APL Kunming Main Event crosses 1,000 entries

by Gutshot Admin Posted on 15 Mar, 2019

Asia Poker League (APL) hosted APL Road Series and it recently started on a bustling note at Kunming in Yunnan Province, China. The series began on 8th March and will go into the books on 18th March 2019 at the Wilo Intelligent Transportation Hall. The highlight of the series, CNY 5,500 Main Event, is running since 10th March and currently Day 2 is being played out.

The Main Event attracted a huge playing field of a record-breaking 1,043 entries from all four starting flights. Day 1A attracted 182, 1B attracted 150, 1C 296 and the last flight Day 1D drew 415 entries. The field chipped in the buy-in which resulted in an enormous prize pool of CNY 5,058,550 (~INR 5.21 Crores).

Day 2 is currently underway with 266 players in contention however there’s still a long way to go for the money to start flowing, starting at 113th position. The field was dominated by Chinese players which came as no surprise. Some of the notables running in the tournament are all four chip leaders from the starting flights, Yang PengYong XuYuan Ye and Wang Hai Zhou.
