The Ho Tram Resort Casino in Vietnam is to host a second edition of the Vietnam Poker Cup – from October 16 to 18 – due to “player demand”.
The inaugural event ran from August 21 to 23.
“In announcing Vietnam Poker Cup 2 we are responding to player demand for more professionally run poker tournaments at Ho Tram and living up to our promise to make this a regular event on the Asian poker calendar,” said Andrew W. Scott, chief executive of World Players Entertainment, the organiser of the event.
The company describes the Vietnam Poker Cup as Vietnam’s “premier home grown poker event”. It features buy-ins ranging from US$55 to the US$1,100 High Roller event, with the highlight being the US$550 Vietnam Poker Cup Main Event.
Shaun McCamley, president of Ho Tram Resort Casino, said in the statement announcing the new edition of the event: “The Ho Tram Poker Room has come a long way since opening here… earlier this year and we are pleased to see that our commitment to supporting and ensuring the long term success of poker is already helping the game to flourish.”
The resort’s poker room launched on April 18. Its first major event was by the Asian Poker Tour, which held an APT Vietnam tournament at the resort from May 6 to 13.
In February, World Players Entertainment was appointed poker operations partner of Ho Tram Resort Casino. The firm is responsible for the day-to-day running of the Ho Tram Poker Room including cash games and tournaments, according to Tuesday’s press release.
