Profile

Kazuki Ikeuchi is a poker player from Japan with over one million in live earnings. At the 50th annual World Series of Poker, Ikeuchi nearly brought home a coveted gold bracelet for his country after finishing 2nd out of 8,809 entries at the US$ 1500 Millionaire Maker event. He did however ship the largest payout of his career of US$ 830,783. This was the second time in his career that he missed the strap by one spot. Prior to this achievement, Ikeuchi was already decorated with a long list of deep runs and victories throughout Asia and the USA.

Ikeuchi’s earliest marks date back to 2007 cashing for the first time at the WSOP for US$ 20,761. He added another three WSOP deep runs in 2008 earning US$ 23,162 at the US$ 10,000 World Championship Pot Limit Hold’em event. 2009 onwards saw him cash minimally in Asia though none as big as his five-digit scores at the WSOP.

In 2017, Ikeuchi began to peek out of obscurity reaching the final table in all six of his cashes. He triumphed at three events: WPT Legends of Poker in Los Angeles at the US$ 240 No Limit Hold’em, WPT Korea Jeju KRW 400K Head Hunter 1 and the KRW 400K No Limit Hold’em Shot Clock.

While the Asia events had small fields, the LA event had 778 entries. Ikeuchi pocketed US$35,856 for his victory.

2018 saw another five-figure payout of $19,469 at the WSOP for 15th place out of 1,663 entries at the No Limit Hold’em 6-Handed event. His largest that year was a near win at the WSOP US$ 1,000 Tag Team event. He teamed up with Sho Mori and Hiroki Iwata. They each earned US$ 36,202 for runner-up.

The last quarter of 2018 to May 2019, Ikeuchi racked up numerous cashes in Korea and Taiwan. One of his largest was at the WPT Korea Incheon KRW 4,000,000 buy-in High Roller (~US$ 3,400) finishing 5th for KRW 22,239,000 (US$ 19,969).

Just before arriving at the WSOP, he won the Japan Highroller Festival 7 KRW 10,000,000 No Limit Hold’em Special High Roller Charity event in Busan for KRW 32,076,000 (US$ 27,051).

To date, Ikeuchi has 15 WSOP career cashes and is ranked 21st in THM’s All Time Money List for Japan.
