The more than 30-year-old tournament has been organised by Nhan Dan (People) newspaper and is considered by most players as a platform to start their professional career, according to Le Quoc Khanh, head of the organisation board.

In its 2014 edition, the winners will receive a total bonus of VND200 million (US$9,500), double that of last year.— VNS
