The 2018 Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) Manila is fast approaching its finale with 17 out of its 22 events already declaring winners. With the Main Event, Saturday SuperStack and High Roller just a day away from crowning a champion, there is still quite a bit of electrifying action left to unfold.

Out of the 22 Indian challengers who started Day 2 of the Main Event, only eight, including Sriharsha Doddapaneni (43rd for ₱210,000~₹2.72 Lakhs) and Ravi Priya (62nd for ₱170,000~₹2.20 Lakhs), were able to finish in the money, as the remaining 14 busted empty-handed. However, the Saturday SuperStack event saw another huge turnout by the Indian contingent with 29 players joining the action. However, only Sahil Chutani (400,000), Jaydeep Dawer (341,000) and Varun Gupta (163,000) among them made the cut for Day 2, with Chutani and Dawer placed fourth and seventh in stacks respectively.

Kavin Shah (89,500), Aditya Sushant (53,600) and Shashank Rathi (18,000) were seen in action in the High Roller and all three made Day 2.

Meanwhile, Nick Roscoe Blackburn won his second title at the ongoing series in the Hyper Turbo for ₱160,400 ($3,017) and Maxim Befus took down the ₱15,000 NLH Turbo for ₱336,000 ($6,319).

Hiroshi Naito (838,000) and Yan Li (122,100) are leading the Day 2 survivors in the Saturday SuperStack and High Roller respectively.

Event 17: Hyper Turbo

The Hyper Turbo opened to a field of 87 runners and with a buy-in of ₱8,000, the event generated a prize pool of ₱594,106. Another fast-paced event where only the top 10 spots were assured a min-cash of ₱17,906, the event was taken down by the American pro Nick Roscoe Blackburn, who pocketed ₱160,400 ($3,017) in the process, making this his second title win after his victory in the ₱5000 Knockout.

Japan’s Takuo Serita (10th ₱17,906) bubbled the final table.
