Chinese delight as IFP debuts in the east
China proved masters of Match Poker by taking the inaugural IFP Asian Nations Cup title in the resort city of Sanya, beating a specially formed China Poker Games team into second place and Singapore into third.
Held in the sumptuous surroundings of The Grand Fortune Bay Hotel, the Asian Nations Cup also featured teams from Australia, Mongolia, India, Israel and Japan, each looking to take the trophy and book a place in the World Final.
