A champion has been crowned in the largest World Poker Tour (WPT) Prime Main Event in history (aside from the WPT Prime Championship). Seonguk Huh, from Korea, took down the WPT Prime Taiwan. 

He toppled a field of 1,359 entries at the Asia Poker Arena on Monday, capturing the top prize of TWD 6,319,800 (USD $197,741), which includes a $10,400 seat in the 2023 WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas. 

 The second annual WPT Prime Taiwan, held in association with the Chinese Texas Hold’em Poker Club, set a Prime tour record for entries, at 1,359, surpassing the 1,224-mark set by WPT Prime Gold Coast earlier in the year.
