APL: 16 Indians move into Day 2

by GS Admin Posted on 31 May, 2018

The ongoing Asia Poker League’s Road Series Vol. 2 taking place in the Pro Poker Club in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam saw the final starting flight of its Main Event conclude last evening. A total of 4 starting flights were part of this Main Event which has a massive VND 5 billion guarantee (~INR 1.48 Crores) in place and a bunch of Indian players decided to take advantage of the juicy guarantee and headed this past weekend to Vietnam.

Given the sizeable Indian contingent, it did not take too long for Team India to claim a title or should we say two with Devesh Thapar and Adarsh Jayappa shipping two titles in the first couple of days of this series. The Main Event got underway on Sunday afternoon and from reports received from the venue by Gutshot, the Indian contingent is said to have contributed over 100 entries (as this was a re-entry event) over the course of the four starting flights. Each buy-in to the Main Event is VND 11 million (~INR 32,600) so players were really gunning to give that big guaranteed prizepool their best shot.

From a total of 863 entries across all flights, 230 players survived by the end of the final starting flight which was completed in the late hours of Wednesday evening. Leading the pack going into Day 2 are, not surprisingly, three Vietnamese players in Tommy Luong with an even 300,000 in chips and his compatriots Le Ngoc Khanh (288,800) and Louis Nguyen (273,200) round off the top three. 

16 Indians in Day 2

From the 230 survivors of various Day 1s, a total of 16 Indians have survived and moved to Day 2 which has kicked off a couple of hours ago at the Pro Poker Club. Chiraag Patel has the biggest stack from the Indians with 194,900 chips followed by Sumit Sapra holding 142,600, Kush Kataria (121,500), Dhaval Mudgal (101,700) and Akshay Nasa (113,800) rounds off the top 5 Indian players.

Here’s a look at the full list of the Indians still in the APL Main Event:-

  • Chiraag Patel – 194,900 
  • Sumit Sapra – 142,600 
  • Kush Kataria – 121,500
  • Dhaval Mudgal – 101,700
  • Akshay Nasa – 113,800
  • Ujjwal Rana Singh – 109,700

  • Sahil Agarwal – 76,500
  • Dodka Raghavendra – 92,000
  • Neeraj Kumar – 77,400
