While checking out the WPT website, I learned that there is a WPT tournament coming up at Foxwoods (a mere 1.5 hours away) in October. I checked the tournament schedule and there are some tempting options. BUT…I am heading to Las Vegas for the WSOP Main Event Final Table close to that same time, so I think I’ll save my cash for playing in Vegas. Thought I’d post information on the tournament for those who can attend.
Foxwoods World Poker Tour Finals
Dates: Oct. 19 – Nov. 10, 2009
Foxwoods Resort Casino
350 Trolley Line Boulevard
Mashantucket, CT 06338-3777
No limit hold’em, NL hold’em shoutouts, 7-Card Stud, 7-Card Stud 8+, Omaha 8+, Pot Limit Omaha High, H.O.S.E.
Eligibility: Foxwoods’ website says,
…The tournament is open to the public giving anyone the opportunity to mix it up with many top pros and amateurs.
Also from the website,
Foxwoods WPT World Poker Room is the largest poker room on the East Coast with 104 tables and 24 hours a day of continuous action. With a wide selection of all the most popular games, including Texas Hold’em, 7-Card Stud and Omaha-8 or better, you will find the right fit …
I think it is curious that the Foxwoods $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em Championship (effectively, its “Main Event”) will be held at the exact same time that the WSOP Main Event Final Table will be played in Las Vegas. The WPT $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em Championship runs Nov. 5 – 10 and the WSOP Main Event Final Table runs Nov. 7 – 10.
It is disappointing because it’s likely that all the poker pros will be in Connecticut instead of viewing the WSOP Main Event Final Table in Las Vegas. waa…waa…waa
