Ethan ‘Rampage’ Yau is winning in every sense of the word.

Looking to add another Hendon Mob flag and World Poker Tour cash to his ever-expanding poker resume, the WPT Global ambassador and GPI award-winning vlogger hopped a flight to The Star Gold Coast in Australia to enjoy everything the Gold Coast has to offer.

As it turned out, in addition to taking in the sights Down Under, he also happened to take down a tournament at WPT Australia as well.

After getting knocked out of the WPT Australia Championship Event, Yau hopped into the $2,000 AUD Mini Main Event and bested the 416-entry field to outright win the $148,910 AUD first-place prize. (~ $95,678 USD).

The side event victory marks Rampage’s fourth-largest live cash of his career, sitting just behind his 2022 Poker Masters victory ($197,600), 2021 $1,100 MSPT Las Vegas title ($230,379), and, of course, his WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas $25K High Roller win for $894,240.

Yau jokes in his post that “the drought is over” – as if his 2023 results don’t look spectacular on paper. Well, they do.  To date, he’s had 21 live results, 11 of which were five-figure cashes. Add to that a final table in the WSOP online High Roller Championship for more than $80,000 and a WSOP Circuit Ring victory (June 2023) for $41,432, marking his fifth career Circuit Ring and it’s safe to say that his results speak for themselves.

In total,  it’s taken Yau roughly just two years to accumulate more than $2.1 million in live earnings. That’s a lot of winning.

Also of note: Yau wasn’t the only award-winning poker personality making headlines as he was joined at the Mini Main final table by WPT Champions Club member Masato Yokosawa. Yokosawa, who is one of the most popular poker vloggers in his own right, finished in fourth place taking home $45,793 AUD ($29,424 AUD)
