WPT has crowned another champion! After three days’ play, Charlie (@ryuta_charlie) from Japan took home the WPT Japan trophy, the title, and WPT Passport worth $13,000.

A journey to champion, however, was not a smooth one for Charlie. He played Day1A at Hotel Gajoen and advanced to Day 2 with 26,000 chips when the average stack was 87,000. Despite the rough start, Charlie ran his stack up and became the first player who eclipsed the 1 million chips stack mark on Day 2.

Nearing bubble on Day 3, Charlie’s AJo lost to 99 and became short stack. However, Charlie managed to come into the final table of nine with 2,570,000 chips which was a little above average. Charlie became the chip leader after knocking out KM (4th place), and Hi-Sama (3rd place) and sailed in heads-up with 16 million in chips and Hayatok who had 6.3 million.

In the last hand, short stack Hayatok went all-in after flopping with KK, Charlie pushed as well after short thinking with J9o and hit a gutshot straight draw with 8 on the turn. Congratulations to Charlie!
