I am a Poker Player: Lessons from the Best Players in Asia

This event will be conducted in Cantonese.

One of the old cliches about poker is that it’s a hard way to make an easy living. In their book I am a Poker Player, Mr Chuchu and Derx Lai speak to some of the best poker players in Asia to find out why they choose this highly competitive line of work and how they stay ahead of the game. They are joined by Stephen Lai to examine the world of professional gambling and perseverance in an uncertain world. Stephen Lai is the Managing Director of the Hong Kong Poker Players Association.

Only those who perservere to the end will see a miracle. An educator to over 3000 students of over 10 years and the founder of Love Decode, Mr Chuchu is the author of two bestselling novels,《禁書》and《男人要的不是美女》and previously a columnist in 3 Magazine. More recently, he is honoured to be the author and project coordinator of《我是牌手-顛覆你對傳統賭博看法的第七十三行業》.

Life influences life. Derx first played Texas hold’ em while on a working holiday in Australia in 2015, and the card game of Poker subsequently acted as a main source of income in the later half of the year. After returning to Hong Kong, he secured a consecutive two-time Baby Dragon victory in 2016 and further developed his Texas hold’ em skills within the industry. In 2020, he co-founded the Internation Poker Academy with Mr ChuChu as a contribution to the industry.
