Late Sunday night, Chanracy Khun proved heads-up master Doug Polk is human after winning the $25,000 Heads-Up bracelet.

Chanracy Khun, a well-known player in the Montreal area, prior to his bracelet victory, Kuhn had more than $1.3 million in career earnings including a WPT title from Barcelona in 2013, the largest score of his career for more than $232,000.

Kuhn defeated Marko Grujic in the round of 64, Landon Tice in the quarterfinals, and Sean Winter in the semifinals.

Khun’s road was a very tough one as he had to face the Event #2: 25,000 High Roller Six-Handed champion from just a few days ago in Alexander Vuilleumier who he defeated. 

He took down Hungarian high roller Gabor Szabo to make the money before a big win over Landon Tice in the quarters, which he was very gracious about. 

His semifinal match vs. Sean Winter lasted all of one level as it shockingly ended after only a few hands. The action was captured on live streaming.

Here are the final results.
