Little seeks POY repeat at WPT Foxwoods

Jonathan Little
Jonathan Little heads into this week's WPT Foxwoods Poker Classic with a legitimate shot at back-to-back POY titles.

The man they call FieryJustice is headed to the forests of Connecticut this week with even more than a WPT title and millions of dollars on the line.

In fact, Jonathan Little will enter this week's Foxwoods Poker Classic within striking distance of a repeat performance here in Season 7.

Little sits tied for third on the interview with PokerListings following the win. "I wasn't really excited about the Mirage one [his first WPT victory], for some reason."

"I mean, I was excited, but this one confirms that I can actually do it again and it's not just a huge luckfest."

Full Tilt's Erik Seidel is actually the Foxwoods Poker Classic returning champ, but it's Little who returns to Connecticut this week with a chance to make history. And he likes his spot.

"Foxwoods is a great place to play poker," Little said. "They have a giant poker room and they always take care of their players."

And the opposition?

"In general, I think the players are worse than the players in Vegas," he said, before suggesting the same is true for every other casino in the world.

"I do think the players [at Foxwoods] are a little more stubborn than normal."

The main event at Foxwoods begins Friday, with the first and only Day 1 getting under way at noon Eastern Time.

Action will continue over the weekend and into next week, with the final table playing out on Wednesday, April 8.

For his part, Little remains realistic about his shot at double POY honors.

"I'm probably one in 50 to take the top four in Foxwoods and one in 100 to take the top five at Bellagio, so I'm probably around 3% to repeat," he said.
