Throughout this Winter Poker Open series, we’ve added to our already thorough blog coverage of every trophy event with a WPO video series. With all due respect to the previous players that we’ve caught up with over the last two weeks, we think we saved the best for last.
Chris Leong just became the most recent World Poker Tour champion, going through a massive and stacked field en route to etching his name on the WPT Champions Cup. We caught up with the New Yorker to talk about what this win means, how supportive his friends were during today’s live streamed final table and how he knew this kind of breakthrough score was not far away.
That officially concludes our coverage of this WPT final table and the BPO blog will now pick up coverage of Event 22, which is the final trophy event of the series currently playing down to a winner in the Event Center.
