The evening saw a full house with a strong field of 29 members. Excitement was in the air, and as the field thinned, every all-in was the center of attention, along with cheers and sighs. At the end of the evening, the HKPPA committee hand-picked three members to represent the association to play in the MBP Jade Series. Let's have a look at who they are:
Jalen Ng – 31-y.o. Jalen works in sports apparel merchandising. He has been playing poker for five years, mostly with his friends. He is very excited by the prospect of tournament poker in Macau. He loves poker mostly because it is one of the few things in life one could succeed on one's own, a welcome contrast to the everyday worklife.
Clayton Koo - 24-y.o. Clayton started playing poker two years ago. He has played some live cash games in London and is looking forward to playing in Macau. He enjoys the analytical aspect of poker. He also loves the way players try to outthink each other, making the game very challenging and interesting.
Jimmy Yip – 38-y.o. Jimmy is a semi-professional poker player and has been playing for 7 years. Poker has taken him around the world, including trips to Macau, South Korea, the US, Canada, Australia. Globetrotting is exactly what he loves about poker, as it allows him to meet different and interesting people.
We wish them the best of luck at the Jade Series! And once again, MBP would like to thanks HKPPA for organizing this friendly game to raise awareness about our upcoming tournament in Macao!
