Jessica Bian Hong Yang became, just two days ago, officially the the world's first WPT title holder in Asia after taking down the WPT Korea Main Event earlier this week for $50,000 main prize.

According to, Bian Yang is mainly a cash game pro, but she has a good understanding of tournament as well, and those abilities with a bit of luck helped her to beat the field of 175 players total, that included several other tough competitors and pros.

One of those competitors included Iori Yogo, who is currenly third on the Japan’s all-time money list. Yogo made it to the heads-up play, but couldn't take the lead back and steal the title from Bian Yang. In the final hand, Yogo put his tournament life at risk with pocket deuces and lost the title to Yang, who called with pocket eights.

Yang earned KRW56.992 million (approx. $50,000) for the win, which was also the biggest ever live cash for the Canadian-Korean pro.
