Yung "Andy" Hwang and Weeds producer Matt Salsberg are the marquee names as the WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open has reached its final table.

Hwang, an experienced grinder from Houston, TX with a WSOP Circuit win to his credit, will be the chip leader heading in with 9,550,000. 

Salsberg, meanwhile, has reached his second WPT final table in just a few months.

The former writer and executive producer for Showtime’s Weeds, Salsberg broke through with his first major win at WPT Paris last September and has navigated another massive field at Borgata to make the final six.

Salsberg will enter play as the short stack with 1,920,000 but with 19 big blinds still has some room to make a move.

Jim Anderson, another former WSOP-C regional champion, is second in chips to Hwang with 7.8 million. Matt Haugen, who final tabled the 2010 PCA main event, is fourth.
