Biography

Kitty Kuo is a Taiwanese poker player, and is one of Asia's top female poker players. She has been a Natural8 Ambassador since 2016, and has amassed over $2.9 million in lifetime earnings.

Kuo was the Global Poker Index Asia Player of the Year in 2013, which was the same year she was the runner-up in the Women's Player of the Year category.

Kuo burst onto the live poker circuit with a victory in a HK$10,000 buy-in PokerStars Macau Poker Cup, which earned her HK$557,230 ($71,899). Since that outright win, Kuo has cashed in prestigious tournaments around the world, including on the European Poker Tour, World Poker Tour, and World Series of Poker.

In 2014, Kuo finished third in the $2,500 Hollywood Poker Open Main Event in Las Vegas for a then-career-best haul of $142,158. Only Michael Wang and Simon Deadman managed to outlast Kuo from a 692-player field.

The popular pro almost captured a WSOP bracelet in 2015, but ultimately had to make do with a fourth-place finish in a $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout event.

Kuo secured two six-figure scores in 2016, one for a sixth-place finish in the Aussie Millions Main Event worth A$270,000 ($189,018), and one at EPT Barcelona worth €101,500 ($114,071). Her best cash to date weighs in at $248,380, Kuo's reward for a runner-up finish in the 2018 $10,000 WPT Tournament of Champions, where she lost heads-up to Darren Elias.
