It was a hard fought final table at the Super High Roller with several players back for another attempt at glory including series opener champion Cao Ngoc Anh, However, in the end, their hopes were crushed by Nguyen Trung Ha aka Hasagi who outshined to claim the trophy and the ₫920,000,000 (~$37,000) top prize.
