Tony G

Antanas "Tony G" Guoga was one of the final ten remaining players after play wound down to the final table in the Asian Poker Tour. He was second in the chip count and will compete for a $451,700 top prize Friday.

More than 370 players showed up in Singapore to compete in the Texas Hold'em main event of the Betfair Poker Asian Poker Tour. Antanas "Tony G" Guoga managed to outlast most of them so far including pros like Gus Hansen, Liz Lieu, Mel Judah, Thomas Bihl, John Phan and more.

Joining Guoga at the final table will be chip leader Samuel Lehtonen, Ang Pan Leng, Lee Nelson, Hans Vogl, Jeff Kimber, Brandon Walls, Mark Wheat, Neil Yong and Henrik Dahlgarrd.

"I am mainly worried about Lee Nelson," Guoga said. "He is a really strong player. He is a friend; I know him well. But these Singaporean players are really good too."

Nelson already has a major event win under his belt this year with a win at the Aussie Poker Millions in January. He's also cashed in a few smaller tournaments this year and won the Grosvenor World Masters in London in June.

The chip count for the final table is as follows:

  • Samuel Lehtonen - $897,500
  • Tony Guoga - $717,500
  • Ang Pang Leng - $209,000
  • Lee Nelson - $257,000
  • Hans Vogl - $250,500
  • Jeff Kimber - $240,000
  • Brandon Walls - $243,000
  • Mark Wheat - $101,000
  • Neil Yong - $98,500
  • Henrik Dahlgarrd - $74,000
