PokerStars Team Asia Pro-files: Tae Joon 'skat tilt' Noh

Tae Joon Noh
The only Korean national on PokerStars Team Asia Pro is 25-year-old Tae Joon 'skat tilt' Noh. Born in Seoul, Korea, Noh migrated into the world of professional poker from the competitive gaming scene. A former Warcraft 3 specialist, Noh recognized that the future looked grim for competitive Warcraft players and so he decided to take up poker.

Having met several friends in the gaming world who'd made the same career move, Noh turned to them for poker lessons and in no time, found himself multitabling on PokerStars. Since then, Noh has advanced to Supernova Elite status on PokerStars and can often be found online playing as many as 24 tables at a time.

Noh's live game has taken great strides over the past year as well. At last year's APPT Manila Main Event, Noh took part in an epic heads-up battle against Australia's Van Marcus that lasted over six hours. Noh ultimately finished runner-up in that event, but earned a very respectable USD $103,760 payday for his efforts -- his largest score to date.
