“Hi all, I am 阿軒, I’m from Hong Kong.
My friends told me about the Poker King Cup Taiwan, they asked me to come with. I think going on tournaments with friends is more fun coz when you win you can still share it with them. And we can encourage each other.
I’ve been playing poker for more than a year now, since university time. Some of my classmates taught me about it. This is my second time join a big tournament like this. I just want to see how my actual strength is, just want to try it out.
This Formosa Cup is my first ever champion. A lot of people think poker is just a game of luck and I’m not saying that it is not, but the main part of it is that you still need technique. If you blame on your luck when you lose then I guess you don’t really understand poker. Basically, I play poker everyday, whenever I have time, online or offline.
There won’t be much time for you to think when you’re playing poker online, that’s how you train your range. On the other hand, when you’re playing with your friends, you can discuss on how to act.
I feel very good about the Formosa Cup. It was a great chance to meet many professional poker players. I’m not saying that I’m playing very good, I think that I still have space to progress.”
Congratulations to 馮皓軒 again!
