We have reached Day 2 of the APT Vietnam Ho Chi Minh 2019 – CHAMPIONSHIPS EVENT at Pro Poker Club. If you aren’t one of the 72 players that advanced from the starting day heats, then make sure to get to the venue early. Registration is still open but will close at the start of Level 10. That gives all you fence-sitters and late-comers one hour after the starting buzzer to jump in. Buy-in is VND 38,500,000. Starting stack is 50,000.
The Championships Event drew a combined 161 entries which means the VND 6 Billion guarantee will soon be breached. We will have the official prize pool for you once registration closes. You can follow the action via our Live Updates which starts at Level 10.
