Yesterday saw the second featured tournament – the Championship Event taking place at Resorts World Manila’s new Grand Wing. The festival has so far been graced by world-class players from all around the Asia-Pacific including a few Indian players as well. The Championship Event featured a guaranteed prize pool of PHP 10 million and along with the biggest chunk of prize money, the winner of this event will also receive the APT Championships Trophy, and the APT Championship Ring.
Day 1A wrapped with a decent field of 95 for a buy-in of PHP 82,500 (~INR 1.12 Lakhs). The initial Day 1A of the Championship event narrowed the field down to 43 remaining survivors who will move into Day 2. The competition saw the emergence of Korea’s Jeonggyu Cho as the chip leader amassing 339,700 chips. Cho collected the highest stack during the final hand of the event. Last week’s WPT Vietnam 2019 winner, Hamish Crawshaw also entered this first starting flight. Battling heads-up with Cho. Crawshaw with Kc Qd couldn’t beat latter’s flush Ad 10d.
The event also saw the presence of notable contestants, namely Michael Kim Falcon chopping out Marc Rivera who was competing with pocket Aces over Ace-King. Additionally, the Championship event also spotted the sole Indian contender, Akshay Nasa, the APT Philippines II 2019 High Roller Single Day 1 runner-up.
