Foxwoods Poker Classic Joins World Poker Tour

New WPT event running March 27 – April 9, 2006

Friday 27th January 2006

Foxwoods Resort Casino announced today that the Foxwoods Poker Classic will join the World Poker Tour (WPT). The tournament, which runs from March 27 to April 9, becomes the second WPT stop at Foxwoods, joining the World Poker Finals, which is held each November.

The tournament is initially expected to draw over 4,000 entries and surpass the former cumulative prize pool of $3.8 million to well over $5 million. The goal is to turn this tournament into as much of a success as the WPF held each November which had nearly 6,000 entries and a prize pool in excess of $12 Million.

“We’re thrilled that the Foxwoods Poker Classic is the second WPT event hosted by Foxwoods for season four,” said Kathy Raymond, Director of Poker Operations at Foxwoods. “It really raises the bar for the event and takes it from a regional tournament to a national one. This gives Foxwoods yet another chance to host one of the world’s most prestigious poker events and enables our players to compete against the best of the best.”
