Police in Michigan found burnt remains of a body one week ago in a parking lot in White Lake Township. It took them some time to identify the body, which turned out to be Susie Zhao, an Asian American woman who lived in Waterford Township. The remains were discovered last Monday at a DNR parking area located on Maceday Road near Cross Road.
Anyone who had seen or had been in contact with Susie Zhao in the period between July 11 and 13 or has more information relevant for the investigation is asked to contact Detective Lt. Christopher Hild at 248-698-4404, ext. 2381.
What many did not know was that Susie Zhao was an avid poker player. In fact, she identified herself as a professional poker player, and she was pretty active on social media, too – especially Twitter.
Zhao as a Poker Player
According to her Hendon Mob page, she managed to earn a total of $224,671 in live tournament cashes. She liked to take part in the World Series of Poker.
In fact, Zhao took part in the WSOP Main Event several times and managed to make it to the money list three times — in 2012, 2015, and 2017. The deepest she went in a Main Event was back in 2012 when she managed to get to the 90th place, where she won $73,805.
In the 2015 WSOP Main Event, she ended up 172nd and won a total of $40,433. Moreover, her significant result was ending in the 15th place in 2009 $5,200 No-Limit Hold ’em Championship Event that was part of the World Series of Poker Circuit. WSOPC made a stop in Hammond. She won $19,851 for her effort.
Zhao also made it to the final table in WSOPC Hammond in a $2,125 No-Limit Hold ’em in 2009, when she hit the rail as the seventh-placed player and won a total of $8,018. This was her biggest success place-wise. The next one was in The 2013 Grand Poker Series in Las Vegas, when she ended up eight for $10,076 in the $1,080 Grand Finale Poker Shark Championship.
She also made it to the 15th place in 2012 WSOP Event #11: $1,5000 Pot Limit Omaha, where she won $11,995. Her run in the 2017 WSOP Main Event wasn’t as good as the previous two, as she ended up in the 697th place. Nevertheless, she still managed to win $18,693 for her effort.
Apart from taking part in WSOP events, Zhao also enjoyed playing cash games and was a regular in games that took part in her area. Moreover, she was also once at Live at the Bike.
Clayton Fletcher was sad about the passing of Zhao. The two of them met in 2015 in the WSOP Main Event, and Fletcher wrote that Susie had been “one of the bubblies and most vivacious opponents.” Moreover, he added that Zhao had been a “strong player,” but he also stated that she was always eager to have fun at the table.
