The tournament ran over the course of three days and brought in 111 total entries helping the prize-pool grow to a staggering $11,100,000. When the third and final day began, 10 players remained and after starting the final day with the chip lead and never letting it go, Oya stands alone atop what was an absolutely stacked field of high roller regulars.

Winner's Reaction

Oya expressed through a translator that he was absolutely elated to take down his first bracelet in such a huge tournament. The accomplishment was made even more special by the fact that the victory doubles his lifetime career live earnings and that it will be only the ninth bracelet to ever head home with a player from Japan. Oya isn't done in The Bahamas yet, though, as he plans to finish out the WSOP Paradise before heading to Las Vegas for the WPT World Championship where he'll look to put himself in position to chase down another seven-figure score.

Action of the Day

The unofficial final table of nine was reached when Leonard Maue lost to the ace-high of Koon before exiting in 10th. Lucas Greenwood was soon to follow after finding the exit in a sick three-handed preflop all in situation that saw aces cracked by queens. Danny Tang followed shortly thereafter when he called off from the big blind only to be out-flopped and sent home in eighth. Ben Heath became the seventh-place finisher after a the runout gave Oya a runner-runner straight to crack the aces of Heath and send him out the door.

Ivan Luca found the rail in sixth place during the same level as Heath after getting his remaining chips all-in with king-high and remaining unimproved after five cards.

The final table lost it's most decorated member when four-time WSOP bracelet winner Nick Schulman lost a preflop all-in from a dominating position when Koon spiked a king on the turn to close the door on bracelet number five for Schulman. Quan Zhou got in less than ten blinds against the eventual champion and couldn't stave off elimination when Oya turned a straight to send Zhou out the door.

Leon Sturm was pushed close to the door in what became a massive pot where Sturm bet huge on the river with two pair only to lose to the small flush of Oya and be left with only one big blind. He would bust at the hands of Koon the following deal, setting up the heads up battle to follow.

Unfortunately for Koon, that battle was short-lived as only a few hands into the heads up play, Koon would call off his remaining chips to a river jam from Oya. When the cards were on their backs, Koon showed a straight to the nine only to have his suspicions confirmed when Oya turned over a straight to the ten to end the high stakes crusher's run at a second bracelet.

Jason Koon limped the button and Masashi Oya checked his option in the big blind to bring out the 975 flop.

Both players checked through to see the turn bring the 8.

Oya paused before reaching for chips and making a bet worth 1,000,000. Koon made the call and watched as the river brought the 4.

Oya jammed, putting Koon to a decision for his tournament life. Koon stood up and talked his way through the hand while he pondered his action, stating that he had a six for a straight but that he believed Oya to hold the 10x6x for the nut straight.

"I started the hand with 20 big blinds and I'm thinkin' about folding a straight. That's... that's obnoxious, isn't it?", Koon said.

Eventually, he would say, "I hope we're chopping" as he put in the call and turned up Q6 only to see Oya turn over the 106 for a tournament ending straight that sent Koon to the rail in second place for $1,817,000.
