Singaporean Slays Red Dragon

Patrick Lee wins the Red Dragon main event at record breaking Macau Poker Cup

MACAU, CHINA, August 14, 2011 PokerStars Macau at Casino Grand Lisboa was once again the site of another record breaking Macau Poker Cup: Red Dragon which took place from August 6-14.

The 9-day poker celebration had a total of 1,652 players and awarded HKD $9,553,323 (USD $1,225,000) in prize money which are both records.

"It's an amazing way to finish the Macau Poker Cup: Red Dragon series in 2011." said Danny McDonagh, PokerStars Director of Live Operation for Asia-Pacific. "I'm really looking forward to October's MPC: Championship. Already having 4 record breaking events this year leaves me very optimistic about doing the same for the final two majors."

478 players from 39 different countries competed in the second biggest Red Dragon main event ever. The top 58 runners would win a piece of the guarantee-smashing HKD $4,780,000 (USD $612,800) prize pool.

PokerStars Macau Qualifier Patrick Lee became the first player from Singapore to win the legendary MPC main event. The 27-year old won the HKD $1,039,700 (USD $134,155) grand prize after 3 grueling days of play.

"It feels good." said the 27-year old aspiring poker pro. "I have played a few live events here at PokerStars Macau but this is my first final table. I haven't thought about the money. I'm just excited about the win and will be attending future events for sure!"

Asia's biggest poker room was packed with tournament finales as 3 side event titles were also decided on Sunday.

Hong Kong's Michael Yeh won Event 7: $6,000 NLH taking home the lion's share of the HKD $844,668 prize pool.

19 of the event-record 158 runners returned for Day 2 of Event 7 including Team PokerStars Pro Celina Lin. Cashing in her second numbered event of the week, the Shanghai-born Lin had a short day and lost a coin flip exiting in 16th place. Australian Bruce Nguyen made his third final table in 7 days but had to settle for the HKD $46,500 6th-place money. Eventually heads up play would become an all-Hong Kong dual between Yeh and Paul Cheng.

In the final hand, Yeh moved all-in with KJ and was called by Cheng's A9. The board flopped K-Q-8 to give the finance manager the top-pair lead and another Eight and King gave Yeh a full house for good measure. The 32-year old Yeh won HKD $160,000 for his first title in two final table appearances this year.

China Ready to Slay Red Dragon

Beijing's Xiaobo Zhou leads remaining 26-player field heading into Sunday final

MACAU, CHINA, August 13, 2011 – 26 men -- including 10 PokerStars players -- remain in the Macau Poker Cup: Red Dragon main event as we enter the Day 3 final on Sunday.

Leading the way is PokerStars Macau Qualifier Xiaobo Zhou from China who has 844,000 chips with fellow country-men Yang Zhang (605,000) and Chen Lu (520,000) rounding out the Big Three stacks.

China, Hong Kong and Chinese Taipei have been in a 3-way tie for most Red Dragon titles since March 2010 -- they have 3 each -- but that may very well change with 8 of the 13 biggest stacks coming from the Mainland.

The second biggest Red Dragon in history began last Thursday with 478 entries and the top 58 players will be in the money for their share of the guarantee-crushing HKD $4,780,000 prize pool with a grand prize of HKD $1,039,700.

When play resumes in PokerStars Macau at Casino Grand Lisboa, there will plenty of competitors looking to break the Chinese-dominated play thus far. That includes Hong Kong's David Man (406,000), Thailand's Daniel Tarnopol (381,000), Malaysian Jun Wah Yap (258,000), and Japan's Kishimoto Osamu (215,000)
