Ever since doors opened on October 14, Poker Dream Vietnam attendance has been tremendous with players from all over the region flocking to the quaint town of Hoi An, eager to experience what the new brand has to offer. With poker icon Winfred Yu at the helm, and the inaugural Poker Dream event in Malaysia setting the tone, confidence was high for another lucrative series.
For the past six days, large contingents from Malaysia, Hong Kong, Thailand, Taiwan, Philippines, Vietnam, and Korea have converged at the Grand Hall of Hoiana Hotel & Suites. Halfway through the series, it has already surpassed expectations with over ₫28.85 Billion (~US$ 1.1M+) paid out across 15 games. That figure doesn’t include the jaw dropping Super High Roller prize pool of nearly ₫19.7 Billion, roughly US$ 800K, and the 12 events yet to be completed. You can relive some of the past games and the ongoing SHR race via the Poker Dream social media channels.
Coming tomorrow, the festival enters its seventh day which means it is time for the MAIN EVENT. The brand initially guaranteed ₫8BN then upped it to ₫10 Billion (~US$ 408,600) making it the largest Main Event guarantee put forth by any brand in the country. The highlight event runs from October 20 to 23 with three starting heats to join the action. Here are all the details.
Buy in: ₫25,000,000 (~US$ 1,020)
Guarantee: ₫10,000,000,000 (~US$ 408,600)
Day 1A: Thursday, October 20 at 2pm
