Early birds at the tables are in for a treat. In line with their past events, USOP is offering exclusive merchandise to players who have their chips in play in Level 1. For this festival, a special limited-edition hoodie awaits lucky participants. These collectibles cannot be purchased, so arriving early is crucial, as the supply is restricted to a total of just 250.

Over the past days, we’ve already seen the two USOP Main Event champions in action – USOP Taiwan Edwin Dela Cruz and USOP Vietnam Nguyen Ngoc Dai.

At the USOP, the pots only get richer. Reviewing the past runs, the inaugural USOP Taiwan Main Event paid out NTD 18M which was ~USD 600,000, this was followed by a richer prize pool of VN₫ 16.5 Billion in Hanoi, equivalent to USD 700K. For the two champions, both captured their first majors at USOP and both walked away with substantial payouts equivalent to six figure USD prizes.

The next champion could be you!
