Get ready for an exciting new poker festival coming to Da Nang, the Crown Poker Vietnam. This event is organized by the famous Korean poker player, Dong Hyun Kim (aka Tommy Kim), and is set to take place from April 21 to April 28 at the luxurious Crown Plaza Hotel in Da Nang, Vietnam.
Kim has been working on this series since the pandemic. The idea came after he saw the popularity of poker explode during Covid19. Despite its popularity, it remained inaccessible to many Koreans due to legal problems in their country. By working with other poker players and providers, Kim has created, the Crown Poker Series. This project is expected to debut in Vietnam.
From this small festival, there are high hopes that this poker tournament can grow into something much bigger!
