Glen Minxolli
As we pick up on the Event 5 Monster Stack action we see Glen Minxolli sitting behind a big stack. In the previous blind level the action folded to the cutoff who limped in and the small blind raised to 725.

Minxolli called from the big blind and the player in the cutoff called. They saw a flop of Q♣️6♥️8♥️ and the small blind checked. Minxolli bet 900 and the cutoff called. 

The small blind check-raised to 3,200 and Minxolli made it 7,900. The cutoff folded and the small blind called. Both players checked the 4♥️ turn card and the river was the 2♣️.

The small blind checked and Minxolli moved all in for just over 21,000. His opponent called and Minxolli turned over 6♣️6♠️ for a flopped set of sixes. The player fired his hand into the muck and Minxolli earned the early double up.

Glen Minxolli- 67,000

Alex Jim Wins Event 2 ($134,570)

Event 2 of the Foxwoods WSOP Circuit was the $600 NLH event with a $500,000 guarantee. There was a massive turnout with 1,560 entries creating a prize pool of more than $800,000.

After two long days of play it was the New York native Alex Jim in the winners circle. Jim started Day 2 in the middle of the pack with just under 100,000 but picked his spots and stayed patient throughout the day.

He secured key double-ups time after time and won the biggest pot of the tournament during three handed play holding pocket kings when it mattered most. Jim then brought more than a 2-1 chip lead into heads-up play.

Jeremy Wing managed to take the chip lead during heads-up play but Jim kept his composure and quickly battled back. The $134,570 first place cash is Jim's largest live tournament score and he wins his first major title along with the coveted WSOP Circuit ring.
