No Limit Hold'em (Event #8)
Lester Edoc is a professional poker player from the Philippines, and has been one of the most liked and respected players in the Asian circuit. He is regularly featured in tournament live reporting for the last five years or so.
The first live cash finish Lester Edoc notched was back in 2009, where he placed 3rd in an Asian Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) Cebu side event for USD$5,211. Over the next four years, he posted a multitude of four figure cashes, mostly on the Asian Poker Tour (APT). It wasn’t until October 2013 that Edoc finally got his big moment when he got 2nd place at the APT Manila Main Event. He probably wished he could have gone one place further but it was still an excellent achievement, especially since he took home USD$56,299 as prize money. This undoubtedly spurred him on to his next achievement in February 2014 when won a side event at APT Cebu, banking USD$11,970 in the process.
Early 2015 saw Edoc once again taking victories in APT side events, winning USD$7,386 for his win on January 31st, and USD$8,480 for another victory on February 2nd. In April 2015 Edoc demonstrated that his abilities weren’t limited to Holdem, when he won a PLO side event at APT Manila, winning USD$6,550. The end of 2015 saw another big moment in the career of Edoc, as he took down the IPO3 Main Event, and added a career best score of USD$59,400 to his all time cashes.
The year 2016 saw Edoc winning two events at Metro Card Club and 2 side events in the very last APPT Manila – the PLO event and the High Roller event for US$25,414 and US$ 31,782, respectively.
Lester Edoc is one of the rising stars of Philippine poker and is a member of Poker King Club Team Poker Pro.
