Terry Fan was born in Taiwan, and has had a live professional career which began with a cash at the WSOP Main Event in 2006, good for USD$15,504.
What followed was a 3 year results hiatus, but Fan returned in 2009 with 5th place at the APPT Cebu Main Event for over USD$30,000. 2011 saw Terry Fan visit the WSOP once again, picking up 17th place in a Holdem event for almost USD$27,000. The real breakthrough year in Fan’s career came in 2013, where he began by taking 5th place in a Los Angeles tournament for USD$40,000. In April, he bagged what is still comfortably his biggest ever score, at the Macau Poker Cup Red Dragon event. He managed to win the event for a massive prize of USD$228,121. An 11thplace at the ACOP Main Event later that year added a further USD$47,876 to his bankroll, before 8th place at another Red Dragon event in January the following year, netted him USD$24,630. The WSOP in 2015 became the site of his next big cash, when he won USD$113,452 for a 5th place finish in another Holdem event. Just a couple of months later, he was back on the Asian tour, making another final table at the APPT Manila Main Event, where he finished 4th for USD$34,803.
Terry Fan remains a popular pro, dividing his time between the WSOP and prestigious festivals on the Asian tour. He is one of the top earners in the history of Taiwanese poker players.
