The final day of $5,300 The Return at The Borgata in Atlantic City ended on Sunday night. The overwhelmingly successful event smashed the $3 million guarantee with a prize pool that reached $5,538,700 thanks to a massive turnout of 1,142 entries. The exciting final table of action saw the final eight play down to a winner in about seven hours of play.
Coming out on top as the winner of the $1,000,000 grand prize was prolific player Bin Weng, who quintupled his previous biggest score and moved his career tournament earnings close to $3 million according to the Hendon Mob.
Weng has been playing many events over the past two years and accumulating many results, but it has not been all smooth sailing for Weng recently.
“To be honest, right now I am happy for sure but I don’t know why I am just not excited at all. I just feel like I was supposed to get this one because for the past six or seven months it was the worst downswing I have ever suffered. I took a whole month’s break in December. I skipped the WPT Wynn Series and tried to figure out what my leaks were. So winning this one means a lot to me and hope this heater can continue.”
“I used to play here a lot. Cash games, tournaments, casino games, I lost a lot of money here,” he said with a chuckle. “I love the Borgata! Borgata is my favorite and my wife’s favorite. She will occasionally travel with me for poker but this stop is her favorite.”
