Coming Home, Badecker Looks To Add Another Major Series To The Resume

CPPT Main Event
Level 8 (250/500/75)
Total Entrants: 177
Andrew Badecker (Vernon, CT)
While a look at Andrew Badecker's tournament resume shows results from nearly every corner of the globe, the Connecticut native made some of his first big scores at Foxwoods and he's returned to his "home casino" to play in the Card Player Poker Tour Main Event, recently taking his seat at an outer table.

Badecker's tournament history, viewable via the Hendon Mob database, quickly shows that if there is a poker tour or series out there, he's probably cashed in it as he has results at the WSOP, the European Poker Tour, the World Poker Tour and the UKIPT, as well results from nearly every "local" stop on the East Coast circuit.

Badecker's not only cashed in all those series, but he's also made numerous Final Tables totaling close to $1,700,000 in career live tournament earnings.

While he has won two Borgata Poker Open titles, the crowning moment in Badecker's poker career without a doubt came in the summer of 2011 when he won his first WSOP Bracelet, coming in a $1,500 Shoot Out event, earning him $370,000.

Badecker almost did a double on that bracelet the next year, making another deep run in a $1,500 event, finishing 3rd for another massive WSOP score, making $225,000.

While it's been a while since his last Foxwoods score, he's certainly returned to his "home casino" with experiences, both on and off the felt, that close to no one in this field can lay claim to, making him a serious threat to notch his first Foxwoods cash since 2011 and potentially add another major poker tour score to his impressive resume here on the CPPT.
