The World Poker Championship (WPC) hosted at the Grand Loyal Poker Club in Hanoi, Vietnam, has now reached the final day of its record-breaking Main Event. The final 8 of the Main Event was set after WSOP bracelet winner Abhinav Iyer bubbled the final table in 9th place. However, not all hope is lost for India as fellow Indian poker and WSOP bracelet winner Kartik Ved leads the final table with a strong stack of 9 million chips.
