APT Ho Chi Minh 2022: Tran Tuan Anh Wins ME Title, Amit Kaushik Finishes 3rd


The Asian Poker Tour (APT) Ho Chi Minh 2022 Main Event was a spectacular affair, with eight players making it to the final table. Held at the Saigon Poker Club, Vietnamese player Tran Tuan Anh eventually took home the prestigious title after a one hand flip turned in his favour. Indian poker pro Amit Kaushik finished in third place while Ha Van Thein was the runner-up

The final table was down to the last three players. At one point in the three-way battle where the remaining players were guaranteed at least VND 1.25B (~ $53,947.00), the three players asked tournament officials for an Independent Chip Model (ICM) chop. However, instead of giving the winning title to the chip leader which was Tran Tuan Anh, the tournament officials unanimously agreed to set aside VND 50 million (~ $2,150) each from their guaranteed ICM spots to run a one-hand ‘flip’ for VND 150 million (~ $6,450) and the prestigious Main Event trophy.

The poker gods were on Tran’s side as he was ultimately dealt the best hand among the three with K Q while Ha Van Thien, who had the second highest chip count at the time, got T 4 . Indian poker pro Amit Kaushik was dealt Q 5 .

When the cards A K 7 came on the flop, Tran was ahead as he flopped a King pair. The turn card of 3 came up which made no difference and as a 4 appeared on the river, the second place went to Ha Van Thein. This meant that Kaushik finished in the third place. Kaushik has been playing well on the live felts as he shipped the Deep Stack Hyper Turbo event in APT Summer Festival Hanoi Loyal 2022 at the Vietnam Series of Poker (VSOP).
