Hui Chen Kuo, also known as “Kitty”, is a 26-year old professional poker player who hails from Taiwan. Kuo is the first woman to reach a European World Poker Tour final table since Cecilia Pesaglini finished second in the very event last year in Season X. Kuo has played poker for four years and has been a pro for two of those.
Kuo has not put a foot wrong in this tournament and is certainly on the six-handed final table on merit. Although she lists her favourite player as being Gus Hansen she does not play in a similar style but she has shown she is not afraid to mix it up and take on the men; she even took on Tony G in a verbal war (and came out on top) yesterday.
Kuo's largest cash tops the scales at HK$557,230 (US$71,899) which she was awarded for winning the 2009 PokerStars Macau Poker Cup.
