The Mini Main Event was a big crowd favorite with 525 entries tallied over three starting flights. This generated a crushing VN₫ 4 Billion prize pool, doubling up the guarantee.

After three days of competition and a tough final table, the last two standing were Tien Van Dinh and Anh Duy Nguyen. Both players decided on an ICM deal and award Dinh the victory for his larger stack.
