It was a long and grueling five days for Daniel Weinman on his journey toward becoming the latest World Poker Tour Champion. Weinman battled through one of the largest and most talented fields assembled in WPT history to earn his place on the Champions Cup.
Weinman stayed patient through the first four days of the tournament and came into Day 5, fourth in chips. Once at the final table, Weiman caught some well-timed cards and called correctly in the biggest pot of the tournament to eliminate Tyler Kenney.
This marks the largest career victory for Weinman, who is now over the $2,000,000 mark in tournament earnings. As the latest Washington D.C. transplant, Weinman brings his cash game prowess to the nation’s capital and has a growing tournament resume to accompany it.
Weinman doesn’t travel the tournament circuit as much as he used to but he makes it count when he does. This type of victory has been a long time coming for Weinman, who now basks in the glow of WPT glory.
After finishing off Nate Bjerno to win the title, we caught up with Weinman to talk about his victory along with his plans now that he has his first major victory under his belt.
