The Road to PSPC ₱10 Million GTD Main Event grabbed all the eyeballs at the Coral Lounge at Okada Manila on September 22. The showstopper tourney that features a ₱22,000 buy-in ran the third of its six starting flights, Day 1C, that drew 145 entries (124 unique), with only 22 runners qualifying for Day 2.

The three-time APT Phu Quoc winner and July 2022 APT Summer Festival Hanoi Main Event champion Vamerdino Magsakay (564,000) topped the Day 1C survivors, with China’s Nick Jianfeng Ji (535,000) and Ireland’s Dino Sabatini (443,000) in tow.

Three Indians, namely Dhanesh Chainani, J Raju and Raja P, had entered Day 1C, but none of them made it through. Raju has already booked a berth for Day 2, having qualified from Day 1A with a stack of 115,500. Since the players can enter all starting flights and progress with their best stack forward, Raju was clearly in the quest to improve his chances for the title.

With three of the six flights in the books, the Main Event has registered 337 entries (Day 1A – 87, Day 1B – 105), with another three flights left to run course.

Two starting flights of the Main Event, i.e., Day 1D and Day 1E, are scheduled from 1 PM and 7 PM (local time) on Friday, September 23, while Day 1F, the final flight, will feature a turbo format and run from noon on Saturday, September 24.
