Profile

Marc Rivera is a highly respected poker pro from the Philippines.  He has spent years developing his poker knowledge at the cash game tables. This remains his key area of expertise, despite having a few tournament results dotted around over the last 8 years.  Some of these results include some five figure scores with three large ones earned in 2018.

Rivera picked up over US$10,000 for his first ever live tournament cash, when he finished 16th in the Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) Manila Main Event in March 2010. In August of the following year, Rivera banked another US$6,740 having finished at 10th place in the Asian Poker Tour (APT) Manila Main Event.

In April 2012, he picked up his first ever tournament victory when he took 1st place in the APT Manila PLO Side Event for US$5,950. This was followed, 3 months after, with another victory in the APT Macau Deep Stack Turbo for US$12,568.

Several four figure scores followed, before he took home US$27,400 for 3rd place at the International Poker Open (IPO) Main Event in November 2015.

In 2017, Rivera finally cashed in a tournament outside the Asian region.  In July of that year, Rivera placed 457th at the 48th World Series of Poker (WSOP) Championship Main Event in Las Vegas for US$27,743. He is one of the very few Filipinos who has ever made it In-the-Money for the most prestigious event in the industry.

Returning to the WSOP in 2018, Rivera upped his achievements further, cashing in 3 events. He placed 551st at the Main Event to add another US$23,940 and more to his tournament earnings. Carrying the WSOP emotional high back with him to the Philippines, he won his first major tournament at APPT Manila. He topped the 829-entry field of the APPT National event and pocketed his largest-ever live tournament win of US$85,940. This huge victory also rewarded him with a PokerStars Players Championship Platinum Pass worth US$30,000.

The hot streak continued. In late August, he finished second at the Metro Card Club 2M Guaranteed and in the following month, another runner-up finish, this one at the Super High Rollers event of the APT Philippines Championships for US$38,700.

Marc Rivera became a member of Poker King Club (PKC) Team Pro at the start of 2016.  He is currently a Metro Card Club Team Pro.
