The Foxwoods Poker Classic Tournament (scheduled for March 4-17th) is one big reason. The World Series of Poker Circuit Events (running from March 27th-April 8th) are the other big reason. Action-packed poker never sleeps at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut. And it JUST got better. Starting out with a $300 No limit hold’em Deep Stacks (Re-Entry) at 11am on Monday March 4th, that breaks down to $260+$40 with 15,000 chips and 30 minute blinds, it’s off and running. The same day, if you are a 7-Card Stud player, this starts at 1pm, buy-in $350+$50, 10,000 in chips, with 30 minute blinds. If you miss the Monday tournament, show up at Foxwoods on Tuesday and play the No limit Bounty (Deep Stack) re-entry event, for $160+$40+$100.This series will include more opportunities than you could hope for. I will highlight some of them for you, but if you can get your hands on our last issue of Poker Player, you can read the entire schedule on the back cover, and our big tabloid size makes for easy reading!
So you have more Stud, more Deep Stacks, Bounty, Hose, Omaha Hi-Lo 8+, PLO High Only (Re-Entry,) a Ladies Only No Limit Deep Stack, and the big championship events to choose from. By now you should be in the groove for even more poker. Kick off: March 27th at noon, the World Series of Poker Circuit Events running straight thru to April 8th.
