The Chinese poker player Longyun Li won his first live cash tournament last Friday.
The amount that he won was not a lower amount, but was a decent take home amount. Li whittled the challenge posed by 490 contenders at the Poker King Cup Macau Main Event to eventually take home $157,259 in prize money. This is his biggest win so far and he is very much excited about winning the main event in Macau. He had not got six-figure money earnings so far in his live poker career.
The final two players who faced each other at the final table were Li and Malaysian Michael Soyza. They were both evenly stacked and this promised for an exciting matchup between the two. There was a deal struck by the players when they reached the heads-up. They took to the Independent Chip Model to work on a strategy for the prize pool chop.
Soyza was in the lead with a slender margin and had a guaranteed prize of HK$1.135.000 whereas Li received HK$1, 101,000.The two players then went on to play for the extra 5 percent of the prize pool that will earn them the all-important main event title.

The poker man from Las Vegas, Ted Forrest, dropped out of the college to play in the professional poker league.
His decision was a right one as he is one of the most renowned poker players the country has ever seen. He has 6 WSOP bracelets under his belt so far and is still hungry for more. The love and passion for the game show up whenever he hit the poker table. The feat of winning 6 bracelets is a very big thing and it would be difficult for many players to replicate the performance and show that he has put up so far in his career.
The best achievement of Ted Forrest till date is winning three bracelets in one year. Even though Ted is regarded as one of the best poker players, he has not won a bracelet for some years now. He was able to play at his best in 2014 and won against Phil Hellmuth and this was one of his best performances recently. Winning over Phil was a big achievement as Phil is the proud owner of 14 bracelets, which is no mean feat. Continue reading Forrest Hungry For More Poker Success
