WPT Korea allowed several poker players to enter and win big. As reported earlier, various side events kicked-in and the tournament concluded with immense success with the presence of participants like Danny Tang, KRW 5 million Single Day High Roller winner, regarded among the popular Asian stars.
The greatest festival of the Eastern zone saw Japan’s Tadashi Takei emerging victorious in the 2019 WPT Korea Main Event, earning KRW 108,170,000, the trophy, and 100 points in the WPT Asia Wing. After witnessing an intense pressure upon the top remaining players, the event wrapped up in style.
WPT Korea KRW 1,650,000 ME attracted a field of 350 entries to enter the tournament with a buy-in of KRW 1.6 million. Gradually as the competition progressed, a new prize pool was drawn of KRW 509,250,000 to be shared among the top 44 players.
Day 1A of the Main Event finished with Huidong Gu topping a field of 116. Eventually, a small bunch of 27 players advanced to Day 2 after surviving 13 levels. Day 1B of the event saw another 234 entries and across two starting flights, only 89 participants returned to action on Sunday, 22nd September. The day was favorable to Xu Jieming who was the chip leader.
From Day 2, only 9 players headed to the showdown. Gu eventually found himself resting in 9th position on Day 3 while Takei held his seat tightly at the 2nd position. After knocking out the remaining 7 players, Takei against Xin Liu in heads-up battle in level #32, the blinds increased to 75,000-1,50,000.
In the final hand, the turn opened 6h 4d 3h 5s, Takei moved all-in and Liu folded. Besides the trophy and prize money, the winner was also awarded POY points in the WPT Asia Pacific Players of the year race, identifying the Japanese player to be one of the top contenders.
