First edition of the Vietnam Poker Cup announced

Edit: Event Guide is now published

The Ho Tram Strip will be once more playing host to an international poker event this summer, as the Vietnam Poker Cup has been scheduled to take place between August 21st – 23rd . This announcement comes in the wake of the APT Vietnam which was a great success at this venue, receiving positive reviews from most of the players who took part. It's no surprise to see more events scheduled at this location, as Ho Tram is quickly becoming one of the best poker destinations in Vietnam. The APT Vietnam, in which Kwan Kit Kwok won the main event, has paved the way for this great event to be arranged, and Somuchpoker are excited to be an important partner of the Vietnam Poker Cup.

Poker in Ho Tram has really taken off since April, when they teamed up with WGG (World Gaming Group.) There has been a great management team developing and fine tuning the poker experience on offer here. This new poker haven within the casino is matched by the beauty of the surroundings and the social events and activities such as golf, to be experienced just outside the front door. With the Vietnam Poker Cup following so closely after the success of APT Vietnam, there are strong signs that Ho Tram will continue to help Vietnam grow in stature as one of the finest destinations for poker in Asia.

Andrew Scott (World Gaming Group) made the announcement from Las Vegas: "This is the beginning of something that will last for many years to come. The Vietnam Poker Cup is a historic event with the winner’s name to forever be etched in glory. “It is also a major milestone for Ho Tram Resort Casino as Vietnam’s first home grown poker event and while it is open to all holders of non-Vietnamese passports we are sure it will become a must-play event for those non-Vietnamese passport holders living in Ho Chi Minh City and elsewhere throughout Vietnam.”
