Zhenru Xie emerged victorious in the Red Dragon Main Event - Macau Poker Cup

Macau Poker Cup 21 concluded Wednesday with China’s Zhenru Xie winning the Red Dragon Main Event. The Chinese poker player topped a 808-player field to claim the title. Those 808 players generated a huge prize pool of HK $ 7,837,000, a sum which was shared out by the 108 "In The Money" survivors. After a few days of competition in the poker room of “City of Dreams” in Macau, the field was reduced to 9 players: Hu Liu, Pete Chen, Takuya Yamashita, Enming Zhang, Wai Leong Chan, Mathew Ryan, Chen Wang, John Hoang and Zhenru Xie. The first elimination occurred at the fifth minute of play when the Malaysian “online pot-limit Omaha” player Wai Leong Chan fell in the 9th place for HK $ 135,600. China’s Enming Zhang and John Hoang of Vietnam followed him afterwards. Both men earned respectively HK $ 175,000 (eighth place) and HK $ 232,000 (seventh place).

“2014 APPT Macau High Roller” third-placed Wang Chen was kicked out of the table for HK $ 290,000 for his sixth place. China's Hu Liu led the chip count at the start of the final table with an impressive stack of 3,155,000 chips, more than the double of the stack his nearest competitor had; unfortunately his run was stopped at 5th place for $ 350,000. Pete Chen joined him shortly for HK $ 491,000 (fourth). Japan’s Takuya Yamashita was eliminated in the third place for HK $ 658,000, paving the way for Zhenru Xie and Mathew Ryan to meet in the Heads-up clash of this poker event. Australian Mathew Ryan cashed HK $ 1.1 million as a runner-up while Zhenru Xie hit the top prize of HK $ 1,667,000 ($ 215,073), along with a Red Dragon trophy and a Slyde Titanium design watch.
