Las Vegas, 1 July 2015 – Shaun McCamley, President of Ho Tram Resort Casino and Andrew W Scott, CEO of World Players Entertainment (WPE) – poker operations partner of the Ho Tram Resort Casino – today announced the inaugural Vietnam Poker Cup (VPC) will be held at Ho Tram Resort Casino from 21 to 23 August 2015.

Following on from the tremendous success of APT Vietnam in May, which was the nation’s first ever international poker festival, the VPC is Vietnam’s first truly home grown poker event and demonstrates Ho Tram Resort Casino’s commitment to ensuring poker’s long-term prosperity in Vietnam.

With the VPC set to become an ongoing series run multiple times each year, VPC1 will feature a US$550 buy-in Main Event and a US$1,100 High Roller tournament and other events with buy-ins ranging from US$55 to US$275.

VPC1 represents a unique opportunity for one player to stamp their name in the history books as the very first winner of the Vietnam Poker Cup.

Making this special announcement from the floor of the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, Mr Scott said, “This is the beginning of something that will last for many years to come. The Vietnam Poker Cup is a historic event with the winner’s name to forever be etched in glory.

“It is also a major milestone for Ho Tram Resort Casino as Vietnam’s first home grown poker event and while it is open to all holders of non-Vietnamese passports we are sure it will become a must-play event for those non-Vietnamese passport holders living in Ho Chi Minh City and elsewhere throughout Vietnam.”

Mr McCamley said, “It is very exciting to be able to host the Vietnam Poker Cup. 2015 has been a tremendous year for poker at Ho Tram with the launch of the Ho Tram Poker Room quickly followed by APT Vietnam which received great feedback from all players in attendance.

“Now with the Vietnam Poker Cup joining our rapidly expanding list of events, it shows we are fully committed to supporting and ensuring the long term success of poker here at Ho Tram Resort Casino.”

The APT Vietnam event held earlier this year was attended by a number of players of Vietnamese heritage, including WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star winner Nam Le and well known Los Angeles-based professional poker player Phong “Turbo” Nguyen, who was born just 30km from Ho Tram Resort Casino near Vung Tau.

Turbo said, “The Asian Poker Tour event in May at Ho Tram was fantastic – I’m looking forward to the first Vietnam Poker Cup and seeing it become a regular fixture on the Ho Tram calendar.”

The inaugural Vietnam Poker Cup will be sponsored by Ho Chi Minh-based poker training and media website SoMuchPoker.com. CEO Mr Loic Muller said, “We are proud to be a partner of this event. We strongly believe that Vietnam will play an important role in the Asian poker scene in the next few years. Events like the Vietnam Poker Cup organized with international standards are crucial to the growth of the game in the country.”

Ho Tram Resort Casino’s five star hotel, The Grand, is offering a deeply discounted poker player rate of just US$119 per night (US$139 per night with international five star buffet breakfast). Both rates include free WiFi internet access throughout the entire Ho Tram Resort Casino complex.

Bookings can be made by contacting Ho Tram Resort Casino on +84 64 378 8022 or by emailing reservations@thegrandhotram.com.
