The series showstopper at the inaugural Asian Poker Tour (APT) Vietnam Hanoi Loyal, the VND 5 Billion GTD (~$215,630) Main Event, took flight on Thursday. The first of three starting flights of the Main Event logged in 73 entries, and only 30 players advanced through to Day 2, with the 2017 APT Philippines Championships Event winner, Vietnam’s Huu Dung Nguyen (152,900 – 191 BBs), bagging the chip lead. Chien Than (106,800) and Tran Huy Hoang (99,500) carried the other top stacks from the flight.

Also part of the field was Team India’s Zarvan Tumboli. Fresh off a resounding victory in the WPT Prime Vietnam Main Event, Tumboli is among the Indian pros attending the series. He has made it to Day 2 with a stack of 29,700 and ranks 26th in chips among the 30 survivors.
