Andrew Neeme and Brad Owen’s Meet-Up Game Returns to WPT Prime Cambodia
WPT Ambassadors Andrew Neeme and Brad Owen are preparing to host one of their famous Meet-Up Games (MUG) at the upcoming WPT Prime Cambodia festival. WPT Prime returns to NagaWorld Integrated Resort in Phnom Penh, Cambodia between March 9-21, with Neeme and Owen’s eagerly anticipated Meet-Up Game pencilled in for March 15.
March 15 at 1:00 p.m. local time is when the latest Meet-Up Game kicks off. At least 12 tables of $1/$3 and $2/$5 No-Limit Hold’em cash games will run, with Neeme and Owen playing at the 5-star hotel and luxury casino, giving cash game players and fans of their pair’s vlogs a chance to rub shoulders with them. Following the cash game action, Neeme and Owen are hosting a meet and greet from 8:30-10:00 p.m. complete with complimentary food and drinks.
Neeme was in the southeast Asia in 2022 when the WPT Prime tour stopped off in Cambodia.
“I had the pleasure of traveling to Cambodia last year, and it was an unforgettable experience with great food, great people, and great poker. I’m happy to have the opportunity to return and excited to run back the Meet-Up Game.”
Owen was not in Cambodia last year. Indeed, this coming March will be the first time the popular pro has played poker in the Asian country.
“After hearing about Andrew’s time in Cambodia, I really wanted to make the trip as well. I couldn’t let him have all the fun! The MUG is going to be a great time and I’m also pumped to play some tournament poker in Cambodia for the first time.”
The MUG takes place one day before the $1,100 buy-in WPT Prime Cambodia Main Event, a five-day affair boasting a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool. It is likely the guarantee will be blown out of the water, at least if the 2022 edition of the WPT Prime Cambodia Main Event is anything to go by.
In August 2022, some 1,050 players bought in and created a $1,008,100 prize pool. Philippines’ David Erquiaga triumphed in the 2022 WPT Prime Cambodia Main Event and walked away with $137,008 plus a $10,400 seat to the WPT World Championship at the Wynn Las Vegas. The high-volume pro defeated Taiwan’s Chi Je Chu heads-up, resigning the runner-up to a $120,980 consolation prize. Third-place finisher Junnie Pamplona banked $106,482, the Main Event’s other six-figure payout.
