She came to note as the winner of The Gaming Club World Poker Championship in Dublin during 2004, which was played in pot limit format. In her qualifying heat she outlasted Peter Costa, Robert Williamson III, Ben Roberts and John Cernuto to progress to the final where she defeated Joe Beevers in the final heads-up confrontation to take home the €250,000 ($302,477) first prize. In August 2005, Pham made the final table of the VC Poker Cup, won by Tony Bloom.
