High Stakes Poker High Stakes Texas Season 9 Chinese richest debut is not afraid to be on Phil ivey!

The ninth season of High Stakes Texas, on the evening of April 24, aired the tenth episode of the ninth season of “High Stakes ”. The guest lineup of this episode has undergone a little change compared to the previous episode, with Chinese entrepreneurs Stainley Tang and Phill ’s nemesis Eric Persson joining as newcomers.

DoorDash food delivery app co-founder Stanley Tang played High Stakes Poker for the first time that night. Tang, 29, is a tech entrepreneur from Hong Kong with a degree in computer science from Stanford University and is worth more than $2 billion.

He is also an avid Texas Hold’em player, often playing big-scale private regular games. Tang is not a professional poker player, but he does show some solid poker fundamentals in this episode.

Guests played $500/$1,000 No Limit Hold’em with over $2 million in chips on the table. The chip counts at the start of the show are as follows:

Here are some great tidbits from this episode of High Stakes Poker.

Tang’s debut

At the start of the show, Tang won a pot from poker superstar . Phil had J♦ 8♦ and the board was 10♦ A ♠ 5♣ 9♠ 10♠.

The pot has $45,000. Ivey wisely gave up on bluffing as Tang held 10♣ 7♣ (three sets of ten).

Later Persson tried to Tang, and this time he succeeded.

Adelstein raised to $3,000 from late position with 7♦ 7♣ and Tang called with Q♥ 10♥ on the button. Persson then raised to $12,000 from the big blind with 7♥ 2♠. Both Adelstein and Tang called.

The flop came Q♣ J♥ 8♦ and all three checked.

The turn is the 8♠. Persson made a bluff bet of $22,500. Adelstein folded and Tang called.

The river was J♣ and the board showed two pairs. Persson continued to pretend he had a good hand, leading by $63,000. After some consideration, Tange folded and Persson showed his bluff.

It didn’t take long for Kenney to raise to $3,000 from early position with J♠ 9♠. Tang unexpectedly called with A♣ K♥. Menon 3-bet to $13,000 on the button with 10♦ 10♣. Kenney called and Tange 4-bet to $50,000.

Menon, who played fiercely, moved all-in for $287,000. Kenney quickly folded and Tang ($241,000 in chips) called. The two agreed to deal twice for the $590,500 pot.

The first deal was 10♠ A♥ 5♥ K ♠ 3♥, which was bad for Tang as he not only lost half the pot, but also wasted two outs.

The second deal was J♣ 3♣ 2♥ 4♦ Q♠, and Menon narrowly took down a huge $590,000 pot.

 

Adelstein’s success

While Tang’s debut overall wasn’t great, he won a pot against poker legend Garrett Adelstein.

Adelstein raised to $3,000 from late position with K♥ 7♥. Tang reraised to $10,000 on the button with 10♠ 9♦.

The flop is 6♠ J♦ 6♣. Both missed the flop completely. Adelstein checks, Tang bets $6,000, Adelstein raises to $22,000, and Tange calls.

The turn is the Q♦. Adelstein bet $35,000 and Tange called with an two-end straight draw.

The river is 9♥. Both check.

 

Adelstein didn’t pull the trigger to fire a third shot, obviously annoyed that he didn’t even look at Tang’s hole cards.
