Crushers On Top At Pompano Beach

Weng had an unparalleled year in poker in 2023 that kicked off with him winning $1 million in The Return at Borgata in January and closed out with victories in the EveryOne for One Drop and $25,000 High Roller at the WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas.

After a breakout year that brought him $6.6 million and earned him the title of GPI Player of the Year, Weng showed he isn't going anywhere in 2024 and won his second Circuit ring and $15,272 in Event #12: $400 No-Limit Hold'em as the Philadelphia grinder defeated heads-up opponent Anderson Premdas.

Earlier in the series, New York's Baumstein defeated a field of 216 runners in Event #6: $400 No-Limit Hold'em to win $16,739 and to win his second ring and add to his $6.4 million in live earnings.

Another notable winner was Florida's Raminder Singh, who calls himself a "True Poker Amateur" despite being an absolute crusher with $2.9 million in earnings and dozens of first-place finishes on The Hendon Mob. Singh tacked on another victory as he took down Event #10: $250 No-Limit Hold'em 30K Starting Stack for $21,580 and his second ring.

Singh had two more final table appearances at Pompano Beach as he finished 5th in Event #13 for $3,358 and 7th in Event #6 for $2,278.

After wrapping up in Pompano Beach, the WSOP Circuit team is headed to North Carolina for WSOP Harrah's Cherokee, which will take place Feb. 15-26.
