Ishida Bests the Ladies and Razavi Rules the High Rollers

We have reached the last day of the APT Vietnam 2015 with 11 out of 46 entries returning for the continuation of the Monster Stack No Limit Holdem (Event 10). While that is underway, we would like to congratulate Yuri Ishida from Japan for winning the Ladies Event (Event 11). Ishida defeated Filipino player Ferlyn Cabaling during the heads up round to earn the $820 first place cash prize and the the APT Trophy for that event.

Ladies of Poker Champion, Yuri Ishida

Ladies Event (Event 11)
Entries: 17
Buy-in: $110
Prize Pool: $1,650

1st – Yuri Ishida – Japan – $820
2nd – Ferlyn Cabaling – Philippines – $500

The High Rollers Event (Event 12) saw 22 players cough up the $2,200 buy-in generating a prize pool of $42,680. The event ran close to dawn until APT Player of the Year 2012-2014 Samad Razavi put an end to Charly Wittmann’s stake at the gold. Razavi claimed the big cash prize payout of $18,400 and the APT trophy for that event. Razavi is currently running 5th in the APT POY 2015 standings, and after this win plus his 4th place finish at the Main Event, his points will surely increase as he tries to reach the leaders.
