“By the end of Day 3, I became another final table chip leader with six remaining. I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t sleep all that well last night because I was too excited,” said Weng. “I don’t know what to say right now. I mean, I’m really, really happy for sure, and I’m really grateful right now for being this far in a short period of time.”

Weng made it to the top of a field of 1,676 entries who generated a $16,257,200 prize pool. Once the players got to three-handed, they made an ICM deal — that’s why third-place finisher Niko Koop won more than runner-up Scott Baumstein.

Year of Bin Weng

His victory follows his amazing May, when he made two back-to-back WPT final tables, which were delayed and filmed in consecutive days at the Luxor’s HyperX Arena.

He won the $3,500 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown on the first day of filming for $1.1 million, but was stopped in fourth-place in the $3,800 WPT Choctaw ($184,600).

He started the year winning $5,300 The Return: A Borgata Championship Event the first week of January for his first tournament cash worth at least $1 million. The EveryOne for One Drop win gives him three million-dollar cashes on the year, which happens to be all of them. It’s his largest score.

The win pushed Weng’s lifetime total over the $7 million mark — $4.3 million came in the last three he won. Of course that — and cashes in 29 other events — puts him right in the Global Poker Index Player of the Year race.

Helping the thirsty

Held as part of the The Wynn Summer Classic, the EveryOne for One Drop is a continuation of the One Drop tournaments that started at the World Series of Poker. Founded by poker player and Circque du Soliel creator Guy Laliberté, the One Drop Foundation is a non-profit with the goal of providing “sustainable access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene for communities everywhere through innovative partnerships, creativity and the power of art.”

And poker.

In 2011, the WSOP partnered with One Drop, and the players who played in those tournaments raised $5.3 million for the organization. This is the first year the WPT took over. The tournament raised $335,200 for One Drop.

“We are delighted to have raised over $300,000 for the One Drop Foundation and their noble mission. We see this as a sign of good things to come in our charity endeavors together,” said WPT CEO Adam Pliska. “Thank you to the Wynn Las Vegas staff for putting on such a spectacular event, and to the players for making a difference in people’s lives.”

The $111,000 buy-in WPT Alpha8 For One Drop is set to conclude today.
