The 2018 Asian Poker Tour (APT) Vietnam has witnessed some big action being unfolded in the last week at the Pro Poker Club. Indian performers took the challenge and led the charge to bring glory for their nation. With the tour about to conclude, the excitement is higher than ever and the players are battling it hard for winning the tournament.
Most of the players who had returned to the field on Day 3 have already got eliminated and only seven of the players are left who will be resuming the play today for deciding the champion. Quang Nguyen is leading the chips stacks among the seven finalists. Kanishka Samant, Vivek Rughani, Sajal Gupta, Zarvan Tumboli and Shashank Jain led by WSOP (World Series of Poker) bracelet winner Nikita Luther returned to Day 3 in the event. However, all of them got eliminated short of the final table. The Indian campaign was being led by Nikita Luther who pulled ahead right from the Day 1B fight that witnessed her bagging the chip lead. Luther took over the mantle as the overall chip leader among 194 runners who returned with a stack of 954,000.
Luther ended her glittering run on 11th place. Luther has recently joined the coveted list of WSOP bracelet winners this summer for winning the 2018 WSOP Tag Team Event. Luther has also led the Global team event at the 2018 World Poker Tour Korea and her deep run at the Main Event now has added another feather to her cap.
Another poker player who brought accolades for India in the APT Vietnam was Vivek Rughani who got eliminated in the 19th place. Rughani has also managed to make some big strides this year for the young poker player. This year he also won an all-expenses paid trip to World Series of Poker 2018 on 9stacks and went on to cash in three WSOP events which also included an 87th place finish in the WSOP Main Event which earned him Rs. 53.12 Lakhs prize amount.
