Natural8.com has announced Vietnamese poker pro Thai Ha as their new brand ambassador. Thai Ha has proven his skills on the live poker circuit by cashing over $2.3 million so far.
As a resident of Pennsylvania, almost all of his 123 cashes on HendonMob are from the U.S. Only two cashes are from Asia, from the 2019 WPT Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City. Thai Ha had small scores in the Kick-off event and the VND 25M WPTDeepStacks Main Event.
“I am looking forward to playing the rest of the WSOPC events. The $1,000 WSOP Super Circuit Series Main Event with $5 million guaranteed will be very exciting, but I will save my run good for the $25,000 High Roller Championship with $10 million guaranteed.”
Ha discovered poker when he was 19 years old and initially played for fun with dimes and quarters during college. He moved on to playing virtual tables to which he now returns on Natural8.com, and you can find him there under his moniker “Thai Ha”. Joining Natural8’s Team Hot roster, Ha has previously battled against several of his fellow ambassadors on the international poker circuit.
“So far, I have played against many of them, but mostly against Danny Tang and Michael Soyza during the MILLIONS Super High Roller Series in Sochi earlier this year. I have also played against Kitty Kuo during the WPT Five Diamond at the Bellagio. They are all friendly, fun to be around and very good at poker. That was also part of why I wanted to join the team, so I can learn from my fellow ambassadors.”
There is one specific poker variant in which Ha has excelled in. Ever since Short Deck became popular thanks to the Triton Poker high stakes tournaments, Ha has specialized in that. He came close to winning a WSOP bracelet in the first two WSOP Short Deck events, in which he finished runner-up both times.
What makes Short Deck so fascinating for him?
“It has the most fun, fast and addicting action. That being said, I still like No Limit Hold’em tournaments and a mix of some Pot-Limit Omaha cash games,” Ha said.
When playing online, Ha usually runs six tables of mid stakes or four tables of higher stakes with buy-ins of more than $2,000. His home setup contains three connected screens and a gaming chair – the perfect combination for online grinding.
“The Natural8 software makes me feel more relaxed; it is more like playing a video game instead of poker. Being able to squeeze the river cards are fun as well, and the staking platform is also unique and easy to use. What gets me excited is the sound system, especially the all-in sound!”
The WSOP Circuit Online Series on Natural8 is still running until 31st May with plenty of chances to join Thai Ha, other ambassadors and big names in the poker world at the tables.
