One of the more out-of-nowhere stories at the WSOP final table was that of Ye Yuan, a student in Wisconsin originally hailing from China. The 25-year-old has a strong background in math considering he’s studying for his doctorate in probability.
Combine that with his love for the game stemming from his teenage years when he just played for fun, and he’s got the ability to perhaps follow in the footsteps of his poker hero, bracelet winner and high roller superstar Fedor Holz.
Ultimately Yuan exited in 5th place and shares with Sarah Herring about his contentment with his play.
