Introducing WinPokerCouple, the latest ambassador couple for Natural8. Weiwei and Nevan's journey in the world of poker is an inspiring tale of love and dedication. Their story began in 2005 when they met as teenagers and started dating at the age of 17. Nevan, already an accomplished gamer with the renowned CS esports team UMX, had represented Taiwan in tournaments worldwide.

In 2011, Weiwei and Nevan ventured into the e-commerce industry while pursuing their university education. Over the years, they gained valuable working experience together.

Nevan's fascination with poker sparked during a trip to Seoul in 2016, where he played Texas Hold'em and instantly fell in love with the game. He dedicated all his vacation days to participating in the prestigious Red Dragon tournament in Macau, spending countless hours studying and honing his skills. The couple's passion for Texas Hold'em led to their poker-themed wedding in 2018, after a decade-long romance.

As Nevan transitioned into a hybrid player focusing on online cash games and tournaments, the couple embarked on a journey to Las Vegas in 2018, attending cash game training workshops and learning from renowned experts.

In 2019, they established the WiN Poker Couple community, providing poker resources, interacting with fellow players, and sharing their journey from amateurs to professionals. They aimed to inspire others with their poker philosophies and strategies. Nevan's expertise also extended to commentating on the Azio TV program "I Am Poker King", while Weiwei showcased her skills by winning a single program tournament.

In 2021, the couple organised the first edition of the WiN Poker Couple two-person poker tournament in Taiwan, featuring notable players and influencers. They also gained recognition, finishing second in an online vote for Favorite Poker YouTubers at the 2021 GPI Asia Poker Festival. Their journey took a joyous turn in July 2021 with the arrival of their poker baby.

The year 2022 brought further success as Nevan secured first place in the NT$ 27,000 + 3,000 No Limit Hold'em - Championships CTP Championship Series tournament.

In 2023, they continued their pursuit of excellence, with Nevan recently clinching the top spot in the NT$ 63,000 + 7,000 No Limit Hold'em - Single Day High Roller 8 Max event at the Asian Poker Tour in Taipei City. Nevan ranks 14th in Hendon Mob’s Taiwan All-Time Money List, which adds up to the total live earnings of $1,082,077. The dynamic duo of WinPokerCouple exemplifies the spirit of dedication and love for the game, inspiring poker enthusiasts around the world.
