Poker Pack Member Steve Sung Continues Strong Run Heading to Asian Poker Tour Macau Event

Fellow Poker Pack Pros JC Tran, Quinn Do, and Nam Le Join In With Their Own Money Finishes

June 15, 2009 (Las Vegas, Nevada) -- Almost halfway through this year’s World Series of Poker®, Steve Sung, who will be heading to this year’s Asian Poker Tour event in Macau, is already running in high gear with a bracelet win and a final table showing.

The Poker Pack member kicked things off by winning Event #4 at the 40th World Series of Poker®. He outlasted a field of 6,102 and dominated the final table to win the $1,000 No Limit Hold ‘Em event, which was the biggest non-main-event tournament in history. With the win, he picked up his first-ever WSOP® bracelet in addition to $771,106 in prize money.

Just a little over a week later, Sung made his presence felt again by finishing third in Event #23, which was the $10,000 World Championship in No Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball. While he barely missed out on his second bracelet this year, the Korean poker pro did pick up $112,042 to bring his total winnings for this year’s WSOP® to almost $900,000.

The other members of The Poker Pack have been cashing in this year as well. Aside from Sung’s two big finishes, fellow members JC Tran and Quinn Do both have two cashes while Nam Le has one. All in all, the Pack has combined for seven cashes totalling $974,421.

The Poker Pack is a team of specially selected players of Asian origin who are ambassadors for the Asian Poker Tour. The group is composed of JC Tran, Nam Le, Quinn Do, David “Chino” Rheem, Steve Sung, and Kwang Soo Lee. Together, the six have approximately $23 million in live tournament winnings.

Asian Poker Tour Macau 2009 will be held at the Galaxy StarWorld Hotel and Casino in Macau from August 12 to 23, 2009. Buy-in is set at HK $32,000 + $2,400 (approximately US $4,300).
