“Shenqiyulu” wins WPT Asia Online Main Event for $251K; final festival results

The globally renowned World Poker Tour wrapped up its second Asia Online series on the Poker King app, and as previous, it paid out hefty prizes to all the winners. The top attraction was the headliner Main Event where a whopping CN¥ 10,000,000 (~US$ 1,564,724) was promised. After seven starting flights, 3,078 entered, creating a sizable overlay. Emerging victorious was “Shenqiyulu”, who turned the lowly CN¥ 2,200 (~US$ 344) buy in into a massive CN¥ 1,605,750 (~US$ 251,350) payday.


Aside from the enormous pot, also adding value was the bounty reward placed on invited stars, Daniel Dvoress, Patrik Antonius, Lynn Gilmartin, DJ Steve Aoki, and Poker King Ambassador Phil Ivey. While each one advanced to Day 2, none of them reached the money round.

Recapping the action, 743 players advanced to Day 2 with payouts starting at 370th place. At the fall of “Hanalice” in 10th place, the final table was formed led by “winner4life”. Upon resuming, shortest stacked “leitingyulu” quickly busted in 9th place followed by “huaguduo” (8th) who fell to player “AAadminAA” with Jh9h full house over AsKs top two pair on a board 10h9cAh9sKd. Player “zhadan6” amassed a commanding lead after finishing off “winner4life” (7th) with Ace-Queen over King-Nine. From there, “zhadan6” held the advantage until the final three when “Shenqiyulu” AsJd eliminated “ikggkjjk” KcKh with a brutal straight over a set on a board 10hAdQc7hKs. Heads up lasted all of one hand with “zhadan6” shoving Kd2c and “Shenqiyulu” ahead throughout with Ah7d. In US dollars, the top two players earned noteworthy six figure payouts.
