The penultimate day of the inaugural WPT Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City had a wide range of side action filling every seat at the Pro Poker Club. By the midnight cutoff, three titles were claimed and one bagging up with the final 9 remaining. We’ve got those stories for you below.
Dinh Xuan Dinh wins the High Roller event
Like we said in an earlier post, the WPT Vietnam High Roller event was one of the hottest tickets with 224 entries turning up over the two starting days. With each entry at VND 44,000,000, today’s 67 remaining players were welcomed in with a VND 8,691,200,000 (~US$372,250) prize pool of which 28 players would get a slice. Taking home the largest cut of VND 2,072,670,000 (~US$88,650) was Vietnam’s Dinh Xuan Dinh after he defeated Danny Tang at heads up.
With the WPT Vietnam Main Event now in the books, it’s time to catch up on the side event action. Currently running is the WPT – Pro Poker Superstack Classic. That’s a three-day event and by the size of the field, it looks like players will be seeing a very nice pot for that. Registration has now closed. We have the official numbers below along with results of all the other events that have concluded plus the WPT Asia Swing Player of the Year current standings.
WPT – Pro Poker Superstack Classic
Players returned today for Day 2 of the WPT – Pro Poker Superstack Classic with registration still open for another four rounds, approximately 2 hours. A steady stream of players were seen signing up to bring the total runners of this event to 195. With buy-in at VND 11,000,000, players are looking at a prize pool worth VND 1,891,500,000 (~US$80,930). The money will be reached today with 25 players paid. The eventual winner will receive VND 470,850,000 (~US$20,150). Today’s goal is to play down to the final 9 players then bag up for a night’s rest to complete the race tomorrow.
