Final Table Action
The final table began with chip leader Truong Vu Tuan Khanh was looking to go one better than his runner-up finish at the APT Phu Quoc Main Event earlier this year. However, he had a rollercoaster start by doubling up Farhad Aghayev only to win it back to retain the lead.
Khanh then sent Canada's Alexander Puchalski to the rail, with former APT Incheon Main Event winner Aghayev departing soon after despite his early double.
Doo Sik Nam had a quiet start, but sent Dinh Van Tien and Truong Toan Chan to the rail as he started to make his move.
Nam then busted a third player in a row as Nguyen Kim Truong fell in fourth place, with Duc Trung Vu closing the gap with the elimination of Khanh in third place.
In the final hand, Nam spiked a king on the flop with king-jack to beat the ace-ten of Vu to emerge triumphant.
