Andrew Neeme and Brad Owen will host a meet-up game in conjunction with the WPT Prime festival in Cambodia. The multi-talented, poker-playing, vlogging superstars look to conquer new territory and new viewers by heading overseas to Southeast Asia.

The game is set for 1:00PM on March 15th, the day before the main event of the festival kicks off. There will be a minimum of twelve tables running with both $1/$2 and $2/$5 stake levels. Once the action at the tables wraps up, Owen and Neeme will hold a Meet & Greet from 8:30-10:00PM complete with complimentary food and drink.

The WPT has been happy with its relationship with Neeme and Owen, and the corporate brass feels like it's the right time to take their show to a different part of the world.

“Last year’s Cambodia festival saw a tremendous turnout at the beautiful NagaWorld Resort,” said Adam Pliska, WPT CEO. “We look forward to another thriving series and having our ambassadors Brad and Andrew onsite to host one of their famous MUGs for players and fans.”

Capitalizing on past success

Both Neeme and Owen seem excited at the opportunity to once again travel the world and spread the game that they both love so much. After the success of their meet-up games in 2022 at WPT Choctaw, WPT Australia, and the WPT Championship at the Wynn, the pair are more than ready to run it back this year.

“I had the pleasure of traveling to Cambodia last year, and it was an unforgettable experience with great food, great people, and great poker,” said Neeme. “I’m happy to have the opportunity to return and excited to run back the Meet-Up Game."

“After hearing about Andrew’s time in Cambodia, I really wanted to make the trip as well. I couldn’t let him have all the fun,” said Owen.

The WPT Prime festival will run from March 9th to the 21st with a multitude of tournaments being offered, including the $550 NagaWorld Millions with four Day 1s, a $550 Mystery Bounty event, a $5,300 Super High Roller, and, of course, the $1,100 Main Event with a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool.
