Hailing from Singapore, Bryan Huang is one of Asia’s rising poker talents. He took up the game while serving in the military, and his interest continued as he went on to study accountancy. While working towards his degree he began to take poker more seriously, by reading up on the game and trying to understand its complexities. That effort has paid off, and he’s now one of the toughest players on the circuit, and one of highest earning Singaporeans of all time.
Bryan has been playing the live circuit since 2006, and he’s never been afraid to jump on a plane in search of a big money tournament. Early in his career he made cashes in the Caribbean and Spain, as well as paying visits to Las Vegas. He bankrolled his trips by playing online, and his exposure to different kinds of poker around the world has paid dividends for his game. In recent years the live poker scene in Asia has gone from strength to strength, and Bryan has been able to take full advantage. He was voted ‘Rookie of the Year’ by Bluff Australasia magazine in 2008, ‘Asia Player of the Year’ in 2010, and is currently the highest-earning player from Singapore. He also has the distinction of cashing in three consecutive PokerStars Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) events - the opening three tournaments of Season 2 in Macau, Seoul and Auckland. The highlight of that run was his third place finish at APPT Macau, good for $153,841. He continues to cash at live events in Macau, and his online game is strong too, as he regularly goes deep in the $109 and $215 MTTs at PokerStars.
As you would expect from such a well-travelled poker player, Bryan likes to spend his time away from the tables soaking up the local atmosphere, and enjoying different cuisines. He also loves hanging out at the beach, as well as playing video games. Joining Team PokerStars Pro and turning professional means everything to him, and he’s enjoying being an ambassador for the game and promoting poker throughout Asia. Bryan Huang is a member of Team PokerStars Pro and you can find him at the tables under the Stars ID ‘BryanHuang’ on the PokerStars global site, and as ‘BryanHuangFR’ on the French license site.
