– Florencio Compomanes’ Career –
The first tournament results that were tracked on HendonMob appeared in 2011. Since then Florencio showed regular final table appearances at Asian poker events.
The WSOP does not interest him as it sounds too much like a grind. He prefers shorter festivals like the European Poker Tour.
In 2019 he had called himself semi-retired, but then showed up with amazing results. He had taken down the 2019 APPT Manila Main Event, came second in the 2020 Red Dragon Manila Super High Roller and then won the inaugural PokerStars Red Dragon Manila Main Event for ₱13,815,070 ($270,183).
In addition to this he also proved to be a “lucky boy” and won the first Platinum Pass in 2020 in a lucky draw. This prolonged his poker career a little further.
