[Taipei, 8th June 2023] – Just mere days after the announcement that “Kannapong Tent” has joined Natural8 as their newest brand ambassador, the Asia’s largest online poker room surprises everyone with the announcement that Eric Tsai, a highly accomplished professional poker player, will also be joining Team Hot.
Hailing from Taiwan, Tsai, who is also known as “Lil6” to the online poker community, brings a wealth of talent and experience to the team, further solidifying Natural8’s commitment to supporting top-tier poker players.
As a member of Team Hot, Tsai will join an elite group of ambassadors and professional poker players representing Natural8. The team’s mission is to promote the game of poker and showcase the platform’s commitment to excellence, innovation, and player empowerment. Eric Tsai’s addition to this illustrious lineup further reinforces Natural8’s dedication to supporting and empowering talented players from around the world.
“Eric Tsai’s impressive achievements and unwavering passion for poker make him an invaluable addition to our team. We are excited to have him on board and look forward to the great success we will achieve together,” said Natural8.
With a total of $1,047,944 in live earnings and an impressive best live cash of $250,410, Eric Tsai has established himself as a formidable force in the poker world.
He took the poker world by storm when he won first place for two consecutive years in the Asian Poker Tour (APT). In 2018, he won his first APT title at the KRW 2,000,000 + 150,000 No Limit Hold’em – High Roller (Event #7) APT Incheon. A few months later, Tsai bagged his second APT title in the NT$ 33,000 No Limit Hold’em – High Roller event at the 2019 APT Taipei.
In the same year, Tsai was pushed to the limelight when he ended up as the runner up in the KRW 2,250,000 + 250,000 No Limit Hold’em – Red Dragon Main Event (Pokerstars’ 2019 Jeju Red Dragon), where he won $250,410. Not long later, Tsai became the talk of the town again when he took first place in the NT$ 130,000 + 10,000 No Limit Hold’em – APPT Open Super High Roller (Asia Pacific Poker Tour Taipei 2020).
After the COVID restriction was lifted in 2021, Tsai returned to playing live tournaments. His biggest achievements in 2021 happened at the prestigious 52nd World Series of Poker (WSOP), where he won the fourth place in the $5,000 No Limit Hold’em – 6 Handed as well as cashing in in 10 WSOP events.
Eric’s meteoric rise as well as remarkable achievements have earned him the prestigious 8th spot on the Taiwan All Time Money List as well as 3rd on the Global Poker Index (Taiwan), highlighting his exceptional skill and consistent success in high-stakes tournaments.
Tsai’s achievements are not limited to just playing poker. He believes that he has a duty to educate others and often shares his knowledge with other players through his popular YouTube page, where he has amassed over 100,000 subscribers and 23,000,000 total views.
When asked about his partnership plan with Natural8, Tsai said, “I believe that with this partnership, we will be able to nurture more Taiwanese poker players and bring them to even greater heights.”
