APT Ambassador Nam Le Strikes at the WPT for $943,215

27th October 2008 – APT ambassador Nam Le once again cashed in big in 2008 by placing second at the World Poker Tour (WPT) Festa al Lago poker tournament main event.

Nam bested more than 350 poker players at the event before falling to eventual champion Bertrand “Elky” Grospellier. It was still an excellent showing for the APT ambassador, though, as he walked away with the hefty sum of USD $943,215.

Nam Le is one of the Asian Poker Tour’s poker ambassadors. Joined by fellow APT representatives JC Tran and Quinn Do, he represents the Asian Poker Tour at poker tournaments and events all over the world.
