Surprising the early goers was an incentive for all Day 1A attendees, a special bonus reward of ₫30 Million if you close the day as chip leader.

By the end of registration, 86 chased it, however only 11 players moved on to the next round. Navigating his way to the top was Phan Duy Tai with the largest stack to seize the coveted bonus prize. Also powering through was hot running Nguyen Huu Vinh aka Hoa Vinh who has already been seen at two final tables this series. Another notable player was Ngo Minh Tien who recently placed 4th at the record breaking Poker Dream Vietnam Main Event.
For those that missed the mark or just making their way to the series, the Main Event continues on November 4 with Day 1B up on the plate. Buy in is ₫16.5 Million (~$665) with unlimited re-entries.
