Flying High: Hai Nguyen wins the Main Event in Stacked Adelaide Poker Festival

Hai Nguyen is the 2023 champion of the Stacked Adelaide Poker Festival Main Event, after making a spontaneous last-minute decision to fly in all the way from Cairns, with his bold move paying off.

Following a strong performance on Day 1A to grind his way to the final day, Nguyen’s stack rocketed up after denting the stack of the final table chipleader, Chris Edgar, beating his pocket Queens with a set of Tens, and continued to chip away at the stacks.

Nguyen saw to the eliminations of three players on the final table, and was in great form as he eventually outlasted a field of 177 total entries to collect $70,000 and his first major championship title.

His win has rounded off what has been an entertaining week of high-level tournament poker at Stacked Social, a great series of exciting and innovative events, and we can’t wait to see what Stacked Poker has in store for the future!

Congratulations to the Main Event Champion Hai Nguyen, and the Director of Stacked Poker, Andrew Michael, on another brilliantly run, high calibre tournament!
