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.

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.

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.
