Fastest Ever: Tran becomes APT Main Event champ in 2 hands! (1st – $124,000)

That was a fast one!

There’s a wild celebration here at the Resorts World Manila as we have just witnessed the fastest heads-up round in the history of the Asian Poker Tour main event as a champion was decided in just TWO HANDS! Yes, that’s not a typo and that’s what we get when you have two aggressive players going at it from the get go.

And this is the story of the last hand:

Thang Truong opened the betting preflop to 100,000 but saw a re-raise all-in from Khac Trung Tran! Truong would consider this one for a long time as this was his tournament life at risk… He made the call!

Tran: J♠ Q♥
Truong: A♣ 6♠

Flop: 3♣ 9♦ J♦ and Tran and his supporters can already taste the title here.

Turn Q♦ arrived and it was all over. Dealer tables river Q♣ for formality and simply, the exclamation point on Khac Trung Tran’s great main event run as he becomes the APT Philippines 2013 Main Event champion! For this herculean effort, he goes home with $124,000.Congratulations!
