CPPT Event 2: 1st Place - Ching Poon

Ching Poon - Card Player Poker Tour Event 2 Champion 
While the $100,000 GTD Event 1 was getting down to it's final two players, the Event 2 field decided on a result of their own, as the Final Table decided on a ten way chop, with the 1st place Card Player Poker Tour trophy and a little extra going to Ching Poon (Staten Island, NY).

Poon was one of the shorter stacks in the field when Event 2 was down to it's final two tables and then rivered a full house against a big stacked player to stay alive.

In the very next hand, Poon would get dealt [Kh][Kd] and get a full double through that same player, going from the bottom of the leaderboard to the top in on of the bigger "swings" you'll ever see in tournament poker.

Poon would take that swing and only keep climbing, bossing the final portion of play to enter the Final Table as the massive chip leader, hence why he's walking away with the trophy.

While we weren't able to see much of the Event 2 action, Poon will certainly be on our radar heading into the bigger events coming up this week, as he'll look to build off his first major tournament victory and perhaps even make another deep run in the CPPT.

  1. Ching Poon - $2,696
