Winner in Manila

MegaStack events can’t compare with EPTs for size, but they still bring their own drama to the front page of this blog.

The latest incarnation ended in Manila yesterday, won by Yasutake Oka. He won a first prize of ₱2,562,000, as well as an APPT Manila package worth ₱100,000.

Aleeyah Jadavji on way to PSPC

Away from results, you can also ready about Aleeyah Javadji.

Her name might not be too familiar, but to those of us who circulate among the poker media, the opposite is true.

As is the reason why she won a Platinum Pass last week.

Read her story here, and then we dare you not to root for her at the PSPC next month.
