Poker action kicks off at WPT Foxwoods

Victor Ramdin

The World Poker Tour (WPT) Foxwoods Poker Classic started Monday, and so far two side-events have been played. Peter Maclellan, Jr. won the opening $260 No-Limit Hold'em Modified Shootout event, and Tom Noyes took home Event 2, $560 Seven-Card Stud.

Eleven events will be played in total at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket with the big $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em championship tournament starting on Mar. 30 and ending on Apr. 4.

Last year, 431 players entered the main event, and Annand "Victor" Ramdin walked away with first place and $1,331,889 in prize money, ahead of Alex Jacob and Edward Jordan.

In total, 39 Americans and one Canadian finished in the money in the tournament.

North Americans seem to be the dominant force in 2007 as well, with two out of two U.S. victors so far, and no players from other continents cashing in the opening events.

Will the Europeans, Asians, and South Americans be able to stage a comeback later on in the WPT series at Foxwoods? Keep visiting for regular new updates and live coverage from the main event in our Live Tournaments Section to see for yourself.
