APT Asian Series Manila 2013
Resorts World Manila’s Genting Club and Premier Club is playing host to APT Asian Series Manila 2013 that kicked off on 9th Oct and is scheduled to run through 16th Oct. The eight-day long poker festivities include a total of fourteen events and the latest event to conclude was the APT Asian Series Mega Sports World Deep Stack, which for the first time ever saw a woman taking home the championship title in Diana Tan from the Philippines who took home the PHP 137,500 top prize.
The event 8, Pot Limit Omaha was won by Av Viet Hung of Vietnam who took home PHP 218,490. Among the other prominent events of the series, England’s Samad Razavi ruled event 3, the Mix Game PLH/PLO and went home PHP 146,500 richer for his first-place finish.
The event 4 i.e. High Rollers event had a few Indians going in deep in the event. Jasven Saigal and Apoorva Goel were both in Day 2 of the High Rollers event. Apoorva was the only Indian who made it in the money as he went on to finish fifth for PHP 437,000. An American player – Josh Stefansky won the event for PHP 1.6 Million in prize money.
Another Indian to cash in at this edition of the APT was young gun Dhaval Mudgal who won all his APT buy-ins in the Adda52 satellite. Dhaval finished third in event 2 of the series, the Add On for Charity event. The event saw a total of 105 entries with 90 rebuy and 100 add-ons, the highest-ever number for an APT Asian Series opening dayside event. The entire proceeds of the Add On will go towards the Rotary Club of Makati North’s student feeding program. Dhaval also cashed in event 5, the Head Hunter event of the series by making a 17th place finish for PHP 26,100. This is also the most popular side event in the tour and was won by Philippines’ Jay Tolon for PHP 422,000.
The highlight of the series, APT Asian Series Manila Main Event began on Saturday, Oct 12th with day 2 currently underway. With two entry flights, Day 1A and Day 1B the event attracted a total of 159 and 230 players respectively on both the days. At the end of day 1B, the field was reduced to 155 players and one man standing above the rest was Jihad Beijjani from Lebanon with the highest chip counts. Among the Indian players, Apoorv Goel, Mandeep Narang and Srinivas Poloshetty lead the Indian charge onto day 2 of the main event. While Narang began the day with a good stack of 93,300; Goel and Poloshetty had 21,300 and 31,500 respectively.
The top 45 players in the PHP 50,000 buy-in event will make the money with the eventual winner getting a whooping PHP 4.27M from a prize pool of PHP 17.3 Million.
The latest update shows that day 2 has come to a close and the money bubble has been breached guaranteeing all remaining players a piece of the prize pool. The remaining 45 will proceed into day 3, which starts tomorrow.
