Japan’s Daisuke Ogita has bagged up more than half the chips in play after the official final table of the WPT Australia Main Event was reached.

Fresh off his biggest career cash of $54,682 after winning the $1,100 Pot Limit Omaha almost a week ago, will return for the final day with 17,625,000 – almost three times more chips than his nearest opponent, Najeem Ajez.

Ogita was heavily active throughout the course of the day, garnering attention for waking up with pocket aces at the right time on multiple occasions, one of which resulted in the elimination of fellow WPT Australia Player of the Festival contender, $550 PLO Champion Leo Kamiya.

Along with Po Ho (3,475,000), De Kun Li (3,675,000), David Tang (3,350,000) and Josh Hutchins (1,425,000), all six players will be returning to battle it out from 11:30am AEST tomorrow (Tuesday) for a top cash prize of $647,470, as well as have their name etched on the Mike Sexton Cup and the chance to take part WPT World Championship at The Wynn Las Vegas in December.
