The 21-year-old player, who is considered a billiards prodigy, defeated Nguyen Ngoc Tri of Binh Duong 40-12 in the final after 14 innings.
Earlier, Cho, who is world rank 13 and has won three bronze medals at world championships, beat world number eight Tran Quyet Chien in the quarter-finals and then Nguyen Quoc Nguyen in the semi-finals.
Chien grabbed a world championship bronze in February and was crowned the winner of the International three-Cushion Billiards Tournament last year, coming from behind to beat Kang Dong Koong of South Korea 40-30 for the title.
Cho won the prize of VND60 million (US$2,600). He also won the award for the player who scored the most points in a run.
Seventy-five local and international players competed in the event.
