Tuan Le (born February 15, 1978 in Paris, France) is an American professional poker player, known for his aggression and risk-taking.

Of Vietnamese ancestry, Le was raised in Kansas City, USA, but by middle school age he was living in Los Angeles, California where he attended John Burroughs Junior High School, on McCadden and 6th Street. He later attended Cal State-Northridge as a finance major.

He began playing in the $20/$40 limit hold'em games at the Hustler Casino in Los Angeles, where he currently resides.

In 2004, he won his first World Poker Tour (WPT) event, earning himself over $1,500,000. In 2005, he finished first at the World Poker Tour Season 3 Championship, winning just over $2,800,000. He also won the WPT Battle of Champions III event, defeating Eli Elezra in the final heads-up confrontation. With those wins, Tuan became the all time leading money winner on the World Poker Tour, although he has since been overtaken in this ranking by Daniel Negreanu.

He considers Barry Greenstein to be his mentor, based on his book "Ace on the River".

As of 2008, his total live tournament winnings exceed $4,600,000.

Outside of poker, Le is a recreational tennis and badminton player. He also enjoys listening to rap music.
