Junichi Nakagari wins the WPT National Jeju

The WPT National Jeju Challenge has to go down as a reasonable success, although a brave guarantee figure ultimately led to a small overlay when they came up 11 players short of meeting the guarantee. The final number was 189 entries spread across 3 starting days, with a heavy contingent of Chinese players involved.  Of the 189 entries, 68 survived to day 2 (32 Chinese players, 14 Japanese players) with 16 making it to day 3. With a USD$200,000 guarantee, 24th place was paid $1,862 with 15th being assured of at least $2,813. By the time the final table was set, players were competing for prizes ranging from USD$9,390 for 6th place to USD$46,855 for 1st.

The Final Table line up was as follows:
Seat 1 – Daniel H Lee (S.Korea)
Seat 2 – Huang Shan (China)
Seat 3 – Chan Tsun Ming (Hong Kong)
Seat 4 –  Miyamoto  (Japan)
Seat 5 – Junichi Nakagiri (Japan)
Seat 6 – Kai Liu (China)

Junichi Nakagari crowned Champion

Junichi Nakagiri is a fellow Japanese national and has had an impressive set of results, mostly on the APT. He ranks 99th on Japan's all time money list before today. As the most decorated player in terms of previous cashes, it is no surprise that he went on to win this final table, taking home USD$46,855. He moves up to 55th on Japan's all time money list in the process, as he picks up his biggest ever live cash.
