According to Hendon Mob, Jin Hwang’s tournament poker record goes back to the year 2000, meaning he was playing poker before the “boom” and has even been playing longer than the World Poker Tour has been around.
However, it wasn’t until WPT Borgata Poker Open that Hwang has made a name for himself in the poker world, and you can see how it ends for him on Sunday night at 8pm and 11pm on FSN. His deep run at this event will be his largest cash to date, his highest placing so far at a major poker tournament and his first WPT final table. Even with all that said, Hwang does already have history in Atlantic City and at a WPT event. He finished 12th at WPT Borgata Poker Open back in Season VI for an impressive $70,616 pay day.
No matter what happens when WPT Borgata Poker Open: Part 3 airs on Sunday night, Hwang is guaranteed to walk away with at least $280,925, which is not too shabby for a man who plays poker as a hobby. Make sure to tune in to FSN on Sunday at 8pm and 11pm to see how Hwang’s run ends and to watch another WPT Champion be crowned.
