18 Indians make it to APPT National Day 2

by Team Gutshot Posted on 07 Aug, 2018

The Asia-Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) has an ongoing poker tournament series in Manila and the Indian attendance is high at this location, with many having their eyes on big scores and even possibly a PSPC Platinum Pass. 5 of these are being given away, with Mongolia’s Tsolmon-Erdene Ochir winning the first.

6 Indians cashed out in the APPT Manila Kickoff Event, while a couple of Indians made good runs in other smaller events. Amit Nautiyal cashed for PHP 8,000 for finishing 15th in APPT Manila Event #3: Knockout, while Mad Over Poker Pro Zarvan Tumboli scored PHP 21,200 for finishing 11th in Event #7: Turbo Deepstack.

The next big event that everyone had their eyes on was the APPT National, with a buy-in of PHP 30,000 and a massive number of 829 entries registering to the event across the two days of starting flights. This created a prize pool of PHP 21,711,510 (~INR 2.82 crore), with PHP 4,559,000 (~INR 59.25 lakh) plus a $30,000 Platinum Pass reserved for the winner.

At the end of Day 1a and 1b, a total of 230 survivors bagged their chips to come back on Day 2, of which there were 18 Indians still alive in the competition. Three of them are pretty decently stacked, with Abhinav Iyer in the lead among the Indians (162,000). Akshay Nasa (158,200) and Vidwath Shetty (155,900) are close behind him, while the overall chip leader is Vietnam’s Ngoc Anh Cao (329,900), who recently who the APT Vietnam Championships Event at Ho Chi Minh.

This record-breaking field ensured that the PHP 5 million guarantee was quadrupled, while the PHP 40 million series guarantee has also been beaten, with quite a few days still left in the series. The top 99 players will be paid a min-cash of PHP 61,000 in this tournament, but our Indian players will be aiming for much higher.
