USOP Taiwan 2024 - Super High Roller - Ivan Lee

If you believe in miracles then you are not wasting your time. We know of a poker player who bounced back from having just a couple of big blinds to ultimately shipping a coveted title. Yes, we are talking about Ivan Hon Cheong Lee from Hong Kong.

This poker player was down to his last few big blinds and was playing very cautiously and won two all-ins back to back (one against Punnat Punsri with a better full house). He battled a tough field and locked a heads-up session with Thailand’s All Time Money List topper Punsri and went on to grab the prestigious Super High Roller title for a sum of TWD 3,125,200. Thai player finished runner-up for a payday of TWD 19,40,000.

He also took the runner-up spot at the High Roller Megastack event at USOP Taiwan 2024. Lee’s third cash turned out to be a title win for a sum of TWD 3,125,200 (~$100,300). This payout is the biggest payout given to a title winner in the event so far.

This event paid the top 16 places and the total entries recorded were 101. The final prize pool stood at TWD 10,776,700 (~$346,456).

Players were getting knocked out from the final table. The players who took the fifth spot was  Meng Ling Lin for a sum of TWD 538,800. When only five players were left in the game, Ivan Lee had around 9 big blinds. This player from Hong Kong wanted to chip up and get back his lost stack. God heard Lee and gave him Fishhooks to play with against Lin. From the small blind position Lin played with 10 2 .

Lin ran into Lee’s pocket Jacks and finished 5th place as the board did not favour him in any way. 4th place went to Matthew Belcher from United Kingdom. He was shown the door by Lee and Thailand’s Punsri wiped out Samuel Wilkinson from the SHR race in 3rd place.
