In the same ACOP series, he also won the Deepstack Event for USD$5,499.

With Wu’s 2016 amazing performance, it was but natural that he was named Asia Player of the Year claiming 9,492 point throughout the year. Players all over Asia definitely keep an eye out whenever Wu enters the playing field as he is becoming one of Asia’s fastest rising stars.
