Ye "yuan365" Yuan Looking For Another Big Summer of Online Fun

Ye Yuan
Ye Yuan

Ye "yuan365" Yuan, also known as Tony Yuan, has a tiny amount of cashes on his Hendon Mob profile, with just $6,774 in career tournament earnings outside of one particularly big outlier. Yuan, a Ph.D Candidate of Mathematics and Probability at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, overcame the odds and made the final table of the 2020 WSOP $10,000 Main Event, after pushing through a field of 705 entrants.

“I still can’t believe it." Yuan told PokerNews about his run to the final table. "I don’t know how I made it, but someone I did. I was quite lucky to have some big hands. I won a coinflip when short-stacked with pocket nines against my opponent’s ace-jack offsuit." Yuan also was confident in the transition to the live final table, as opposed to online, saying, "I’m a live guy. I think my live play is better than my online play. I can read people.”

Yuan finally succumbed in fifth-place, losing a flip with ace-ten to the pocket fours of Joseph Hebert, but the $286,963 payday certainly helped put a big dent in his college tuition. Now, with another summer of online events waiting, Yuan will be looking to make another deep today after notching two final tables already this series.

2021 WSOP Online

One of the marquee events of the 2021 Online World Series of Poker kicks off at 3 p.m. PDT today, as Event #24: $400 No-Limit Hold'em Monster Stack awaits players looking to start with heaps of chips.

Players will start with a whopping 40,000 in chips, and blinds will kick off at 25/50 and increase every 15 minutes.

Players who bust out can re-enter twice with each re-entry lasting only 30 seconds, so players will need to make sure they have enough funds in their WSOP.com account before the tournament starts if they plan on re-entering.

Late registration and the re-entry option will be open for the first 3 hours and 55 minutes of play. Tournament tickets are not usable for re-entry.

Last year's Event #10: $600 No-Limit Hold'em MonsterStack saw Ryan "Im.sorry" Torgerson navigate his way through a massive 2,074 field, earning his first WSOP gold bracelet along with $172,361. The final table included Nick "DuckFlush" Pupillo (6th - $18,367), Sam "texasmolly" Grizzle (3rd - $77,725), and runner-up Brandon "Omni27" Ienn (2nd - $106,508).

This is the 24th of 66 bracelet events being held on WSOP.com (33 events) and GG Poker (holding the remaining 33 events).

All events will begin at 3 p.m. PST. Satellites are running on-site for as little as $1.
