The opening event of the Foxwoods Poker Classic was the $600 NLH $500,000 Guaranteed. There was a massive turnout of 1,175 entries creating a prize pool of over $601,000.
When just four players remained in the early morning hours they agreed to an adjusted payout deal. Sean Thomson took home the trophy and $70,368 while Jason Pardy notched his largest career tournament score of over $50,000.
Both players have taken their seats here on Day 1E of the HighFlyer Stack NLH and are putting their chips to work in the last event of the series.
Pardy wasted no time finding a double up and he was over the 200,000 chip mark within minutes of joining the field.
