Building up momentum on the preceding days, the series finale  of U Series of Poker (USOP) was packed to the hilt on Day 7 of games as players poured in for the star attraction, the VN₫ 15 Billion guaranteed MAIN EVENT. Taking place at Furama Resort Danang, Vietnam, the much awaited event dusted the pages of history with a roaring 308 entries. This was the largest Day 1A turnout of the brand and if the pace continues, expect another seven figure USD prize pool.

Just under 13 hours of play, Main Event Freeroll ticket winner Ka Shun Tsang was  eliminated on the bubble by Nguyen Quang Huy. Tsang was down to 4 bb when he shoved with 8s8d that lost the flip against 10d9s. The remaining 39 players bagged up led by South Korea’s Hwany Lee with a massive 100 bb stack. Other notables advancing were Gyeong Byeong Lee, Wong Tung Wing, and two-time side event champion Romain Bier’s.

Up next is Day 1B which takes place on Friday, November 24, 2023 starting at 12pm. Registration closes at 7:10pm. This event plays down to ITM of 12.5% of the field. Check the player guide for all the info and tournament structure.
