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.
