The First Japan Winner At World Series Of Poker is Kihara

23.06.2012 | Antoan Tok

On Wednesday night, Naoya Kihara really signed his name in the 43-year history of the World Series of Poker, becoming the first gold bracelet winner from Japan.

The event was held at the Rio-All-Suite Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas and he won the title of $5,000 Six-Handed Pot-Limit Omaha. He collected the prize money of $512,029 and also the gold bracelet of the event, overcoming 419 players, who came from more than 25 different countries. But the most important thing seemed to be that he had done something that no other Japanese had done before - and this is to win a title at the WSOP.

Kihara shared that pot-limit Omaha is actually not his best game, and that is why he is so happy that he got lucky. Now he hopes to get a sponsorship deal with one of the major poker online sites, as well as to become a poker ambassador in his home country and throughout Asia.
