APT Vietnam: Van Ngoc Binh leads ME 1C; 2 Indians survive

by Gutshot Posted on 07 Jul, 2019

It was the biggest day so far at the Asian Poker Tour’s (APT) ongoing series at the Pro Poker Club, Ho Chi Minh. The APT Vietnam Main Event kicked off a couple of days back and after two modest turnouts on Day 1A and 1B, the final starting flight saw participation in huge numbers.

Day 1C was the biggest day by miles, with a total of 243 entries registering on the day, from which 128 survivors managed to catch a bag after 8 levels of 60 minutes each. Local player Van Ngoc Binh emerged with the biggest stack of all, topping not just Day 1C, but ending as the overall chip leader going into Day 2 as well.

So far, we’ve counted a total of 204 players that will resume on Day 2, which will be played today, 7th July 2019, and registration will still be on for the first hour of the day, so the prizes are yet to be declared. Two Indians also managed to get a bag at the end of 1C, with Navlani Sumit Harikishan bagging 44,300 and Vaibhav Sharma bagging 16,100 chips.

Day 1C top 10 chip counts:

  1. Van Ngoc Binh – 176,000
  2. Tai Hsing-Hsiung – 153,900
  3. Anh Duy – 150,800
  4. Kajornnut Prirunoreung – 137,400
  5. Nguyen Pham Duy Khanh – 130,800
  6. Ian Hawksby – 128,000
  7. Makana Silva – 124,000
  8. Ryusuke Kasawaki – 118,600
  9. Lee Boon Han – 116,500
  10. Terry Nguyen – 114,600

We’ll be back to follow the action on Day 2, where a total of 6 Indians are still in contention among the final 204 players. Vietnam has been a happy hunting ground for Indian players, so we hope to see another title coming home soon. Until then, stay tuned in to GutshotMagazine.com.
