I have noticed the great presence of Chinese players in poker tournaments and there are some with great potential for the game, this is good for poker and for those who like to play with good players.

The question is too broad for people to bother to answer.

Do you mean Chinese citizens or Chinese diaspora? If so people count English Chinese or American Chinese as just that - English or American etc.

If talking of Chinese citizens, then the official position of the Chinese government was to ban online poker in 2018 I believe. Obviously there are ways for people to circumvent a governments official position and play, but most are not doing this registered as Chinese (the only ones I know were based in HK). So most here will have little to no idea if they are playing Chinese citizens or not.

GG poker boasts its initial growth came from Asia but trying to pin down where exactly this is from (in terms of countries) appears a little elusive.

Well, I hope that the Chinese government will change its stance towards Poker. It would be great to have Chinese players playing freely without having to hide their identities.

I do not care what nationality my opponents are. For me, the main thing is victory, so the nationality of opponents does not matter.

HMMM

At first glance this thread looked iffy. Personally i dont like to judge players based on their race. I believe it blinds you from the actual tells you could be getting. All i want to know is if the player is tigh(passive,aggresive), or Loose(passive, aggresive). Thats all you need to know and also every human plays poker different dont judge them on something as non-sequitur as race.

I did not notice anything like that. Maybe you just registered an account on a Chinese site?

When I played in CardsChat freerolls at 888 Poker there were Chinese players that would play in these tournaments very often.But,I haven't played at 888 Poker in a long time,so I wouldn't know if there are more or less Chinese players in tournaments now.
