Local amateur Moon Kim* outlasted a field of 364 to capture the 2012 WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star.

Kim, who has about a dozen cashes and $155k in earnings dating back to 1998, earned $960,900 for the win and a $25,500 entry into the season-ending WPT World Championship.

Kim defeated Ubaid Habib ($570,200) heads-up for the title.
