Truong “Tommy” Huynh Wins Inaugural PokerAtlas Tour $1.5 Million Guaranteed Title Event ($258,010)

Truong Nguyen celebrates his win in the PokerAtlas Tour Dallas Title Event

Truong “Tommy” Huynh is the last man standing in the 2023 PokerAtlas Tour Dallas series – $1,500,000 Guaranteed $1,000 Title Event

The tournament drew 1,879 entries over 10 starting flights, producing a total prize pool of $1,672,310. Huynh led one of those 10 starting flights, taking a top-five stack into Monday’s Day 2 with 150 players remaining.

Thirteen hours later, Huynh was one of nine standing, making the final table sitting third in chips. He fell to the bottom of the pack when play got short handed before beginning his ascent.

Huynh’s major defining moment of the final table came during four-handed play, when he got ace-three in for stacks against ace-king and hit a three on the river to double through then-chip-leader Cord Garcia. From there, he never looked back, eliminating all three remaining competitors within a 45-minute span.

The win is Huynh’s largest of his career. Before the final table began, he told the PokerAtlas Tour staff that his largest career score came at the Rio Las Vegas for 84k. He said his goal was to win the tournament, and he made good on that goal tonight.

Furthermore, Huynh’s win bookends a series where his close friend Johnny Donnelly took down the opening event of the series — the $500 Dallas Duel $1 million guaranteed — for $164k.
