Day 1A & 1B Turbo Recap

Day 1A’s last few tables saw Kick Off final tablist Ta Son Tung hold a sizable lead less than ten left through the money. Ta’s massive stack which is close to 4x the average chip count, racked up to be the top ranking stack moving on to the Final Day. Following closely behind is Korea Mind Game Members’ Lee Seok Young with another big stack, ranking 2nd amongst the Final Day qualifiers. The flight capped with Jodi Nguyen KdQh delivering the bubble, having spiked top pair vs Ac10h

Nearly an hour later, the event’s Day 1B Turbo qualifier closed in with Korea’s Kim Beab Su topping the field following a crucial hand against local Nguyen Ngoc Dai. On a three-bet pot, Nguyen paid all three streets and proceeded to throw it in the muck after Kim showed top pair, best kicker on an Ace-high board. The qualifier then quickly wrapped up after High Roller champion Nguyen Trung Ha pulled a massive bluff three-way, only to run into pocket Queens for his tournament life.
