Poker pro Luis Henrique Shinike Kamei claims a first-place prize of R$190,000 and the champion bracelet
Kings Series of Poker (KSOP) has crowned its latest Main Event champion only a few days ago. This year’s sixth installment of one of Brazil’s most popular poker series took place from October 31 through November 6 at Actuall Convention Hotel in the city of Belo Horizonte.
The festival featured 26 tournaments and the four-day Main Event was the star of the series. The tournament attracted a massive field of 717 entries who eventually crashed the guaranteed prize pool of R$1 million to generate R$2.1 million in prize money.
Poker pro Luis Henrique Shinike Kamei was the player to emerge as the victor of the Main Event and to be awarded the tournament trophy and a first-place prize of R$190,000. Kamei also received the shiny champion bracelet to remember his participation and eventual win in the series.
The Main Event featured five starting flights and three more days of action. After certain ups and downs throughout the days, Kamei eventually entered the final table of the Main Event as the chip leader. He maintained his advantage for quite a while, but eventually entered the heads-up match, the final stage of the game, as the player holding the smaller stack.
Action-Packed Heads-Up
Kamei faced Tiago Toscano in the final two-handed match. Despite his initial disadvantage at the start of the duel, an important hand helped Kamei improve his situation and eventually build a formidable stack.
And on what turned out to be the final hand in play, the two players got it all in on the flop. Kamei had the advantage at that point and the blank turn and river cards did little to help his opponent move ahead. As mentioned above, Kamei collected R$190,000 from the Main Event’s prize pool, while Toscano had to settle for R$120,000.
Here it is important to note that at some point during three-handed play, Kamei, Toscano and Guilherme Gomes, the third-place finisher in the tournament, agreed to strike a deal and split what had left of the prize pool. Gomes took home R$150,000.
Kamei is a familiar name across Brazil’s poker community. The player started playing poker in 2006. In his post-victory interview, he said that he got into the game by watching it on television. He then began buying books and studying its fundamentals together with his brother. Kamei initially played poker online. Then he moved to Curitiba and that was when he developed a real passion for the game, the player recalled.
Of becoming the latest KSOP champion, Kamei said that the feeling was incredible. The winner thanked his rail and dedicated his latest poker title to his family and his girlfriend.
The Belo Horizonte festival was actually the final leg of this year’s edition of the KSOP. As mentioned earlier, the major poker event featured 26 tournaments that were played over the course of the past week.
