I do not want to win a bracelet in this WSOP series because i do not want to fly with the plane too many hours up there. I have not been on the plane until now and i can not sleep on the plane. This Philippine tells the truth mostly but i think the percentages is not 100%. Anyway, i congratulate him for his bracelet who won in this tournament.

the geography of the winners is expanding and it is certainly very nice .... poker is becoming more popular and more people are playing it .... but some countries are making restrictions for their players and it's certainly sad .... while in Russia you can play poker. .. I would like that there was no prohibition

Many congratulations to Mike Takayama on winning his first bracelet and the first prize of $198,568. I was surprised to learn that nobody from the Philippines had ever won a bracelet before this

They are right on their description about the final table with the winner kicking
seven players out.
He took the first position almost by himself, meaning that he did all the job,
with the kicks Smile
That will be a game to remember for this "noob" bracelet winner Smile

You could reach the US shores via ship/cruise too but it would probably cost you more than a buy-in to the WSOP Main Event.

Mike Takayama? He is Filipino, right? He doesn't look like Japanese people to me, but Takayama is a very common Japanese surname meaning "high mountain." Anyway, congratulations to Mike for topping a field of 2,065 players to win the 2018 WSOP event #59!
