The 2012 Aussie Millions Main Event champion is enjoying a cracking start to this APT Philippines Main Event. After this hand, he sits on a 70,000 stack, which looks to give him the current chip lead in the tournament.

It began with Hong Kong’s David Steicke raising to 1000 preflop and the small blind three-betting to 5100. Speidel is in the big blind and wakes up with Q Q and makes it 35,200 to go. It has his opponents covered but neither back down and move all in.

Steicke’s 7 7 and the small blind’s 9 9 are looking crushed and, when the flop lands 5 10 Q to trip up Speidel’s ladies, they are indeed drawing even thinner. The A turn signals it’s all over and at the inconsequential river Speidel officially busts out two more players from the tournament.
