A Chinese property development executive, known as the "Red King of Gambling" owes $160 million in gambling debts to casinos in Macau.
Noted for "making multi-million dollar bets with abandon," Shao Dongming is being investigated for corruption by the Chinese government.

There's also little tolerance for his pride. A report from China's NDTV noted that Shao bragged that "anyone creating trouble for him would end up in jail." He has close ties to the mayor of Shanghai, and he has held high-level positions within the Communist Party.
