Longsheng Tan Wins $1,500 NLHE Event

by Gutshot Posted on 09 Jul, 2018

The excitement is increasing each day as the massive field of nearly 8,000 entries at the 2018 WSOP Main Event is getting smaller each day, with Day 4 coming to an end at the moment. However, there are other events also taking place at the World Series, like Event #66: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em.

This tournament saw a total of 1,351 entries and a prize pool of over $1.8 million was generated. After 4 days of grinding, a winner was finally decided in USA’s Longsheng Tan, who outlasted the final 6 players on the final day. He took advantage of his chip lead and converted it into his first WSOP bracelet win.

Tan is a real estate agent from China but he has made Vegas his home since a while now. He shipped this event for a career best score of $323,472 and even though he has live poker winnings of nearly $800k, he calls himself a recreational poker player. “When I have time, I sell a house. When I don’t, I play poker,” he said about himself.

He has earned over $500k in 2018 itself, including 4 WSOP 2018 cashes, so it looks like he could now make poker a full-time profession. “As long as I played my best, I’ll take whatever result. I had to stay calm. At one point, my chips went down to where almost everyone had almost the same stacks. I told myself to calm down, play my hands, and play my best. I was a little bit tilted but still I calmed down and got it in the end. I feel good right now,” he said after beating USA’s Lanny Levine in heads-up.

Final table results:

  1. Longsheng Tan – $323,472
  2. Lanny Levine – $199,862
  3. Jayaram Kovoorchathoth – $142,785
  4. Trey Brabham – $103,212
  5. Adam Laskey – $75,497
  6. Stephen Bierman – $55,892
  7. John Pannucci – $41,884
  8. Georgiios Tavoularis – $31,775
  9. Jason Paradis – $24,409
