Update 09/052017: The venue has closed
Aces Poker is the very first brick & mortar poker room in Hanoi, Vietnam. In a country where gaming is limited to foreigners or Vietnamese with foreign passports, Aces Poker seems to be paving the way for poker to be considered a skill game or a mind sport. As ring games are not allowed to locals, Aces Poker conceptualized an innovative way to provide the Vietnamese community with a way to have their poker fix. With no cash game rake which other rooms rely on, Aces Poker instead offers membership to those who would like to avail of the tournament offerings of the sports club. Organizers hold 3 tournaments daily, 70% of the entry fees of which go to the prize pool and the rest to the club.
Aces Poker is licensed under the Poker & Bridge Federation .
Update 14/09/16: Foreign passport holders are no longer allowed to play at Aces Poker.
