Several weeks ago, the local news daily MyPaper ran a feature on some of Singapore’s most prominent poker personalities. Enclosed was a picture of Joshua Ang, the runner-up in what was then known as the Betfair Asian Poker Tour; Ivan Tan, runner-up in the inaugural APPT in 2007; Bryan Huang, champion of the Ladbrokes Caribbean adventure, and Nathaniel Seet, arguably Singapore’s most successful cash game player. Sadly, another enormously successful cash game player – widely known by his online nickname PokerArt - was absent from the feature. Collectively, they represent a growing breed of young, intelligent, and educated Singaporeans who have chosen to treat the game as more than a pastime, and who have become immensely successful at it.
