Dingxiang Ong announced his arrival with a first place win in just his second recorded tournament, winning the 2017 PokerStars LIVE Manila Megastack 7 No Limit Hold ‘Em Event. He played sporadically though but would register deep runs in 2019, at the Aussie Millions Poker Championship, Melbourne at the A$1,025 + 125 No Limit Hold’em Six Max Event and A$10,000 + 600 No Limit Hold’em Main Event with combined winnings of nearly $80,000. He would then score his career best cash in June 2019 finishing runner-up at the 50th World Series of Poker (WSOP) Las Vegas $1,500 No Limit Hold ‘Em 6-Handed Event bagging $251,937.

Dinxiang Ong barged into the win column a second time by snaring the China Poker Games Masters High roller Event cashing $88,639. His pre-pandemic tournament schedule would finish with a deep run again at the 2020 Aussie Millions Poker Championship, Melbourne. Ong would resume his live events briefly in 2022 with appearances at the 53rd WSOP Las Vegas and the Asian Poker Tour Manila before going into another hiatus from September 2022 to June 2023.

He returned big-time as he was crowned champion at the July 2023 Asian Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) Manila National Event after a four way ICM deal. Ong bagged not only the coveted APPT National Trophy but a lion’s share  of the prize pool at $40,049.

His latest achievement was placing 4th at the Asian Poker Tour (APT) Taipei Single Day High Roller Event, pocketing $23,529. This pushed his career cash winnings to 6th in the Singapore All Time Money List.
