Day 1A: 15 advanced out of 123 entries
Day 1B: 23 advanced out of 185 entries
Day 1C: 36 advanced out of 288 entries

Day 1C ran a lengthy 10 hours before the final 36 players was determined. Among the many casualties were local pros Cao Ngoc Anh, Macaron Tran, Huynh Ngoc Cuong, and Harry Duong. Other fallouts were Filipino Christopher Mateo, Malaysia‘s Jin Yong, Japan’s Satoshi Kuriga, and Singapore‘s Li Wenxuan who missed the mark on all three days.

When the Day 2 qualifiers return, they will all be looking at a minimum payout of VN₫ 13,500,000 but what they will be hunting down is the substantial VN₫ 875,000,000 (~US$ 37,764) first prize. Cards start flying at 11am on Sunday, May 22. In prime position are locals Mr Muoi and Phuong Xu, both players dominated Day 1C and bagged up nearly equal stacks.

DAC 3968 1
Mr Muoi

Mr Muoi’s story was quite amazing. He climbed from just one ante to overall chip leader. His biggest boost was with trips Kings  AhKc over pocket Queens then just before the bubble round, he delivered a double knockout with QhQs set over Ks10h and JcJs on a board QcAd8s10d7d.

DAC 3974
Phuong Xu

Before Mr Muoi made his ascent, Phuong Xu was already backed by a heavy arsenal and added more to it when he railed a player with As8h over Ad5s. This signaled in the bubble round.

Day 2 qualifiers = 74 players
