The World Poker Tour has been traversing the country during the Season XXI Main Tour, bringing large fields and massive prize pools along with them.

However, the last three stops all left us wanting more. The events at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Choctaw Casino and Resort, and the Gardens Casino played to the final six players and stopped before crowning new champions, planning to bring them all to Vegas for live-streamed action.

Today, the first of those three final tables picks back up at the HyperX Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Over the next three days, all of the players from those three final tables will coalesce for WPT final table madness.

We’re still eagerly awaiting the final six as they play down to that number today. Ryan Salunga leads the remaining eight, but WPT Ambassador Brad Owen is still in the mix.

First two tables: The Bin Weng Show?

That’s right, you saw correctly, Bin Weng is leading two WPT final tables at the same time. A lot of work goes into preparing for a final table. Big Weng has to be prepared for two of them on back-to-back days. It doesn’t hurt that he’s the chip leader in both fields.

“I’ve put a lot of work into my game last year,” said Weng back at the Seminole event. “Looks like it’s paying off.”

It absolutely is, as Weng shows he’s unlocked something that works for him. He’s already won “The Return” championship at the Borgata for $1 million and a WSOP Circuit ring this year. Holding a massive chip lead for today’s event, and a small chip lead over Jared Jaffee in Friday’s event, can he seal the deal in both and earn two WPT titles in two days?

The schedule and where to watch

Each day’s stream will begin at 4:30 pm local time in Las Vegas. They will all be available for free on WPT’s YouTube, Facebook, and Twitch channels. The beloved Jeff Platt and Jamie Kerstetter will provide commentary for all three final tables.

Will Bin Weng make history and be the first to win two WPT titles in back-to-back days? Will WPT Ambassador Brad Owen make his way to Las Vegas for Saturday’s final table? Or will the myriad of other experienced players spoil their party? We’ll see how this one plays out. No matter what happens, it’s sure to be a party at the HyperX Arena here in Las Vegas.

We hope you’re watching with us, but we’ll also be on the ground providing coverage throughout the event. You can also follow along with the WPT live updates.
