The APT Vietnam 2022 championship was recently completed in Ho Chi Minh, proving to be the biggest APT event yet in terms of participants with 722 entries lined up for the Main Event and the prize amount that totalled at a whopping US$620,000. APT Vietnam Ho Chi Minh 2022 ran from August 8 to 17 at the Saigon Poker Club, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam.
The Asian Poker Tour (APT) has been actively hosting events since 2008 and has grown to become one of the leading poker tours around the World, having over 80 major events and numerous smaller tournaments mainly in the Asia-Pacific Region in countries such as Philippines, Macau, South Korea, Cambodia, Vietnam, India, Australia, UK, New Caledonia and Cambodia. APT events combined have generated over 30 million USD in prize money all awarded to players.
The championship marked the first collaboration between APT and InPoker as the platform hosted a series of APT Vietnam satellites from Mon 25 Jul 2022 through Sun 7 Aug 2022, giving our users a chance to win a seat at the Main Event 6B VND (250K USD) GTD! The three-tier satellites produced 8 lucky winners who won a seat and traveled to compete at the APT event in Ho Chi Minh. InPoker users Dotkick, ThienMenh and Niceplay stopped playing on day 3.
The collaboration with Asian Poker Tour marked an exciting chapter for InPoker on the mission to expand
presence in the world of live poker. The team will be actively working to offer more exciting satellites to live events in the future.
