Popularly known as “The Cat,” Chan is also bringing home an elegant Chrysler 300C. His win seals his name in the ever exciting world of Poker.

While struggling during the early part of the 8-day competition, Chan brought home the bacon after forming a stringer hand against 2012 Melbourne Poker Champion, Joe Cabret.
