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.

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!
