Dang Xuan Canh wins APT Vietnam Main Event

by Gutshot Posted on 20 Jul, 2018

The Asian Poker Tour (APT) is one of the biggest brands of poker in Asia, regularly hosting tournament series across locations like Macau, Manila, Vietnam, Korea and others. Currently, they have a stop in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, with the Main Event just coming to an end.

A field of 499 players registered to the Main Event which had a guaranteed prize pool of VND 9.68 billion. The top 84 players finished in the money and it was the local Vietnamese poker player, Dang Xuan Canh, who walked away with the APT Championship Trophy, the APT Championship Ring, and the cash prize of VND 1,636,720,000 for first place.

It has been a good time for Canh in live poker of late. His first major live poker cash came a couple of months back, when he cashed in third place at the APL (Asia Poker League) Vietnam Main Event. Once again, he’s done well in a home event, finishing first for a career-best cash.

Earlier, Indian poker pro Devesh Thapar finished 13th in the Main Event, winning VND 115,410,000 (~INR 3.40 lakh) for this finish. The likes of Sumit Sapra and Ravi Priya also reached Day 2 of the tournament but busted their stacks on that day. However, we are expecting more Indian participation in the upcoming APT stops this year, with the company partnering with Indian poker company Baadshah Gaming, to host online and live APT satellites.

Final table results:

  1. Dang Xuan Canh – VND 1,636,720,000 (~INR 49.23 lakh)
  2. Minh Le – VND 1,091,150,000
  3. Vu Duc Trung – VND 761,810,000
  4. Tzu Chieh Lo – VND 554,530,000
  5. Lien Kang Feng – VND 419,090,000
  6. Hai Chuot – VND 327,560,000
  7. Tran Duc Phuong – VND 263,820,000
  8. Le Duc Anh – VND 218,230,000
