How much do you enjoy playing poker?
Jason Lo: I am living the dream! Loving every second of playing so it’s awesome.
What made you decide to play poker?
JL: Growing up I love mathematical games and puzzles. I really love two movies that are really popular among Chinese; they are ‘God of Gamblers’ and ‘Poker King’, and developed interest for the game of poker. Before I became a poker pro I was an advantage gambler, it was on one of my outings I came across a huge poker tournament. I took a shot and loved it since.
What is HKPPA? What does it do? How does it help poker players? How can someone become part of it?

What makes Jason Lo the next poker sensation in Asia?

Are you preparing for the WSOP?
JL: Yes! I am going to APPT Seoul, then straight to Vegas!
What preparations are you doing for this tournament?
JL: I am on my A-game right now, having won a title in each of the last three series I played in. My confidence is at all-time high, so I intend to follow my usual routine, get plenty of rest and go play!
If you can talk to 18 year old Jason Lo, what is your message to him?
