Nguyen Le Quang wins APL Hanoi Opening Event

by Gutshot Admin Posted on 13 Aug, 2019

The Opening Event of every tournament series is something that most players look forward to. Similarly, we were excited to see what kind of a participation turns out at the Asia Poker League (APL) Hanoi outing, hosting its first series in this part of the world. While most play at the Pro Poker Club in Ho Chi Minh, this stop was at Loyal Poker Club in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The overall series is scheduled between 6-16 August and the start was brilliant with a spectacular field of 562 entries joining the VND 6,600,000 APL/HSOP Kick-Off Event. A healthy prize pool of VND 3.18 Billion (~$137,200) was formed which was later shared by the top 85 finishers in the tournament.

It wasn’t too surprising that the winner was a local player in Vietnam’s Nguyen Le Quang who not only recorded his first ever major tournament victory but also took home the biggest live cash of his career – VND 785 million (~$33,800). Prior to this, the player had just about $4k in live poker cashes.

This tournament had three starting flights and other side events also came to an end including the VND 5,500,000 NLH Turbo 1 which was shipped by Pham Ngoc Quoc Bao (Vietnam) for VND 69 million, the VND 6,600,000 KO Turbo which was won by Nguyen Manh Hung (Vietnam) for VND 99 million, the VND 2,500,000 Charity which was won by Judic Kim (Korea) for VND 15.7 million and others.

Opening Event FT Payouts:

  1. Nguyen Le Quang – VND 784,940,000 (~INR 24.09 Lakh)
  2. Jeon Seungsoo – VND 415,000,000
  3. Nguyen Hoang Huu – VND 271,500,000
  4. Tran Viet Hoang – VND 209,300,000
  5. Pan Yuwen – VND 176,500,000
  6. Dao Thanh Tung – VND 143,900,000
  7. Nguyen Duy Yu – VND 107,900,000
  8. Rajesh Sabaphaty – VND 72,000,000
  9. Pham Quoc Anh – VND 49,000,000
