This year Pan has already amassed a prize of $272,000, smashing everyone in his way. One by one players started being eliminated, commencing with Bin Wen Ren who was betting on an ace which flopped. Huafeng Gu was next to be eliminated when Long Wen Zhu called him out with pocket eights.
Pan eliminated Xong Xin Liu which ended up in seventh place. Long Wen Zhu went out in 5th place and Tsai in 3rd. Pan’s second tournament ever provided an amazing prize with 1st place and a HK$2,108,000 sum to take home.
