The 2012 Foxwoods Poker Classic $600 buy-in no-limit hold’em, deep stack event opened with 486 entrants, and after six hours of final table play, David Grandieri of Danbury, CT captured the championship trophy, commemorative watch, and $58,516 for his first place finish. Another Connecticut player, Brookfield’s Morgan Litwin, claimed $33,605 for second place.

 Nick Bennett moved allin when the action was four handed, only to be called by Litwin, who showed As-Qs to Bennett’s Th-8h. Litwin hit top pair on the Qc-5c-3c flop, and with the 5s and 7d to complete the board, Bennett collected $17,065 to take home to Bennington, VT for his fourth place finish.

 Patrick Cronin of Norfolk, MA raised all-in with Js-9s and was called by David Grandieri with pocket nines. The Ac-8d- 6d on the flop left Patrick hoping for a jack or runnerrunner for a straight. The 7d on the turn and 8d on the river relegated Cronin to third place and a payday of $21,363.

 After half an hour of heads-up play, Litwin raised to $250,000 and was called by Grandieri. On a Ts-9d- 7d flop, Litwin moved all-in and was called. Litwin turned over Qc-Jh for an open ended straight draw, while Grandieri showed Qs-9c for middle pair.

His pair of nines held-up after the 7h and 4c completed the board, leaving Morgan Litwin with second place money of $33,605, while David Grandieri captured $58,516 for his victory.
