Japanese poker player Kaiya Shono may be a rookie, but he’s making headlines. Shono stood out in APT Taipei’s Main Event, which promised the largest-ever guarantee in APT history, leading Flight C by bagging the biggest stack (218,900). Shono was up against 280 entrants and made his way into the top ten. 

His Main Event run earned him NTD 111,000 (USD 3,517), his best live cash to date, but where he truly shone was in the Hyper Turbo High Roller Events. 

Shono placed 4th and 5th in the Hyper Turbo High Roller Events #47 and #28. He bagged NTD 108,000 (USD 3,422) for the former and NTD 71,000 (USD 2,245) for the latter.

Currently, Shono has USD 9,184 in total live cash earnings.
