Kou Vang, a poker pro and family man from Maplewood, Minnesota, has just entered the field.
Vang has been playing poker full time for the better part of a decade, and in that time he’s developed a reputation as one of the Midwest’s most feared players. He even won an award for “Most Intimidating” at the Minnesota Poker Awards a few years back.
All told, Vang has $1,152,038 in live tournament earnings including first in the 2010 Fall Poker Classic $1,000 Championship Event for $78,421; a win in the 2008 World Series of Poker Circuit Council Bluffs $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em for $51,383; runner-up in the 2013 Running Aces Tournament of Champions $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em for $50,846; and first in the Midwest Poker Classic $2,500 High Roller for $32,500.
PokerNews previously did a feature interview with Vang, which you can read by clicking here.
