Known at the online tables as “trex313”, Hac Dang is the brother of Di Dang. The brothers have managed to amass substantial winnings competing in the highest stakes games over the last few years.
Hac began playing poker under his brother’s tutelage while they were attending the University of Virginia. Initially a recreational endeavor for the pair, they quickly realized that the opportunity to make a considerable income from online poker was a very real possibility and began learning everything they could about the game.
The ability to discuss the game and bounce ideas off of one another was a valuable tool that allowed the brothers to rapidly climb the stakes. Despite their early success, Hac and Di managed to graduate from the University of Virginia with degrees in mechanical engineering. It wasn’t long after graduation that Hac and Di became regular competitors at the $200/$400 and $500/$1,000 games on Full Tilt.
After Black Friday, Hac began spending time in Vancouver where he continues to play online. Hac has stated that he is not as good a player as most people believe and attributes his success to being a prudent bankroll manager.
In late 2012, Hac began making training videos for his friend and fellow poker player Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond’s training site RunItOnce.com. In addition to making videos, Hac answers questions and offers advice in the sites forums.
