WPT Prime Vietnam ME: Defending Champ Zarvan Tumboli Spills The Tea


The World Poker Tour (WPT) Prime Vietnam 2023 is currently underway at Crown Poker Club in Hanoi, Vietnam. The series, which held a successful season last year at the same venue, returned for another edition this May.

The 2022 edition of the series was held between 19th to 30th May, and saw a huge number of players from all over the Asian continent flying down to Vietnam and participating in the series. The series had a total of 24 events which crowned champions.

Among them, the ultimate Main Event title was taken down by Indian poker pro Zarvan Tumboli. The Spartan Poker pro outlasted a field of 777 total entries and finally beat fellow Indian Ashish Munot in the heads-up to walk away with the top prize of $131,394 (approx. ₹1.01 Crore).

Being the defending Main Event champion, we were curious to know how excited Tumboli is for the upcoming season; we caught hold of him before he boarded his flight to Vietnam.

We asked him which events he’s looking forward to playing at the series, to which he said, “I Will be going late and I am looking to play the Main and HRs of both WPT and APT. The WPT Prime series is going to be a huge success, the numbers at WPT Prime events have always been great and I have no doubts about this one too.”

He talks about Vietnam being his favourite poker destination, saying, “Vietnam is one of my favourite destinations because I have won quite a few titles there, the Main being the biggest and most cherished.”

We also asked this cheerful Mumbaite if he feels the pressure of defending his title. He laughs and says, “Defending ME, champ! No pressure as such. I am just going to do what I do best, have a positive attitude, stay committed and keep it simple. I’m more future-focused nowadays and always grateful for the opportunities ahead.”

Finally, he concludes by saying, “A sizeable Indian contingent is expected there; I hope the ME trophy comes to India again.”

Well, we wish you all the very best, Zarvan! Hope to see you and the Indian contingent crushing it this season too!
