Johnny Chan - The "Orient Express"

The fist in the air is so fitting for this poker icon. He is known as being a very aggressive poker player and is not to be undermined. Johnny Chan is famous for winning back to WSOP tournaments in 1987 and 1988. He is a ten-time winner of the World Series of Poker and was the first to accomplish this. He was born in Guangzhou, China, but grew up in Phoenix and Houston. After visiting Las Vegas, he dropped out of university to pursue a career in professional poker. With net worth of over $10 million we are sure he has no regrets about his career choice.
