Putting an end to an incredible 12 day long Asian Poker Tour (APT) Vietnam was a 3-hour prolonged heads-up between Frenchman Vincent Chauve and Japan’s Go Mori at the Championships Event VND 6 billion GTD. A runner-up finish in the recent Main Event with Akshay Nasa, it was now time for Chauve to lift the Championships trophy and title, pocketing healthy prize money and the APT Championship Ring!
The event attracted a total number of 179 entries for a buy-in of VND 3.8 million each. A prize pool of VND 6.07 Billion was drawn, and the top 18 places received a min-cash of VND 79 million. Indians were engrossed on their live screens watching the nation’s pro Dhaval Mudgal, who finished at a very impressive 3rd place for VND 730 million. (~INR 22 Lakhs).
With Chauve pushing out other remaining players, the heads-up saw a major rise and fall in lead. The Frenchman railed out Kang Feng Lien (6th), Day 3 chip leader Fu Bang Huang (5th), and ultimately faced Go Mori with a 4:1 chip advantage. The final hand of the tournament saw Chauve putting his entire stack of 8.1 million in the middle, with Kc Jh while his opponent Mori with his last 560k chips called for 10d 7s. The board ran 5s 3s 6s 9c 6h, and that’s when Chauve triumphed the competition, pocketing VND 1,576,810,000 in prize money winning with nothing but K-high!
After Nasa’s win, Mudgal entered the final table 2nd in the chip lead which highlighted the fact that he is currently among the top poker pros in India. He is well-remembered for his massive victory in the 2018 WPT Vietnam Main Event at Pro Poker Club, earning a whopping VND 2 billion (~INR 76.63 Lakhs). Vietnam is certainly a happy hunting ground for Mudgal!
