Tuiofu Hunkin - WPTDS Main Event Champion - $121,000

The first three-plus months of 2019 is turning out to be an extended poker coming-out party for Tuiofu Hunkin. 

With about $6,000 in career poker tournament wins going in to this year, Hunkin began the year with a 19th in The Opener here at TVPokerRoom, following up three weeks ago with his first posted tournament win, a $50,565 score in the Bay 101 Shooting Star $1,100 Prelim.

Fast forward to today, where he is the new WPTDeepStacks Thunder Valley Champion, earning $121,000 - including an entry in the 2019 WPTDS Season Championship.

Hunkin's career poker resume, in 3 months time, moved the needle from $6,000 to $200,000 with this win. He defeats Yury Klimenkov in a brief heads-up match that was part of a rather brief nine-handed final table, finishing in slightly more than three hours.

Here's the overall tournament final results.
