The eagerly-awaited U Series of Poker returns to Hanoi, Vietnam in what promises to be a thrilling festival featuring VND 32 billion — equivalent to USD 1.33 million in guaranteed prize pools.
This is VND 7 billion more than its previous visit and the largest announced by the brand.
For those just hearing of USOP, the young brand emerged into the live scene in February 2023, presenting its style of poker to players in Taiwan. Curious to see what the brand had to offer, players poured in for an impressive 1,043 Main Event field. Due to its success, the brand instantly earned itself a spot in players’ calendars.
In April, USOP delivered another smashing festival, this time in Hanoi, Vietnam. It surpassed Taiwan’s numbers with higher attendance and larger festival prize pool of VND 56.9 billion, roughly USD 2.4 million.
Players are competing for 38 trophy events, of which 15 feature guaranteed prize pools, top-notch high roller action with six events offered, and two new events to conquer.
A long list of players have confirmed their participation including sponsored high roller, Vietnamese Triton Poker champion Dao Minh Phu. He has also confirmed his attendance at the Heads Up Challenge.
Other players to expect are USOP Taiwan Main Event champion, Edwin dela Cruz of the Philippines, compatriot Dave Erquiaga and reigning USOP Vietnam Main Event champion Nguyen Ngoc Dai.
The games run from 1 to 11 September 2023 at the Crown Poker Club.
