Poker Dream 7 Vietnam: 50 More Players Move to Day 2 with Yashiro Naoki in the Lead

The big poker tournament at the fancy Hoiana Resort & Golf in Hoi An, Vietnam, is happening now. It’s called the Poker Dream 7 Vietnam Main Event, and they’re giving away ₫20 Billion (about US$820,000) to the winner. Six out of ten starting games have already happened, and 75 players have made it to Day 2. A player from Japan, Yashiro Naoki, has the most chips right now and is in the lead.

Today, there are four flights for poker games. Some have short rounds, and one is really fast at midnight. If players win, they’ll come back on December 7 to play again at 1:00 in the afternoon.

Main Event Day 1D, 1E and 1F Recap

The first flight of the day of Poker Dream 7 Vietnam lasted for more than eleven hours before only 35 players remained out of the initial 228. The bigger group played for fourteen rounds with 40-minute turns, and Japan’s Yashiro Naoki moved up the rankings after eliminating two players in one go. Yashiro started with a strong hand (King of Spades and King of Hearts) and made the final call. This quickly removed both opponents from the game. A bit later, the flight ended when Oleg Titov lost, with Tran Thanh Van having a better hand (Ace of Hearts and 7 of Spades) for the victory.

On the first day of Poker Dream 7 Vietnam, there were 119 people who joined a 30-minute flying game. Only 10% or 12 of them made it to the next day. Late at night, the player with the most chips, Lee Wai Huen, increased his stack by a lot in just one round.

Lee started with a low number of chips, but by the thirteenth round, he had doubled them with a Queen of Hearts and a Queen of Flowers. Then, in a few rounds, he doubled his chips again by using a 9 of Spades and a 9 of Flowers against Nguyen Thanh Long’s Jack of Diamonds and Jack of Spades. Lee got lucky on the last card and won the game. He also eliminated the last two players with low chips to end the game.
