WPC Hanoi 2022: Nishant Sharma Takes Home Another Live Title


The Grand Loyal Poker Club’s ballroom was filled with poker playing looking to ship titles at the World Poker Championship Hanoi 2022. The day saw Indian poker pro Nishant Sharma ship the WPC High Roller Single Day event. Sharma is the first Indian player in the current series edition to clinch a title for VN₫ 679,500,000.

With many players taking part in the Main Event starting flights, the series added a High Roller Single Day event to keep the poker action flowing. The event had a buy-in worth VN₫ 55,000,000 (~US$ 2,321) which was bigger compared to the other tournaments. The prize pool of the event was VN₫ 1,697,500,000 (~US$ 71,639). There were 35 entries who participated in the event and five players finished in the money.

Sharma was consistently in the lead since the start of the game and he continued his run until he was among the final five. Once the money bubble burst, player Ng Vu Huy and Gary Pound Thomas were quickly eliminated in 5th for VN₫ 153,000,000 and 4th place for VN₫ 186,000,000, respectively. With only three players remaining, Sharma and Michael Kim Falcon sat comfortably with massive stacks.
