No Limit Hold'em - Knockout (Event #1)
Yu Liang is a Chinese national, and not what you would describe as a professional poker player, with almost all of his live cashes coming in the local region of Macau. He did travel to the U.S for the WSOP in 2015, but plays most of his tournaments closer to home.
The first cash Liang recorded came in 2011, when he finished 4th in the Asian Poker King High Roller, for USD$31,566. The following year, he added an 8th place at the Macau Poker Cup Red Dragon tournament, which was good for $13,354. November 2014 saw the first life changing score for Liang, with the ACOP series providing the opportunity. Liang took 2nd place in the High Roller event, winning $453,242 in the process. March 2015 saw him add a further $33,581 for 5th place in a Macau Poker Cup side event. May 2015 saw another huge score for Liang, when he won the APPT Macau High Roller, for $321,477. The following month, Liang set off for Las Vegas, where he recorded his first WSOP cash, totalling $7,559. Yu Liang continues to be active in live tournaments in Macau, and has a total of $982,379 in live cashes.
