Juan de Jesus has been appointed tournament director by the WPT for the Korea tournaments. With more than twenty years of experience, he has managed tournaments at Foxwoods Resorts Casino and has collaborated with major poker tours such as the WPT, WSOPC, EPT, and PCA.

“The much-anticipated return of this thrilling event is set to electrify the atmosphere with excitement,” said Jenny Lim, Chief Operating Officer of Landing Entertainment Korea at Jeju Shinhwa World. “We invite poker players from around the world to return to Jeju Island, an amazing city!
