Although we are just a day removed from the Card Player Poker Tour Main Event, which saw Fred Paradis outlast a stacked Day 2 field and Final Table to claim his fifth Foxwoods Poker title, it's never to early to start looking forward and if the next Foxwoods series isn't already marked on your calendar, get your pens out and close out your schedules from Saturday March 14th - Monday March 30th because the Foxwoods Poker Classic is going to be another can't miss series.
While the CPPT series had a Main Event with a $300,000 guarantee, the Foxwoods Poker Classic has two events who's guarantees will make that look like nothing as the opening Event 1 of the series and the FPC Championship will both have $500,000 guaranteed prize pools.
The Championship guarantee is massive and should draw some of the best players in the area to battle for the FPC title, but the opening event has potentially the best value Foxwoods has ever offered as you can get a piece of a $500,000 GTD prize pool for a $600 buy-in.
First place in that opening event should be somewhere north of $125,000 and with four starting flights for this massive event, there should be no reason to miss out on this potentially life changing tournament.
In between the opening and FPC Championship events are close to two other "main events" with another $600,000 in guaranteed prize pools, including a $100,000 GTD even and a $150,000 GTD event.
There are also smaller guaranteed tournaments for the "specialists" in the poker world, including Pot Limit Omaha, Omaha Hi-Low, 7 Card Stud, HOSE and many different variants of NLH including different stack sizes and level length.
