Event #7: The Super Deep Stack Turbo, which had 49 entries, was shipped by Vietnamese player Mai Bien. The player defeated the 3:1 chip-leader Lee Jun Woo Korea to grab the top prize worth VN₫ 224,320,000.00 (US$9,646.00).

The final hand took place when Mai called a pre-flop raise by Lee. The flop was J J 9 and both players checked. The turn card showed T and Mai checked while Lee raised. Mai then thought about his next move but called Lee’s raise. After a T appeared on the river, Mai checked, and Lee shoved. Mai tank called, and at showdown, both players’ cards went face up. Unfortunately Lee couldn’t improve his straight draw with cards Q 3 while Mai showed K T , giving him a full house with jacks and tens.
