Biao Ding is a Chinese poker player who resides in Hong Kong. He is one of the fastest rising players in the scene. In just a short six years, he has built up a portfolio that puts him 6th in China’s All-Time Money List with total live earnings of $3,281,281. 

2017 – 2020

Ding made his live tournament debut at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) in China in December 2017, where he participated and finished 43rd, earning a small prize of $484. It wasn’t until 2020 did he pull in substantial payouts after he finished 5th at the TJPT China Poker Series Championship Tianjin for $33,678, and $15,233 for 9th place at the CPG Sanya Championship. 

2023 Triton success

Ding’s journey continued into 2021 with a few more five-figure payouts then finished first at the Tiger Poker Cup 2021 Season 2 to bank his first six figure payout of $120,625. The deep runs piled up into 2022 boosting his confidence enough to test his skills at the premier Triton Poker Super High Roller Series on the following year. Held in Hoi An, Vietnam, the challenge was fruitful. Ding placed 2nd at the $50K NLH 8-Handed for a jaw-dropping payout of $1,135,000. 

Two months later in Cyprus, he secured that coveted first Triton title at the $30,000 NLH Mystery Bounty Six-Max event to land another healthy payout of $540,500. Along the way, Ding faced many formidable opponents, including Jose ‘Nacho’ Barbero, who was leading the 2023 Card Player Player of the Year race in terms of points. Ding eventually defeated Barbero in a heads-up match to win his first significant live tournament.

WSOP achievements

In the summer of 2023, Ding spent two months in Las Vegas for the annual WSOP celebration. Like many, he hoped to clasp a gold bracelet. He cashed out in seven events with his deepest run and only final table finish at the $100K NLH High Roller 8-Handed. He placed 6th for a remarkable award of $469,919.
