Poker Achievements

Tang spent much of his early career playing in England, including a 2nd place finish in the $1,100 partypoker WPT National Main Event for $130,263 in 2016. Later that year, he would cash at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) for the very first time.

The following year, Tang cashed on numerous occasions in Macau before securing a breakout win at the PokerStars Championship Prague, winning €381,000 in the €10,300 High Roller.

Tang returned to Las Vegas in 2018, and produced a deep run in the WSOP Main Event finishing 31st for $230,475. He followed that up with another deep run in the EPT Barcelona Main Event, finishing 13th for $102,782. Later that year, he finished fourth in the EPT Prague High Roller for €197,720.

Having proved his abilities in High Rollers, Tang continued to excel in 2019. He finished runner-up in the Triton Montenegro Main Event for $1,796,498. Another seven-figure cash would soon follow at the WSOP, winning his first bracelet in Event #90: $50,000 High Roller for $1,608,406.

"It means absolutely everything," Tang told PokerNews. "Being one of the ambassadors for Hong Kong and Asia, and to just win the first bracelet in Las Vegas in a No-Limit Hold'em event. It's just unreal. Words can't describe it,"

This result meant he was the second WSOP bracelet winner from Hong Kong, and the first among Natural8's Team Hot.
