Merely a young poker gun in 2016, Filipino player Kim Michael Enriquez has since made his way up the ranks locally and across Asia. Now boasting total live earnings of USD 241,364, the former karate instructor planted his poker roots online. 

His first significant win occurred in 2013 in his hometown of Cebu, where he placed first in the Heads-Up event at Asian Poker Tour Cebu, bagging PHP 142,600 (USD 3,500). Since then, he’s consistently cashed at live events  in the country and became a big gun in 2015 when he placed first in the Re-Buys and Add-On event at APT Manila (winning PHP 170,800 or USD 3,800) and at the No-Limit Hold’em event in the PokerStars LIVE Manila P1 Million Guaranteed tournament.
