A Star In The Making: Deep Raina Extends His Scoring Streak At Poker Dream 7 Vietnam 2023

Vietnam has been the biggest hunting ground for Indian players. Following  the conclusion of the USOP Hanoi 2023 and the VSOP Championship IX,  poker players are now focused on the Poker Dream 7 Vietnam 2023, which is currently being held at Hoi An’s luxurious Hoiana Resort & Golf.

Running from September 29 to October 8, Poker Dream 7 featuring a massive VND 40 Billion GTD and 27 trophy events is now in its final stage and the anticipation is soaring as it nears its climax.

While the Indian participation in the series is relatively modest, Team India’s Deep Raina is creating ripples. Displaying his effective MTT strategy, Raina has cashed seven tournaments during the series. His accumulated winnings in the series stand at an impressive VND 239.80 Million (INR 8.18 Lac).
