Day 3 of the APT Asian Poker Series Manila 2015 Main Event at the Resorts World Manila in Pasay City, Philippines is set today, Tuesday with 51 of 341 entries returning with hopes that they at least reach the money round—or 36th place—or a spot in the eight-handed final table.
Yao Hui of China leads the pack with 342,500 in chips while Raghan Bansal of India also went past the 300K mark after Day 2. Here are the top 10 players entering Day 3:
|3||Le Ngoc Khanh||295,500|
Conversely, here are the players who are in dire straits entering Day 3, which begins with blinds/antes of 2000/4000/500, but could be a double-up away from contending for one of the ITM slots.
|50||Choong Kon Kim||23,500|
Other notable pros who are still in the running for the APT title are; Linh Tran (Vietnam) with 255,000; Kai Paulsen (Norway) with 233,000; Thomas Ward (New Zealand) with 188,000; John Tech (Philippines) with 176,000; SJ Kim (Korea) with 169,500; Bryan Huang (Singapore) with 166,000; Marc Rivera (Philippines) with 130,000; Simba (Korea) with 106,500; Kenneth Khoo (Singapore) with 96,000; and Roger Spets (Sweden) with 58,000, among many others.
From the total prize pool of PHP 15,215,400, the lion’s share of PHP 3,758,200 will go to the next APT main event champion. Day 3 ends play when the final eight players are set with the final table starting play at 1:30 PM Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Michael de Leon from the Philippines bagged the WeLoveSport Deep Stack Turbo event title early Tuesday and the local pro took home PHP 165,000 in beating a 133-player field who joined the side event.
