We’ve never been shy of celebrating our own here at WGM, so having been invited to cover a special IDN Play Charity Poker Tournament at the Venetian’s Poker King Club during G2E Asia this week we were ecstatic to see WGM’s Operations and Digital Marketing Manager Jadeson Ho storm to a memorable victory!

Jadeson outlasted a field of 144 players to take out the top prize of a gold Rolex watch – his win coming just a few weeks after taking out the Pot Limit Omaha event during the ACOP Platinum Series. Not a bad run at all!

The Charity event attracted 144 of IDN Play’s affiliates and business partners – which include WGM and sister publication Inside Asian Gaming (IAG) – and was free to enter but with unlimited HK$500 rebuys for the first hour, with all proceeds going to local charity Lar Nossa Senhora de Penha. Prizes also included a Tag Heuer watch for second and an iPhone 6 for third.
