With the year drawing to a close and Christmas upon us, it's time to look back at one of the biggest tours in the Asia Pacific - the Asian Poker Tour (APT) - to see who were the big winners in 2012.
The overall champion has to be England's Sam Razavi, who sealed the APT Player of the Year (POY) title after winning the Main Event in Goa at the beginning of December.
And the runner up in the hunt for the POY crown was Sweden's Martin Nilsson, who also has a Main Event win to his name in 2012 - one which he picked up back in May.
Australian poker players didn't have a huge amount of luck on the APT, and while Liam Anderson was leading the POY race at one point, he failed to make his advantage tell come the end of the year.
Other winners include South Africa's Divan Le Roux - who won a title in the Philippines in April - and Carlos Chang of Taiwan, who secured an APT title in Macau during July.
