Then, he advanced to the Seminole final table a few days ago. Also, he secured a seat in the upcoming Choctaw final table and is eyeing the $400,740 top prize.

Hendon Mob shows that Weng has collected more than $3.4 million in live poker cashes. He stated in a recent interview that he performed dismally late last year as he missed many tournaments including the World Series of Poker (WSOP) series.
