Yuguang Li's 24 hour winning-spree in Macau
Macau, MPC22 Red Dragon Main Event, Yuguang Li.
Posted on Monday, March 16, 2015 by "T".
Yuguang Li, a 36 year old businessman, had a fantastic run at the poker tables in Macau last Friday. Li started by winning the MPC22 Red Dragon Main Event which had gathered a field of 987 players. The first place gave him some $238,000 USD but instead of celbrating the win, Li jumped straight in to the poker action in the MPC22 HK$80,000 High Roller event which proved to be the right thing to do since he managed to win this one too and bag another $219,000 USD.
The MPC22 HK$80,000 High Roller event had only 67 players in total. Among the starting field some known poker prfiles could be seen including Mikal Blomlie, Daniel Laidlaw and Rono Lo.

| I have never heard of this guy before but there are a lot of Chinese businessmen who are very very rich and seem to be playing poker just for the gambling buzz rather than the money.It must be quite difficult to play against that sort of player when you know that 100k means very little to them.|

| Is a good run, a good sequencie of results, but like klash23 said this guy dont play to win money they just play to win, and dont care with the money that they put or win, is a gambling thing for them, but win 2 times in a row is good, but not for all times, one time maybe is good, the lucky isnt all of his side all the time.|

| What a crazy twenty four hours this guy has had. Most poker players wait a lifetime to win one of these tournaments but to win two in one day is just phenomenal, congrats to him again|

| I think the tournament poker is the kind of poker in which you need a lot of luck and really big run of good cards to win it.|
I watched a lot of tournament professionals and they all said their tactic is just play only good hands when you are deep, and when you get shallow just find spots for all-in and hope you win

| The mysterious, evasive, and unexplainable -- "Good run"|

| Yuguang Li's 24 hour winning-spree in Macau does sound like an awesome muay thai snuff film produced by Shaw Brothers Studio in Hong Kong. Of course I never ever heard any of these names (called out) in any live poker tourey, but I guess I have a small sample.|
