USOP Hanoi 2023: Abhinav Iyer Wins Mini High Roller

After a span of four years, Indian poker dynamo Abhinav Iyer has shipped the Mini High Roller event at the U Series of Poker (USOP) 2023 Hanoi. The event saw the World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner nail the title and trophy after beating heads up rival Pierre Husson. Iyer had a payday of VND 830,000,000 (~ ₹28.50 Lakh) for his first place finish. The runner-up took home VND 515,600,000. 

When it comes to the final table, two other Indian pros also made quite the splash. Amit Kaushik and Anuj Yadav were among the final table contenders. Kaushik finished fourth for VND 206,000,000 (~ ₹7 Lakh) and Yadav added VND 135,000,000 (~ ₹4.6 Lakh) for his sixth place finish. 

Final Hand of Mini High Roller

In the final hand of the USOP 2023 Hanoi Mini High Roller, Husson went all-in with 65s and Iyer called holding pocket kings. The chip lead was more than 3:1 and Iyer was looking to end the game with this hand. The dealer fanned out a board of 4 Q 7 4 5 . This gave Iyer two pairs (KK, 44) and his first trophy in four years. Finally, Iyer was crowned the champion of the Mini High Roller event. 

This VND 33,000,000 (~USD 1,395) event had a guarenteed prize pool of VND 1,000,000,000 (~USD 41,520). The final prize pool was VND 2,793,600 (~USD 115,990) thanks to 96 total entries (69 unique). The top 14 places were paid in this Mini High Roller tourney.

Talking about the Mini High Roller event, it wasn’t an easy one for Iyer to nail. He was down to his last 11 big blinds (BB) at the final table. The Indian pro picked up steam after knocking out Sebastian Mueller with his set of threes.

Mueller left in the 8th position and Iyer was not looking back. The Indian pro was on fire and ended the game for three other players, namely, Dinh Quang Vu (5th), Amit Kaushik (4th), and Pham Bao (3rd). 

With such a spectacular game, we hope to see Iyer ship more live titles in the coming time. Not just these Indian pros, we also have Kunal Patni making the final table in Event 3 Deepstack Turbo. Unfortunatley, the pro couldn’t ship this one and finished fourth for VND 39,000,000 (~ ₹1,33,952).
