MANILA, Philippines — One of three suspects who ambushed a lawyer in Quezon City early Tuesday morning, February 13, died when the intended victim fought back and later chased his attackers, running them down as they tried to flee.
Lawyer Arjel Joseph Cabatbat was driving his SUV from Greenhills and had turned right from EDSA to East Aveue when the gunmen, riding two motorcycles, drove up next to him and opened fire.
However, Cabatbata managed to fire back and, when his attackers drove away, chased them and ran down their motorcycles.
The gunmen riding pillion, who suffered the most serious injuries, were rushed to the nearby East Avenue Medical Center where one of them was declared dead on arrival. Authorities are hunting down the third gunman, who managed to escape.
A Philippine National Police identification card in the name of Police Officer 1 Mark Boquela Areyas was recovered from the dead suspect but Quezon City Police District director Chief Superintendent Guillermo Eleazar said they still need to check its validity.

Investigators are looking at the possibility the attack on Cabatbat was related to his work because the lawyer has reportedly received several death threat.

500 .com signs Hunan agreement for its sports lottery competitions
China’s sports lottery firm 500.com has supposedly signed a three-year deal with the Sports Lottery Administration Center of the Hunan Provincial Sports Bureau to develop land-based sales channels for its competitions.
Asia Gaming Brief reported on Sunday on the agreement of 500.com’s Shenzhen E-Sun Sky Network Technology Company Limited will see the subsidiary work with the provincial authority for China’s seventh most populated province to grow the customer base for sports lotteries by making ticket purchases more convenient.
The news outlet also reported that the companies are positive about accomplishing this target by the optimization of the user experience and opening more land-based outlets in the province.

PokerStars signs agreement with Asian company for live tournaments
The Stars Group, the owner of PokerStars, has signed an agreement with the Hong Kong-based International Entertainment Corporation (IEC) to host a series of branded live events across Asia.
In a statement filed at the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, IEC revealed the deal that Stars Group inked with IEC’s subsidiary Lucky Genius Ltd. The deal will expand the company’s range of entertainment products.
IEC operates a chain of hotels across Asia. It is not clear how PokerStars comes into the scheme of things for a hotel chain. The two companies are expected to work together to stage live poker tournaments in “certain Asian countries.”
The partnership comes just two weeks after PokerStars parted ways with Macau’s City of Dreams casino. Talking to GGRAsia, chairman and chief executive of Melco Resorts and Entertainment Ltd Lawrence Ho Yau Lung said the collaboration was no longer profitable.
At the time, it had been suggested that China’s plans to outlaw free-play poker apps were the reason for PokerStars’ split with City of Dream. Despite the impending legal changes, China and Asia as a whole are still seen as a growth market for the game.
With Macau home to some of the richest cash games in the world and poker tours like the Triton Poker Series attracting big-name players, the game is continuing to gain traction in the region.
