No Limit Hold'em - Short Deck (Event #9)
Ho Chi Minh
Given the way that Ka Cheong (KC) Wong put up a spirited fight for the 2015 Asian Player of the Year title, you could be forgiven for thinking he had been around the live circuit for several years. In fact, this poker pro from Hong Kong is still relatively new to live tournament poker.
KC Wong’s first cash came in April 2013, and he posted a consistent stream of four figure scores through the next 12months, before finally adding something a little bigger to his list of cashes. The 2014 Macau Millions saw him pick up a 5th place for USD$19,651 and in August of the same year, he followed that result up with victory in a side event at the Macau Poker Cup, which was good for USD$16,668. The end of 2014 also saw Wong make two final tables on the APPT for a total of over USD$25,000 combined. April 2015, and once again, Wong was making headway on the APPT, winning a side event in Seoul for USD$15,863. Another side event victory followed in May, before 4th place in the APPT Manila High Roller netted him USD$17,219. In November of 2015, KC Wong bagged his biggest cash to date, when he finished 11th place at the ACOP Main Event for almost USD$53,000. His consistency on the APPT almost won him the Player of the Year title, and he has certainly shown that he is a player to watch in the coming years.
