Wei Huang

Recreational player Wei Huang is enjoying his first trip to Europe, and he's on his way to make the most out of it. The 34-year-old from Shanghai entered Day 4 of the Main Event last in chips with 30 players left, but he showed high resistance and even took over the pole position on the last three tables. A crucial hand that propelled Huang to a massive leap through the standings saw him cooler Melika Razavi in a flush-over-flush encounter.

Huang, who wears the gear of his favourite football team Shanghai Greenland, works in PepsiCo financial department back in China. He plays poker only occasionally, but now eyes to become the first Chinese champion of the flagship European tournament, not even a year since Haoxiang Wang's narrow miss at EPT Barcelona. Huang revealed that he looks up to Erik Seidel.
