With the Main Event underway, at the side games, another three players walked away proud owners of inaugural Hanoi Super Series trophies. The biggest winner of the batch was Megastack champion Đinh Đức Linh. Linh has now taken command of the HSS Player of the Series race. Joining him on the pedestal were Roller Single Day winner Teddy Pham and the first Korea Mind Game Member (KMGM) champion, Kyungjin Lee who topped the Superstack Turbo. We’ve got those results for you down below.
The ongoing festival is the first of its kind with games running from November 28 to December 5 at the Grand Loyal Poker Club. This is the club’s last big series of the year so make sure to come out and try to grab one of the last remaining trophies.
Player of the Series leaderboard
The Player of the Series race is heating up with a new face up top. Đinh Đức Linh has overtaken Đinh Quang Huy after his victory at the Megastack. There are plenty of points to be earned with a total of 10 point generating events scheduled. At the end of the series, the player with the most points accrued will win a special trophy and a ticket worth ₫8,800,000 to the WPC II Kick Off Event. Second in points will receive $100 and a special trophy. To qualify, players must have participated in at least three point-generating events, satellites are not included.
Event 3: Megastack ₫1B gtd – ĐINH ĐỨC LINH – ₫370,000,000 (~$15,185)
The second HSS event with a guarantee extended was the Megastack with ₫1B in tow, and with 177 turning up, it easily broke past that figure for a richer prize pool of ₫1,373,520,000. The top 22 shaved respective cuts with Vietnam’s Đinh ĐứC Linh deserving the largest piece for his victory. Linh pocketed a career high ₫370,000,000 (~$15,185), and his known live event title. The achievement also earned Linh the top spot in the Player of the Series race.

TEDDY PHAM breaks the runner up curse at the High Roller Single Day
A very familiar face made headlines, Pham Quyet Tien aka Teddy Pham, who bested the 42 runners of the High Roller Single Day. Pham is no stranger to final tables but winning has been a challenge with four runner up finishes at previous festivals. That curse has now been lifted with a trophy to commemorate the special moment. To seize the win, the final 3 players struck a deal then flipped for it. Luck was on Pham’s side for his first victory this year. Watch the final table race via the Grand Loyal Poker Club facebook page.
