The Warm Up event opened the HSS on November 28 at the Grand Loyal Poker Club in Hanoi, Vietnam with 262 entries over three starters. Only 34 advanced to the final day, each one already in the money and vying for the lion’s share of the ₫2,033,120,000 prize pool.  While the field was heavily dominated by locals, two international players reached the loaded final table, Korea’s You Heung Youl finished 7th and USA’s Trent Fechter went a further 3rd place.

Recapping the race, early action saw heavily decorated local pro Nguyễn Quang Huy rising fast at the final table while the day’s entering chip leader Phạm Ngọc Tú couldn’t get much going and fell to Hoàng HảI Nam in 6th place. At five handed, Đinh was down to 9 BB and took a stand with Kd4d that paid him in full against Ngô Minh Tiến‘s QcJd. This led to the end of Ngô with KdQc outdrawn by Hoàng’s Jh10c. Hoàng proceeded to amass over half of the chips in play.

Four handed was brutal for Hoàng who watched his towers crack and fall to Fechter in 4th place. Fechter took command with nearly 2/3 of the chips at his disposal, while Đinh continued to dwindle to 9 BB. Just like Hoàng, Fechter’s big stack didn’t hold. He lost two double ups against Đinh with the first one seeing his AhAc cracked by 4h2d open ended at the flop that improved to a straight on the turn. The next double up was Ks8s both pairing up to best KcJh top pair.

With Đinh now in the driver’s seat and both Nguyễn and Fechter short stacked, he eliminated Fechter with a lucky Queen-Ten finding the Queen to dust Ace-Ten, then grinded down Nguyễn to lift his maiden victory.
