The Foxwoods Poker Classic $2,500 NLH Championship drew a total of 220 entries to create a prize pool of nearly $500,000. It was a stacked field full of plenty of big name tournament pros including Vanessa Selbst, Olivier Busquet, Galen Hall, Brian Altman and David Paredes just to name a few.

When the dust settled it was Omar Saeed in the winners circle. Saeed bought in at the start of Day 2 and quietly climbed the chip counts throughout the day. He came into Day 3 just 10,000 chips behind chip leader Curt Kohlberg.

Saeed picked his spots and steadily chipped up at the final table before rocketing to the top of the counts when his ace king held up against the ace jack of Chris Tryba in an all in pre-flop confrontation.

He never looked back brining a 2-1 chip advantage in to heads-up play against Curt Kohlberg. It was a heads-up match for the ages as the stacked swung back and forth. 

In the final hand all of the chips went in on the10♠️8♦️6♣️ with Saeed holding 10♦️8♠️ against the Q♥️10♣️ of Kohlberg. 

Saeed will take home $119,270 for his victory along with his second Foxwoods Poker title bringing his live career tournament earnings to over $600,000.
