Post-win, Lin expressed that her victory had her “surprised” as she “did not expect it at all.”

With only one year of poker experience in her back pocket, Lin has proven herself a force to be reckoned with, participating also in CTP Hscinchu Weekly Tournaments. In the Super Weekend Deep Stack Tournament, LK Rookie Monster Stack, and Daily Deep Stack Event, Lin placed 4th, 4th, and 5th, respectively. 

Chien’s most recent poker ventures include APT Taipei, which commenced in early March 2024.
