DA NANG, VIETNAM, December 12, 2022 – Playing out in the ballroom of the five-star Risemount Premier Resort, the third and final opening flight of the APT Da Nang Vietnam VSOP 2022 Main Event – partnered with the Vietnam Series of Poker (VSOP) – proved to be the most popular, drawing a sizable 182 entries (126 unique).

The local players put on a stellar performance to dominate the end of day podium, with Vietnam's Manh Hung Dinh the man sitting in the box seat after the eight 60-minute levels concluded, bagging up a stack of 257,400 to put him firmly atop the chip counts coming into Day 2.

It was another Vietnamese player – Le Quoc Son – who bagged the second largest stack of the day, and Son will be returning second in the overall counts with a stack of 240,500 when Day 2 resumes at 12pm (GMT+7) on Tuesday December 13.
