Weinman, who is also the 2017 WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open Main Event and the WPT Season 15 Tournament of Champions (TOC) winner, vaulted to the top of the Player of the Year (POY) standings with the win and made it clear he plans on playing more tournaments this summer.

The top 282 places earned a share of the $1,682,990 prize pool, and this included three Indians, namely Manan Bhandari (32nd for $6,585 ~ ₹5.13 Lakhs), Nishant Sharma (207th for $1,754 ~₹1.25 Lakhs) & India’s first bracelet winner Aditya Sushant (248th for $1,603 ~₹1.37 Lakhs).

Day 3 began at noon (local time) on June 16, with ten players returning one last time to play down to a winner.

Lautaro Guerra (10th for $18,396) and Oliver Weis (9th for $23,277) were eliminated within the first half-hour of play, setting the eight-handed final table into motion.
