In Guo Dong short poker tournament career, he has achieved more than many players have in 5 years of playing. His excellent form has seen him quickly rise to become one of the most successful players to emerge from China in recent years.
Guo Dong‘s biggest cash to date was when he placed 29th in the WSOP 2014 Main Event for USD$230,487. November of the same year saw further success for Guo at the ACOP festival, where he took 9th place in the ACOP Warm Up Event and took home almost USD$20,000. Two days later, he finished 26th in the ACOP Main Event for just over USD$26,000. July 2015 led to another deep run in the WSOP Main Event, where Guo finished 199th for USD$40,433.
