Seat 4: Yunye Lu, 41, Shanghai, China, resides in Hong Kong - 4,500,000

Yunye Lu

Yunye Lu lived in Shanghai for 30 years, but now he resides in Hong Kong. The 41-year-old claimed to have played professionally for several years, but he’s treated the game as a sidekick since 2016. Lu works as an investment analyst.

He picked up poker ten years ago in the United States where he studied at UCLA. Lu revealed that he had previously made some trips to Europe for cash game action, but this is his first tournament experience on European soil. Lu’s racked up $440,000 in reported live cashes, half of that coming from his second-place finish in the PokerStars-sponsored 2015 APPT Red Dragon.

The EPT Main Event is yet to crown a Chinese champion, and Lu is the third player in the last 12 months who has a decent shot at changing that. Last year saw Haoxiang Wang finish second here in Barcelona, and Wei Huang repeated Wang’s feat three months ago in Monaco.

While poker is his primary hobby, Lu also enjoys many sports activities, including snowboarding, skiing, and playing tennis.
