APC Da Nang: An Un Song tops Main Event Day 1A; three entry heats remain – ₫8 Billion (~$337K) gtd prize pool


After 13.5 hours of play, Day 1A of the APC Da Nang MAIN EVENT concluded with the first batch of Day 2 qualifiers established. Leading the seven player lineup was Korea’s An Un Song with a 39 BB stack. With no prior cashes to his name, Song may well be a newcomer to the Vietnam live scene. One of the hands that helped Song build his stack was a set of Threes over an opponent’s top pair Aces.

Just behind the leader was fellow countryman Jin Yun Bae with a 37 BB stack, and finishing in the top three was well known Vietnamese player Ta Khanh Linh aka Jack Risk with 34 BB. Linh delivered the bubble to mark the end of Day 1A. On a board that completed 6d4s5hKh4d, Linh and a short stacked player were all in on the flop. Linh’s Qc6s two pair held to dust Ad3d missed draw.
