After 11 days of continuous poker action, Asia Poker League wrapped up the APL Ho Chi Minh City Road Series Vol.3 literally with the lights out as heavy rain pounded the roof of Pro Poker Club. The festival ran from November 15 to 25 with over 2000 entries and VND 21 Billion (US$898K) in prizes. 17 trophies were claimed. Capturing the most sought after title was Quang Nguyen, the newest APL Main Event champion.
This year has seen the APL branch out and bring their brand of poker to destinations outside of China. While they’ve had one visit to the Philippines, this was their second in Vietnam. Players from Korea, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Australia, and France were among the attendees, plus of course a solid showing of Vietnamese players. Festival highlights are posted below including the last side event winners.
