Normal, that poker is more than just luck. You can not be a good poker player only with luck. Professional or experienced players they will crush you, if you think you can win only with luck. Is impossible in live games. In online poker you need more luck is true. That PSPC Platinum Pass of $ 30.000 is very interesting and this player have a chance for more money in Bahamas.

Well, it is always impressive for anyone under any circomstances to win a tournament that has a field of 1000+ players. Even if for some strange reason most of them would be total donks, you're still up against at least a few very good and solid players. Well done by Wilson Lim.

Lim said, "Before I came to the final table, there were two tables and I had less than one big blind, so I just went all-in blind. I doubled and doubled until I was a big stack."

The big stack Yuan Chao Li took advantage of his position, bullying everybody all the way until the heads-up match.

I really want to watching video this match, to know what their opponent hand , sound so easy for them took opponent chip, lol. Many time I met opponent act like Yuan Chao Li, but when I had premium hand and call the villain shove, I lost to his crap card. LUCK dominate or skill in that case ?

A tournament with relatively small prizes. At first i thought, it was US dollars,
till i noticed the currency and the read the list with the winners and the money Smile
But nevertheless a quarter of a million is a great prize.
That must has a very good value also. Whatever that pass is Smile

well yeah I have to agree with dudes and dudettes in saying that to pocket a quarter of a million by playing poker really qualifies as a great day. especially when you calculate your overall win loss balance and happen to that quarter of a million ahead

Poor guy gonna be taxed into oblivion though - Singapore is not joking with these kind of stuff. Hope he is gonna set up residency in a tax paradise after this if he did not do it yet.

I do not know how taxes are in singapore but for cars, taxes are huge. Singapore traffic has become fluid because the tax is 31,000 euros or 50.000 dollars. Is a very interesting decision but very good. Important is the fact as this player will remain with a good sum of money and will play in Bahamas, will also enjoy a vacation.

of course this is a wonderful win ... the number of players was very large and it was very difficult to be on the first revenge .... and in the end he won ... a hero .... but it seems to me that the winnings amount is very large and his efforts paid off. ... but luck is also needed in such tournaments

In pokerstars i had the opportunity to win two sit and go with 15 and 25 chips but is poker online not live. If you win few hands one after another ( all in ) you can go back into the game, then to win the tournament. but is very hard and you must to have only luck.
