Win Poker announces VND 3B Guarantee National Poker Champions 6

National Poker Champions is a local festival that is progressively making a name for itself in the Vietnamese poker scene.

Poker clubs only started to open their doors in mid-2016, but Win Poker is already about to kickoff the 6th edition of the National Poker Champions.

The festival will take place from December 7th to 16th  across three locations.


Main Event – VND3B GTD

As in previous editions of this festival, players have a choice of different locations for Day 1 of the VND11M buy-in Main Event (US$469.78) in Da Nang, Ha Noi and Ho Chi Minh City. Day 2 and the Final Day will be played out in Da Nang.

Unlike previous editions however, Win Poker did not have to look for a partner in Ho Chi Minh City to host the starting flights, as they had recently opened their own club in this location.
