"Since I've been playing poker I've been dreaming about this moment so what can I say… It means the world. It means everything and more for me and for my family." He went on to give more context behind why his reaction was as emotional as it was, "I did this for my dad, who's battling cancer now. Dad, let's do it."

Shota Nakanishi Wins Event #60: $10,000 Short Deck No-Limit Hold'em for $277,212

Japan is well represented in this year's World Series of Poker with Shota Nakanishi's big bracelet win.

"I play lots of short deck, many times," Nakanishi said after his victory. "I've been playing online for three years. I also enjoy no-limit hold'em and sometimes pot-limit Omaha."

He had a large backing of Japanese supporters on the rail and they burst into cheers on the final hand of the day.

"I'm so happy! Very happy right now," Nakanishi said with his supporters surrounding him. "I'll play the Main Event, yes," Nakanishi confirmed he will be sticking around Las Vegas for the Main Event but likely won't be playing anything else until next year. He also noted that his big plans for the quarter-million payday will be putting the money into the bank for the future."

He is now up $292,441 in live career earnings.
