Bin Weng, the Chinese poker pro currently based in Philadelphia, is on a winning streak that would put any poker player to envy. His dominant performance in 2023 has seen him clinching several titles and raking in massive winnings. His latest triumph is the inaugural World Poker Tour (WPT) Everyone for One Drop held at the Wynn, Las Vegas.
This victory, his second WPT win of the year and third in career, brought Weng a whopping $2,227,054, surpassing his previous career-best win of $1,128,250 at the WPT Showdown Championship at WPT Seminole. In this year alone, he amassed nearly $5,000,000 in live tournament earnings.
Bin Weng's 2023 Wins:
|Jul 9, 2023||WPT $10,500 EveryOne for One Drop||$2,227,054|

The WPT Everyone for One Drop tournament featured a $10,500 buy-in and attracted a massive field of 1,676 entries, leading to a prize pool of $16,257,200. Bin Weng entered the final table with a chip lead and continued to show his dominance throughout the event. Despite Scott Baumstein initially seizing the chip lead following a double up against Weng, he was unable to maintain this advantage. When the tournament was whittled down to three players, Weng, Niko Koop, and Baumstein agreed to an ICM chop of the remaining prize money but played on for the trophy and an additional $400,000.
Weng ultimately prevailed in heads-up play against Baumstein. In a climactic final hand, where Baumstein went all-in with a turned straight and Weng snap called with a flopped set. High-stakes pro needed to dodge the river to stay alive, but the river paired, netting Weng the title and the grand prize.
Given his impressive track record in this year’s WPT season, it will take a significant effort for any player to challenge Weng in the WPT Player of the Year race. Weng’s lead will only extend and any competitor looking to challenge him in the race, will need to put fort a truly exceptional performance.
