The U Series of Poker (USOP) Hanoi‘s higher stakes games have once again produced a substantial prize pool, continuing the trend set by the record-breaking Superstar Challenge, just two days prior. This was followed by the High Roller Superstack and today it was the High Roller Megastack’s turn to shine.

Although the two-day event started at a slow pace, it gained momentum and concluded registration with an impressive 114 entries (64 unique). Needless to say, the initial 2BN guarantee was utterly obliterated, resulting in a multi-billion local currency prize pool of VND 7,740,600,000 (~USD 321,385).

At Day 1, many familiar Asian circuit pros graced the felt such as Triton champion Dao Minh Phu, WSOP bracelet winner Renji Mao, Florencio Campomanes, John Tech, Ewe Eng Soon, Julien Tran, Chu Anh, and Ashish Munot. Famous Japanese rockstar GACKT was also present.

The bubble burst on Teoh Ming Hong who three-bet shoved AdKd and was outdrawn by Mike Allen’s AcJs on a board 9cAh10cJc6h. Despite the pick up, the heat closed with Allen falling in 17th place for a payout of VND 139,500,000 (~USD 5,800).

Day 2 gets rolling on Wednesday, September 6, 2023 at 11:30am. Leading the pack is well known and decorated local big wig, Nguyen Quang Huy. Also advancing was USOP Vietnam Main Event champion, Nguyen Ngoc Dai with the third largest stack of 6,140,000.
