Welcome to the electrifying world of poker, where Vietnam's very own Julien Tran has ascended to the ranks of ambassadors for Natural8's "Team Hot." Joining an elite group of accomplished players like Danny Tang, Kitty Kuo, Thai Ha, Kannapong Tent, and Eric Tsai, Tran is poised to ignite the online poker scene in Vietnam with unbridled passion and relentless determination.

In a recent interview, Tran expressed his excitement about the partnership, exclaiming, "I am thrilled to collaborate with Natural8 and play a pivotal role in expanding Vietnam's online poker community. The potential and enthusiasm in this country are boundless, and I am committed to nurturing and developing the game here."

Tran's impeccable reputation within Vietnam's poker fraternity is well-deserved, backed by an impressive track record. His total live cashes amount to a staggering $471,513, securing him the 13th spot on Hendon Mob's prestigious Vietnam All Time Money List. Among his many conquests, a standout achievement occurred at the illustrious Asian Poker Tour (APT) Phu Quoc 2023, where he emerged as the runner-up in the exhilarating VND 30,000,000 + 3,000,000 No Limit Hold'em - Main Event, raking in an impressive $99,453.

But that's not all. Tran's winning spree continued its blazing momentum when he claimed the first-place prize of $46,239 at the NLHE - Super Stars Challenge (VSOP Championship VII in Hanoi) just days before his remarkable APT Phu Quoc performance. In fact, the year 2023 has been nothing short of a triumph for Tran, with a total of six cashes amounting to a remarkable $233,267. Notably, he secured three coveted first-place finishes, including two victories at the VSOP Championship VII and one triumph at the prestigious Crown Poker Series - Da Nang.

A spokesperson from Natural8 couldn't contain their excitement about Tran's addition to the team, saying, "We were immediately captivated by Tran's extraordinary skill set and his unwavering passion for the game. With his inclusion in our esteemed group of ambassadors, alongside Eric Tsai and Kannapong Tent, we are eager to collaborate closely with him."

Julien Tran's induction into Team Hot serves as a testament to his exceptional talent, unwavering dedication, and profound impact on Vietnam's vibrant poker landscape. As he embarks on this thrilling journey with Natural8, a future brimming with endless possibilities awaits. Brace yourself for an exhilarating ride as Tran's indomitable spirit sets the online poker world ablaze.
