Singapore’s Keith Ong closed out Championships Event Day 1B leading the 46 survivors. He bagged up a commanding 285,800 stack to seize the top spot in the overall Day 2 chip counts. Also racking up big stacks were Keigo Fujimoto and WSOP bracelet winner Alex Lindop, both players earning 2nd and 3rd rank positions.
The APT Vietnam Hanoi Loyal 2022 – CHAMPIONSHIPS EVENT – has been underway since June 15 at the Grand Loyal Poker Club. 63 entered Day 1A and today’s heat drew a larger 94 entries for 157 total to easily smash the advertised guarantee. The pot is now over VN₫ 5 Billion and will continue to bloat with three hours of late registration yet to complete. For all you fence sitters and weekend warriors, this is your last chance to join the action.
If you are new to the APT, the Championships Event is a deep stacked tournament with blinds escalating every 60 minutes. Signing up at the last second still gives you a playable 20 BB which some have turned into final table finishes. Day 2 will also see 76 players return from the entry heats. Festival Main Event champion Shardul Parthasarathi is among them, including Super High Roller champion Pham Tien Dung and Manish Lakhotia who won this event at the APT Online India series.
We will have the prize pool and payouts posted once registration closes. You can also track the action via Live Updates starting at 325pm.
