APT Vietnam 2022: Shardul Parthasarathi Clinches Main Event Title!


After 4 days of intense grinding in this particular tournament, the Asian Poker Tour (APT) Hanoi Loyal 2022 Main Event has come to an end with Indian player Shardul Parthasarathi bringing the coveted title home. Making the entire Indian poker community proud, Parthasarathi made it to the final table with fellow Indian player Ashish Munot.

And in this all-India heads-up duel, we ultimately saw Parthasarathi being crowned as the first APT Vietnam Hanoi Main Event champion while Munot ended as the runner-up for the second time in Vietnam in less than a month’s time. Parthasarathi took home a huge prize money worth VND 1,929,250,000 (~ ₹64.82 Lakh) plus an APT Main Event trophy, and an APT Championship ring, while Munot ended with VND 1,286,190,000 (~ ₹43.21 Lakh) for finishing second.

When asked about his win, here’s what Parathsarathi said, “It feels great to finally win a live title! APT Vietnam 2022 has been an amazing series and winning the Main Event made it even sweeter.”

The Main Event had a total of 471 entries and generated a whopping prize pool of worth VND 9,134,400,000! There were 56 players that made it to Day 3 of the event with Parthasarathi entering in the 54th place among the shortest stacks of the day with only around 9 BBs. Despite a significant stack disadvantage, he managed to battle his way through the day and quickly found himself on the final table with the fourth-highest chip stack at the end of the day.

Unfortunately for Nguyen Van Trung, he busted in 3rd place after his pocket eights could not hold up to Parthasarathi’s pair of Kings on the flop. With the exit of Trung, heads-up was between the two Indian players. Munot is no stranger to going heads up against a fellow Indian as he battled Zarvan Tumboli at the recently concluded World Poker Tour (WPT) Prime Vietnam 2022 Main Event.

Both these players are super experienced in the live circuit. As for Parthasarathi, he spends a lot of time coaching players in the Poker Boot Camp India (PBCI). More recently, he captained Kolkata Kings to winning Poker Sports League (PSL) Season 4. As for Munot, he’s won WPT India a couple of years ago and just a few weeks ago, he had the epic heads-up session with fellow Indian Zarvan. Unfortunately, he’s yet to lift a trophy in Vietnam but we’re sure that third time will be the charm for him!  

Final Hand

Parthasarathi had nine-eight offsuite as hole cards while Munot had Queen-seven. Both went all-in preflop and the flop opened to J K 7 . Munot would’ve been happy as he hit a pair of Sevens but the poker Gods were clearly favouring the ultimate champion. The turn and river opened 6 and 5 as Parthasarathi completed a runner-runner straight that delivered the title to him.
