In collaboration with Korea Mind Game Members (KMGM) and Hanoi Series of Poker (HSOP), the HSS is the first of many to come. Its inaugural schedule is lined with 10 trophy events and a Player of the Series title with a total of ₫10 Billion in guarantees. The series runs from November 28 to December 4 highlighted by the ₫5 Billion guaranteed Main Event. This is the club’s last big event of the calendar season with the highly anticipated World Poker Championship II set to blast off the new year. 

Let’s have a look at the HSS opening day highlights.

Event 1: Warm Up – Day 1A

Light turnout at Day 1A of the festival Warm Up event with only 52 taking interest. Among them were Vietnam circuit regulars Vu Thai Bao, Trent Fechter, Nguyen Duc Nhat, and KMGM’s Tiger Lee. The heat closed when ITM was reached. Seven players advanced to the final day led by chip leader Dinh Quang Huy who bagged 267,000 in chips.

For those that missed the mark at Day 1A or for those that have yet to jump in the action, there are two entry heats remaining, both of them take place on Tuesday, November 29. Day 1B starts at 11am and Day 1C Turbo starts at 3:30pm. Buy in is ₫8,800,000 (~$355). With the event guaranteeing ₫2,000,000,000 (~$80,500), this is great value for players as an overlay may be possible.
