Getting to Know Anson Tsang - Hong Kong’s Two-Time WSOP Bracelet Winner
Anson Tsang, also known as Yan Shing Tsang or by his online moniker “[email protected]”, is a two-time WSOP bracelet winner. He won his first bracelet in the 2018 World Series of Poker Europe, taking home Event #7: €2,020 + 180 Pot Limit Omaha 8-Max.
His second bracelet came just two years later in the recently-concluded 2020 World Series of Poker Online on the GGPoker Network. Tsang took home Event #68: $500 Deepstack No Limit Hold'em [Asia] for $150,460, as well as a package for the World Series of Poker Europe and a $7,500 Natural8 sponsorship.
Anson has been playing poker for 12 years now, ever since he stumbled upon an ad for a free online poker game on Facebook. Since then he has amassed a total of $2,985,414 in live earnings, as per his Hendon Mob page.
“I like PLO and 2-7 Triple Draw. I definitely prefer to play tournaments and enjoy that excitement. They also offered 5 Card PLO live in Barcelona and I loved that very much. It was a fun game as you can hit a lot of boards hard with five cards in your hand!”
“After winning a PLO bracelet at the WSOPE and a Hold’em bracelet on Natural8, it would be great to win a mixed game bracelet in Vegas. I would also like to compete for the WSOP Player of the Year in the coming years.”
Sin City indeed has a special place in his heart; a place where he’s participated in high stakes mixed game tournaments since 2017 and clashed with some of the biggest names in the poker scene. 2019 in particular provided some bittersweet memories, as Tsang came close to winning his second bracelet twice.
