Who is Johnson Juanda? Here we will explain in detail who and where Johnson Juanda comes from. Born on July 8 1971 in Medan, North Sumatra, this man named Johnson Juanda has become a respected figure and a topic of conversation in the world of international gambling.

It started in 1990 when John Juanda decided to leave Indonesia to continue his postgraduate studies at Oklahoma State University in America. John then continued his Master's studies and obtained an MBA from Seattle University, United States in 1996.

John, who has been familiar with the world of gambling since childhood because he grew up in a family that was often involved in it, feels familiar with gambling. John knew very well how his father often gambled and drank alcohol since he was little. This made him realize that his father lost at gambling because he drank too much alcohol.

This was the reason why John always refused to drink alcohol when gambling. However, every time John gambled, he always ordered alcoholic drinks and gave them to his co-stars.

When John was working on his Master's degree at Seattle University, he started his interest in the US gambling industry by playing poker at a nearby casino on campus.

Starting from that time, John began to explore the world of gambling in the United States and succeeded in winning several championships. In 1999, John took part in the World Series of Poker (WSOP) competition for the first time and placed ninth, taking home a prize of $15 thousand. Within four months in the same tournament, John managed to rank seventh and win USD$ 399,600.

In the period from 1999 to 2014, John managed to win five times at the World Series of Poker (WSOP). To be precise in 2002, 2003, 2008, 2011, and most recently 2014.

John managed to win a prize of USD$ 2,330,926 or the equivalent of IDR 28 billion thanks to his success in winning the WSOP title five times. In 2015, John was honored as an elected member of the Poker Hall of Fame and selected to represent the 50th group.

His work in various world poker tournaments has enabled John to collect more than USD$ 17 million or around IDR 240 billion. Starting from poker tournaments in America, England, Spain, to Australia. Wallowing in wealth, John prefers to live in Marina del Rey, southern California.

Reporting from pokernewsdaily, John is also known to often play poker with Hollywood celebrities in California. Among them, Ben Affleck, Tobey Maguire and the creator of the cartoon character The Simpsons, namely Sam Simon.

John admits that his success in various international poker competitions and the abundant wealth he has cannot be denied the help of God

Thus, John hopes that in his retirement, after leaving behind a life of gambling and playing poker, he wishes to provide free medical care and treatment services to people in need.
