word type: sobriquet

  1. Nickname for poker personality Terrence Chan.

Arguably Cooler Than Johnny Chan

Terrence Chan is known for many things in the poker world: He maintains a blog in which he chronicles his travels around the world, his former occupation as one of the first employees of online poker site PokerStars, his fondness for martial arts, and his action in high stakes games of fixed limit hold 'em.

Assigned a Place in Poker History

During the inaugural SCOOP series of April, 2009, Terrence Chan made history in a grand moment of synchronicity by winning two limit hold 'em events simultaneously--both the $500 SCOOP-M and the $5,000 SCOOP-H--and achieving what is undoubtedly among the rarest feats possible in the realm of poker tournaments.
