokerStars LIVE Macau’ poker room, awarding more than HK $2.6 million in prize money, across seven events to an accumulative entry-crowd of 782 players.
The highlight buy-in Main Event was won by China’s Zhi Lin (cover image) for HK $258,810. The event drew 239 runners, leading to a prize pool of HK $1,078,010.
