About Dong Kim

Dong Kim is an American-born Korean high stakes online poker pro, and is one of the best Heads-Up (HU) players around. In 2015, he won the SCOOP US$20,000 HU event, known to be one of the most difficult and competitive online tournaments. He also played a $15,000 hand HU challenge against fellow online poker pro Nick Frame (TCfromUB), successfully beating him for a hefty $103,992 along with the $15,000 side bet. His stellar performance in the challenge further solidified his position as a top pro in the online poker world. In 2015, Dong Kim along with Doug Polk, Bjorn Li and Jason Les - four of the top HU players in the world won a collective $732,713 worth of virtual money off Claudico, the Artificial Intelligence-infused poker bot created by Carnegie Mellon University.

Dong recently joined Natural8’s 'Team Hot' as one of their elite pros and is heavily optimistic on his views about the growth of the <a href="/poker/tournaments/asia-poker-league-online-series">Asian poker</a> scene. Dong will be making more appearances in the Asian live poker circuit, so keep an eye out for that Natural8 patch!
