Sajal Gupta finishes 4th in APT Vietnam Monster Stack
The amount of Indian participation in Asian Poker Tour (APT) events is slowly increasing and this ongoing APT stop at Vietnam saw a huge contingent of Indian players participating, encouraged by a recent result where India's Dhaval Mudgal won the WPT Vietnam Main Event for a prize amount of roughly INR 76 lakh.
Before the APT Main Event began at the Pro Poker Club in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, there were a couple of other side events that took place. Many Indian players made deep runs in the CoinPoker Super High Rollers but only 6 made the money, where Raghav Bansal and Sahil Agarwal finished just outside the money and Malaysia's Victor Chong took down the title.
Next was the VND 11,000,000 buy-in Monster Stack event where several Indians participated again, with a total field of 194 entries registering. India's Sajal Gupta had a major chip lead for a long part of the final day but he wasn't able to capitalize on that lead, eventually busting in an impressive 4th place for VND 137,390,000 (4.35 lakh).
Also sharing the VND 1,881,800,000 prize pool was India's Amanpreet Singh, who was chip leader on the Final Table. However, he also seesawed on the FT to go from chip lead to busto in just a matter of a few hands. He won VND 81,160,000 (~INR 2.57 lakh) for this run and Vietnam's Duong Vi Khoa went on to win the title for VND 328,523,769 after a 3-way deal.
Final table results:
- Duong Vi Khoa – VND 328,523,769 (deal)
- Tony Ngeow Chung Fai – VND 291,243,157 (deal)
- Nguyen Phuong – VND 265,853,093 (deal)
- Sajal Gupta – VND 137,390,000
- Tran Van Quan – VND 103,840,000
- Amanpreet Singh – VND 81,160,000
- Kazuma Inotsume – VND 65,370,000
- Anthony Hope – VND 54.070,000
