Gordon Wilcox Wins WSOP Circuit Foxwoods Main Event

Posted On 28 Aug, 2018 0

The WSOP (World Series of Poker) has gone ahead with their WSOP Circuit events in full swing in the last month or so. Their most recent tournament series was held at the Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut, with the Main Event being the highlight of this stop.

This was the second stop of the 2018-19 Season of the WSOP Circuit, and everyone had their eyes on the $1,700 Main Event. A field of 519 entries registered to the tournament and the $500k guarantee was beaten, with a new prize pool of $786,285 being generated. It was shared among the top 54 players, with a minimum cash of $2,987.

It was a USA-dominated field and the player who came out on top of this field was Gordon Wilcox, who not only won his maiden WSOP Circuit ring, but also registered his highest live cash and more than quadrupled his career live poker winnings. He bagged the top prize of $169,052 for winning the tournament. He beat many Circuit pros on his way to lifting the title, including Nick Pupillo, 2-time Circuit ring winner.

The Foxwoods Main Event was a 4-day tournament and Wilcox held the chip lead throughout the final day, so he would've seen this big win coming. The series saw a total of 11 ring winners thus far, with the $3,250 High Roller and the $400 Double-Stack events still to conclude at Foxwoods. The biggest winner before the Main Event was Alex Jim, who won $134,570 for shipping the Multi-Flight Event.

Final table results:

  1. Gordon Wilcox - $169,052
  2. Jason Bolton - $104,576
  3. Giuliano Lentini - $76,269
  4. Dan Chalifour - $56,613

  6. Manny Okrah - $32,395
