Chino Rheem won the WPT Championship
Not always, but this time the player who dominated the tournament has even become the winner. We speak of Chino Rheem, who finished 4th and 5th with the largest stack, and the sixth and final day did not waste the opportunity to win the biggest tournament of the season World Poker Tour - WPT Championship.
