Andy Andrejevic wins ACOP Super High Roller for US$ 1.125 million

This just took over 4 levels of play to end the final table of Asia Championship of Poker 2015 HK$ 500000 Super High Roller.

When the dust had squared off, it was Andy Andrejevic, the Serbian-American player, standing as the winner. Andrejevic defeated John Juanda heads up to win the most wanted title as well as HK$ 8725000.
The final 6 poker players came back at 2:30 pm (local time) and all were already in the money as play ended on Day 2 following the bubble had burst. After 2 hours, three poker players had already bump off the rail.
Erik Seidel entered as the shortest stack and also was the first out. He propelled all in with ace-7, but Anton Astapau had ace-10, called, and took him out. Anton was out for fifteen minutes after he ran into Andrejevic and just could not survive in spite of flopping a set.

The very last player out before the break was the defending champ Steve O’Dwyer. In spite of starting the day 2nd in chips behind Andrejevic, he lost a huge chunk of his stack when he carried kings into Bryn Kenney’s aces. The rest went to Andy, with O’Dwyer’s king-queen joining worse than ace-10 after 5 cards, and the back-to-back run was over.
Kenney, Andrejevic and Juanda fought very hard for more than 2 hours without any elimination, and then 2 quick hands at the end of the fourth level saw Kenney depart.
