With proceedings now underway at the Asian Poker Tour (APT) in Manila, Australia's Liam Anderson has got off to a promising start with a seventh place finish in the 10-6-4 event.
Following his impressive performance, the Aussie has now climbed to the top of the standings in the race for the APT Player of the Year (POY), leapfrogging England's Sam Razavi to claim the number one spot.
But despite Anderson moving into first place, Razavi says that there is still all to play for in Manila.
"It was a good start by Liam but this is a very busy event schedule this week and I have plenty of time to take back the lead."
And with the Main Event set to start tomorrow (September 22nd), Anderson will have to be on his game if he's going to hold onto the lead before the APT stops in Cambodia and India later this year.
