INTRODUCE

I was introduced to Texas Holdem from a classmate when I was studying in National Taiwan University.
Not only having a lot of fun, but I also had financial benefit through the game.
That was the turning point for me to start thinking about becoming a pro poker player.
After serving military, I moved to Macau in 2012 to play games in Wynn.
At the beginning of my tournaments, I often lost and spent much time to research through playing online.
I finally had my first live title in March, 2016 and after three days, I became the Main Event Champion.
After that, I kept playing live tournaments and had my biggest live tournament win in September, 2016.
I was entitled as APOY (Asian Player of the Year) and was sponsored by Pokerstars in 2017.
