Shiina Okamoto from Japan Wins 2024 WSOP Ladies Event

Japanese poker player Shiina Okamoto has won the 2024 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Ladies Event, defeating 1,245 participants. This victory comes a year after she finished second in the same tournament.

In the 2023 WSOP $1,000 ladies no-limit hold’em championship, Okamoto finished as the runner-up. Determined to succeed this year, she posted on social media at the start of the 2024 event, saying, “I want to retrieve the things I left behind last year.”

Okamoto achieved her goal by defeating Jamie Kerstetter, a two-time WSOP Circuit ring winner and poker commentator, in the final showdown. She secured the top prize of $171,732.

Speaking through Naoya Kihara, the first Japanese bracelet winner, Okamoto shared her thoughts with reporters. She admitted that when she made the social media post, she didn’t fully believe it was possible. However, by the end of day two, with a large stack of chips, she began to see victory within reach.

Okamoto’s win has significantly boosted her tournament earnings to $408,567, with the majority coming from her WSOP performances.
