Randy Lew and Celina Lin Find Love at PokerStars

Randy Lew and Celina Lin Find Love at PokerStarsRandy Lew and Celina Lin have been members of PokerStars Team Online for several years now, with the two having first started dating in November 2016. Fast forward almost a year and a half, and the couple have now decided to tie the knot, with Randy Lew announcing the news via twitter on Tuesday. As the excited pro then wrote:
“I can’t believe I just luckboxed @CelinaLin the most wonderful girl in the world! Although I was worried when I made her dig up a box in the sand to find this world class handmade golden paper ring I made and the first words she said was “No way!” Scared me but she meant yes!”
According to Lin, the two first got together at the 2016 DreamHack eSports tournament held in Sweden, during which time it was announced that Lew had signed a sponsorship deal with Team Liquid to represent the organization at Hearthstone tournaments across the globe. Nevertheless, the duo had apparently know each other for some time before, with Lin having interviewed Lew on the sidelines of the APPT Macau back in 2010.
Papamoa Beach in New Zealand provided the setting of Lew’s recent proposal to Lin, with the couple apparently having had a “heated discussion” only the day before about not spending enough quality time together. The next day, Lin then followed a series of riddles left by Lew in a card which ultimately led her to a box in the sand containing a note that said; “Will you marry me?”
There was also a ring that Lew had crafted from a gold-colored piece of cellophane inside the box, which he made to act as a substitute ring until the two had a chance to go shopping for the real thing. As to where the wedding itself will eventually take place, Lin said:
“It’s probably going to be a destination wedding. I would say a beach wedding, somewhere along Great Ocean Road in Melbourne.”
Celina Lin is a Chinese poker pro with $938,167 in live earnings, and a further $218,526 won online, while Randy Lew has amassed $1,294,454 playing live tournaments, with his online earnings totaling $1,007,169. Lew is also noted for his multi-tabling skills, and in 2012 set a world record for the ‘Most hands of online poker played in 8 hours’ while still making a profit, after playing 14,548 hands and winning $20.72.
