Main Event details

The first three days – April 20, 21, and 22 – are dedicated to entry flights. Four are scheduled with the last one a Turbo format. Players that sign up before Level 1 ends will receive a special USOP jacket. This applies to all Day 1 flights.

Once signed up, players begin with 40,000 in chips, equivalent to 400x the initial blinds. If you hadn’t noticed, this is much deeper than the brand’s inaugural live series Main Event in Taiwan last February.

Dates: April 20 to 24
Buy in: VN₫ 22,000,000 (~US$ 930)
Guarantee: VN₫ 10,000,000,000 (~US$ 425,350)

Day 1D (Turbo) April 22 20 miniutes 5:00 PM

Players can register until the end of Level 10. Day 1 blinds increase every 40 minutes (20 minutes for the Turbo), then 60 minutes for Day 2 and Day 3. Players that register at the last minute will still have a decent 20 BB. All Day 1 flights end when 12.5% of the players remain.
