Huge day at APT Vietnam Ho Chi Minh 2019 with wall-to-wall players at Pro Poker Club. Dragging everyone in was none other than the MAIN EVENT and its juicy VND 8 Billion (~USD 344,000) guarantee.
Today was the last starting day to enter. 243 poured in (186 uniques and 57 re-entries) to bring the combined entries to 402. This meant the guarantee was matched. Tomorrow’s final hour to enter will be added icing.
