After two years of snow storms coming between the players and a couple of their beloved tournaments, they have some pent-up play ready to unleash. Oh there have been plenty of other events, but no player wants to miss any of them, especially this million dollar guarantee, Foxwoods Poker Classic. Tournament Director, Juan DeJesus has long been the go-to guy. One of Juan’s contributions has been the addition of a lot more guarantees on a selection of the events.
