High-Stakes Regular Jorn Walthaus Opens Up About Cash Games and Poker in Macau

  • Donnie PetersDonnie Peters

Jorn Walthaus is a Dutch professional poker player, and someone who is regarded as one of the best high-stakes players from Europe. In 2013, Walthaus earned his most accomplished live tournament score after finishing 26th in the World Series of Poker Main Event for $285,408, but he's a player who has cut his teeth in some of the largest cash games in the world — specifically Macau.

Walthaus lived in Macau for approximately one year, participating daily in some of the region's biggest cash games during that time.

While in Macau for this year's PokerStars.net APPT Asia Championship of Poker, Remko Rinkema sat down with Walthaus to discuss the high-stakes action in Macau, the health of poker in the region, and what the future holds for the game in Asia's gambling capital. Walthaus also dives into what he knows about the large underground games that run China.
