Feng Zhao wins HK$310,400 in the Macau Billionaire Poker Jade Series I

The Macau Billionaire Poker, which only opened this year, just finished with its 2nd Event offering for the year.  The previous event, The 2016 Summer Showdown, which guaranteed HK$1,000,000, was won by Gary Yue who amassed an impressive 1st prize of HK$271,600.

The 2nd offering named the MBP Jade Series I, which was held from October 7-10 at the Macau Billionaire Poker Room, had 5 side events and featured a Main Event with a buy-in of HK$12,000 and again a guaranteed prize pool of HK$1,000,000.  All the events in the MBP Jade Series I had a guaranteed prize pool, an offering hardly seen in poker tournaments nowadays.  A total field of 60 players attended the Main Event but this participation resulted in an overlay for the organizers.  Nonetheless, keeping to the integrity of the event, the organizers forked out the guarantee as promised.

Feng Zhao ended up being the last man standing in the Main Event, taking home Hk$371,000 for prize winnings.  This had surely been a juicy addition to his trophy-filled home and his current total live earnings of over US$300,000.  Feng Zhao, a renowned poker player in Asia, had been a consistent winner in past events of the Asian Pacific Poker Tour (APPT), Asian Poker Tour (APT), and other poker tournaments in the region.
