Find Out Who Took Down the WPT Global $1 for $1 Million!

WPT Global $1 for $1 Million

The inaugural WPT Global $1 for $1 Million has crowned its winner with start-of-day chip leader "嗅也也" walking away with $100,000 and the title.

It was a rapid-fire final day that took less than twenty minutes to find a winner, but "嗅也也" held their nerve to secure victory, winning the six-figure prize.

That figure constitutes a scarcely-believable 10,000,000% ROI — not bad for a $1 tournament!

Final Table Recap

After "3只羊" as eliminated on the very first hand, it looked like "Stoffels" — who came into the final table as one of the two big stacks — was looking to push the tempo. Despite doubling up eventual runner-up "ft抂把孑" they eliminated "Ahhub" to close the gap to the leader.

However, a pivotal clash between the two big stacks saw "Stoffels" eliminated after running pocket fives into the pocket nines of "嗅也也"

From then on, "嗅也也" ran away with it. "侧涅进攻马" secured one double up, but besides that there were no major blows landed as "嗅也也" held on for the victory.
