APT Philippines ran between 24th April and 5th May at Resorts World Manila, Pasay City, Philippines. Here are the last few winners of the series. The biggest winner from APT Championship Event was Korea’s Siyoung Lee who rose to victory after overcoming a chip deficit against Iori Yogo in heads-up.

It is not easy to beat such massive fields as Lee did that, APT rewarded him with the top prize of PHP 5,295,900 (INR 70.7 Lakh) to go with exclusive APT Championship Ring and trophy. It nearly tripped his career live winnings while also registering his first APT triumph.

A record-breaking field of 316 entries joined the tournament, with each one paying the PHP 82,500 entry fee. India’s Yasheel Doddanavar was also a part of the action,¬†progressing as one of the top stacks on Day 1A. However, he wasn’t a part of the final 32 players which were all paid out with a min-cash of PHP 153,900. In another High Rollers Event though, Doddanavar came 2nd to win INR 16+ Lakh in prize money.
