Short Deck No Limit Hold'em (Event #47)
World Series of Poker, Online
Sam Nee is a Malaysian poker pro who joined Poker King Club’s (PKC) team of pros at the end of 2015. He has been playing live tournaments across Asia since early 2011, and he specializes in mid-stakes Holdem tournaments online, particularly at Pokerstars under the name “neesam.”
In terms of live cashes, Sam Nee’s earliest result came in February 2011, when he took down The Leisure World Poker Series VI High Roller Event for USD$5,882 held on a Singaporean cruise. This was followed by a 5th place finish at the Asian Poker Tour (APT) High Roller Event in Manila 7 months after. He won USD$10,230 for his efforts. In November of 2012, he placed 4th at the Asia Championship of Poker (ACOP) which netted him a further USD$10,361.
After numerous smaller scores, Nee received a larger return of USD$12,900 when he placed 4th at a Macau Poker Cup (MPC) Turbo Holdem Event. On October of the same year, he finished runner up of the World Series of Poker Asia Pacific (WSOP-APAC) Holdem Event, taking home USD$58,111, his biggest cash to date.
After consistent performances in events with small cashes, Nee made 2 significant final tables at the MPC Macau in March 2015. He proved victorious in the HK$ 4,000 No Limit Hold’em – 6-Max and made 7th place for the HK$ 20,000 No Limit Hold’em Event which gave him total earnings of more than USD$35,000. Ending the year 2015, Nee finished 11th place in the Australia New Zealand Poker Tour (ANZPT) Melbourne Main Event, adding a further USD$8,589 to his list of cashes.
Nee was hardly seen on 2016 but on July 2017, Nee once again manifested his skills at the game of poker by winning the APT Southeast Asia Main Event for USD$ 14,790.
Sam Nee has had a successful career so far, moving between online and live events with apparent ease. He hasn’t yet added a major title, or six figure score to his list of achievements yet, but the fact that he has been sponsored by PKC, suggests that big things are expected from him in the future.
