WPT Korea: China’s Fan Fan wins the Poker King Cup

 

Cards are in the air in Jeju!

The WPT National Korea is held at Jeju Maison Glad for the second consecutive time and is featuring nine different events. The festival started on sunday with the Poker King Cup event.

Poker King Cup 

The KRW550,000 buy in Poker King Cup event which concluded yesterday saw 118 entries, which generated a prize pool of KRW59,000,000 ($50,251). There were a number of recognisable names in the field, including of course, Poker King Club‘s own team of pros. Winfred Yu and Juicy Li came from Europe (EPT) to join the other Team PKC members Gaoxing, Jason Lo and Ian Brion to support the PKC namesake event.

Final table

As the tournament neared its conclusion, and the final table loomed, many of the bigger names had fallen. Poker King Club will have been pleased to see that Sixiao Juicy Li, who is a member of their team of pros, outlasted most of the field to reach the final table. Neither she, nor any of the final tablists could stand in the way of Fan Fan from Tianjing though, as he put his opponents to the sword and walked away with the trophy, merchandise, Main Event ticket for the next event in June, and the all important KRW17,136,000 ($14,598) in prize money.
