Day 3 of the APT Kickoff 2016 Main Event Kickoff; Tran Wins the WLS Deep Stack Turbo

We are back to highlight your day with more Asian Poker Tour Kickoff 2016 festivities at the APT Poker Room inside the Waterfront Manila Pavilion Casino Filipino. Starting at 1pm is the Main Event with 20 players back at the felt to battle it out for a final table berth. Because the money was not reached yesterday, two players will be biting the dust today with no pay. The good news is, if the player who bubbles qualified for the Main Event Bubble Protection, then he will be awarded a free seat to the next APT Main Event. Ten of the players returning today have Main Event Bubble Protection.

Entering Day 3 as the overall chip leader is Korea’s Jeon Seung Soo with 269,500 chip; in second is Germany’s Julius Malzanini with 264,000 chips; and in third is Japan’s Tetsuya Tsuchikawa with 241,000 chips.

We will be posting live updates of the action so head to the Live Reporting section of the website for a read on those exciting moments. You can also check out some video highlights of the ongoing APT Kick Off 2016 at APT’s youtube page.

Other events on deck today is the Monster Stack Day 1 at 2pm. Buy-in for this event is P27,500. At 6pm is the MSW Deep Stack Turbo event. Buy-in is P5,500.
