Hon Le

Nicknamed "The Kamikaze Kid" because of his aggressive style, Hon Le is a Vietnamese professional poker player from California.

Born in Vietnam, Hon Le moved to the U.S. in 1982 and found a job doing construction. Le started playing poker in1989. Years later, he heard about Men "the Master" Nguyen and Le sought him out and asked if he could be his poker student. After Men agreed, Le has become a successful tournament player. His first tournament win came at the L.A. Poker Classic in 2000 where he won the Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo event, earning more than $20,000. A year later, he won a Hold'em/Omaha event at the California State Championship.

He is best known for his 2nd place finish in the Legends of Poker event during Season 1 of the WPT (at a final table that included Mark Seif and Kathy Liebert) where he earned $122,550. Although he has had many cashes at minor tournaments, he hasn't been able to leverage his wins into anything substantial.

How did this loser get with the lovely Jen Harman? He is just a fat aggressive asian punk who thinks he can play poker but is really a pathetic joke.

Hon Le 2 on June 24, 2005

Are u kidding, this guy only does well when luck is on his side. He is an absolute joke.

To Sushi-X on June 14, 2005

Yeah right, any poker player with an ounce of skill will just wait and slowplay the nuts on this clown. Bust his sorry ass.

Karagulleyen is actually pretty good, but i agree that Hon Le is a hack. He probably never made it to another final table ever.

Observer on June 2, 2005

The funniest i ever saw from Hon is when he was heads up against Chris Karagulleyen in a WPT final table and he went in with 6-8 off suite and made a miracle straight on the turn. Nevertheless, he checked despite holding the nuts it was just so funny. Then on the river he was like "ten thousand!" and chris immediately folds. So he couldnt milk anything out of it since chris was so tight, it was just funny seeing him go "check" when he has it made lol and chris checking right behind him.

Ten Thoooouuusand!!..........fifteen Thoooooouuusand!........i Fold

Fear the kamikaze kid!

Jose on June 26, 2004

Chris Karagulleyen schooled Hon Le. Made him look like a total fool as Chris blew through his monster stack. Hon Le is his own worst enemy.

Hon is second in greatness only to Stuey. He's a great tipper, and a hell-of-a-lotta-fun at the local titty bars!! A true pussy hunter.

Sammy the Cabbie on June 8, 2004

Hon Le would eat Mark Seif for breakfast! He's the best hold em' player around, just chooses to lay low and bag the babes.

Raiden_Fox on June 3, 2004

This guy plays with his heart. Very fun to watch! Too aggressive at times!

Jesse T./ "AKA" MENG THE MASTER on June 3, 2004

Hon...I luv u! You are such an inspiration to me! Please know I will always be a fan...XOXO!

Shelly Ralston on June 1, 2004

I would take Mark Seif over this guy ANYTIME and lay 3-1. He will never win in the long run by getting all his chips in as an 80% dog!
