When speaking about poker players, we can not but mention John “The Razor” Phan and Liz “The Pokerdiva” Lieu. What do they have in common? First, they both originate from Vietnam. Second, both of them have made their poker careers in America. Third, they are friends. More over, they are both engaged in charity work.
Participating in WPT and WSOP, John was very close from being called poker player of the year of 2005. His tournament winnings totaled practically $3 million. As for Liz, she is a frequent winner at high stakes cash table in Las Vegas. This year she has been taking part in WPT, European Poker Tour (EPT) and some other circuits around the world.
The Befair Asian Poker Tour is in fact the first major tour in Asia. And both Liz and John are going to take part in it. They both hope to win. And if either of them wins the tour, they’ll give 20% of their future winnings to charity. It might be as much as $100,000.
Liz and John comment: “We are both really looking forward to the Betfair Asian Poker Tour in Singapore to represent our team, Martinspoker.com. It will be really interesting to follow poker’s growing popularity in Asia from close range. Asians are always good with games and that is one of the reasons why so many players of Asian origin have been so successful in the world of poker, especially in America. We would also like to find new poker players that would like to become members of our team by showing their skills on our site or in live tournaments like the one in Singapore”.
