After winning the latest Macau Cup main event, Poker Stars Team Asia pro Celina Lin has taken the top spot on the Macau Cup leaderboard for both tournament points and winnings.

The latest Macau Cup main event drew its largest ever field of 168 players, making for a prizepool worth $1.6 million.

Although Lin started heads-up play with a 2-1 chip disadvantage, she was able to fight back, causing nine changes in the chip lead over the four-hour heads-up session.

In the end Lin defeated "Sammy" Xiuming Huang, spiking a king after getting it all in with her K9 versus Sammy's 99. This main event victory marks the largest cash prize in Lin's career taking home nearly HKD $400k.

Not only is Lin leading this year's Poker Cup leaderboard, but her recent win gives her four final table appearances for the season, giving her a record nine final tables in Macau Cup events.

The top MPC leaderboard finishers will win seats to compete for a HKD $100k package against Lin and her fellow Red Dragon Champion team members in the Tournament of Champions.

The Tournament of Champions is scheduled to take place just prior to the Macau Poker Cup Championships in December of 2009.
