High-Stakes Online Poker: Hac 'Trex313' Dang Up $1.7 Million So Far This Summer

According To HSDB, Dang Now Up $7,180,751 Lifetime On FTP


One of online poker’s most solid players is quietly having a huge summer.

Hac Dang, better known as “Trex313” in the world of high-stakes web cash games, was on a large downswing stretching from roughly March until May, before going on a massive heater that has not only gotten him out of a seven-figure hole but has left him as one of the biggest winners on the year. Unknown cottonseed1 leads the way with nearly $3.6 million in profits.

Dang was up nearly $5.6 million on Full Tilt before it shutdown in the summer of 2011. He is now up about $1.61 million since returning to the site. It relaunched in November 2012.

Since June 1, he is up $1.7 million, which is second best.

The University of Virginia graduate lives in Vancouver these days in order to play.

Trex313 is sixth on HighstakeDB’s list of biggest online winners. The data is based on 429,710 hands. His cash game profits amount to a whopping $7,180,751.

He trails only Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius, Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond, Dan “jungleman12” Cates and Di “Urindanger” Dang, who is Hac’s brother.

The largest hand Dang has played this year came back in March, when he won
$328,676 at $250-$500 pot-limit Omaha. The largest pot of his career came back in 2008 when he set-over-set Tom Dwan for more than $500,000 at $500-$1,000 no-limit hold’em.

Most of the latest action for Dang, as well as for some of his colleagues, has been thanks to unknown MalACEsia, who is considered a mark at $400-$800 no-limit hold’em and has dropped a massive $1.8 million over the past few months.

Isaac Haxton, who also has been making a lot of money from the aforementioned games, recently told Card Player about the situation with MalACEsia.
