Up-and-coming English poker player Craig Cooper has surpassed the USD 70,000 mark in total live earnings early on in his career. However, what is most impressive about the pseudo-rookie is that out of his 30 live tournament earnings, 27 were final table finishes.

Cooper’s best win was during the Mini Main Event at APT Incheon in 2023, where he clinched KRS 44,784,700 (USD 33,996). The win marked his second series title, as he beat out 54 players from an original pool of 377. 

Previously, Cooper had participated in APT Ho Chi Minh and APT Summer Series Da Nang, where he surpassed the top ten in each event he played. Following his biggest win, Cooper went on to play APT Hanoi Billions for the first time and placed first in the 7 Max event, winning VND 70,700,000 (USD 2,910). 

Cooper made his first appearance in Taipei at 2024 APT Taipei, where he placed first in the NT$ 7,200 + 800 Limit Triple Draw Mix and NT$ 7,040 + 960 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo events. At the 2024 USOP Danang, Cooper he won the 6-Card PLO.
