The Deepstack was another phased event featuring a guarantee of VN 2,000,000,000 (~US$ 82,288) and a couple of buy ins to choose from over three flights. A total of 241 jumped in with 32 players advancing to Day 2.

Topping Flight A was Vietnam’s Phung Thanh Quang who delivered the bubble when his As10h outdrew Young Shang Bing‘s AhQc on a board 10c6h4sKc5c.

At Flight B, Chen Zeyu amassed his big stack by knocking out several players that included Huynh Ngoc Cuong and Yashiro Naoki. Against Naoki, Chen’s QcQh held over Ac5h.

At Flight C, Dong Kyu Kim eliminated Alan Wong on the bubble with Ac9d straight against Qh8c two pair on a board 5s7c6c8h5d. Kim closed the heat as chip leader.


Returning to action for Day 2, both Kim and Chen fell back to back in 16th and 15th place while Phung went on to reach the final table where he eventually faced Chinese pro Yun Sheng Sun at heads up. Sun led 2:1 at the start.

During the forty-five minute grind, Phung slowly shaved down Sun’s stack to steal the lead and switch the counts with Qc2c on a board 10c6dQd2s9h besting Sun’s 9d8d. Phung closed it out with Kh4h over 9d3h on a King-high board.
