Wenhao Ying is a 24-year-old grad student who recorded his first tournament cash just over 2 years ago. He’s mostly self-taught, learning the game by watching training videos online. Those videos must be very good because he held the chip lead most of Day 3 and went wire-to-wire here on Day 4.
He warmed up in the SixMax first, finishing 5th for $8,420, against some of the best players in the game. He did the same at this final table, up against some of the best and he held his own.
For his efforts in this event, he will collect $200,000* and take home his first Borgata Open trophy. This is his first reported tournament win, but certainly won’t be his last!
