Foxwoods Poker Classic Series Attracting the Pros

Poker Pro Cory Waaland is probably most well known for  success in the World Series of Poker Circuit events. Waaland has seven WSOP gold Circuit rings to his name, the third highest in Circuit history.  There are currently three players tied with nine rings, two that have earned eight rings, and Walaand is the only player to have earned seven total rings, and he has amassed them in just fives years' time.  Walaand decided to make an appearance in today's Foxwoods Multi-Flight Re-Entry Event #11 (Flight D) to take his chance at the $250,000 guaranteed prize pool.

Walaand isn't the only pro that this series has attracted. A few days ago Vanessa Selbst tweeted out that she too will be returning to Foxwoods next weekend for the $2,200 No-Limit Hold'em Championship event, and potentially the $5,000 No-Limit High Roller Event.  Selbst has just under $12,000,000 in live poker earnings, and is the first and only female to have won three WSOP bracelets in open-field events.

It's also been rumored that poker pro Galen Hall will return to Foxwoods next weekend for the bigger events at the end of the series. Hall has over $4 million in earnings, and won the Bahamas PCA Main Event back in 2011 for a monster $2,300,000.

As per usual, Foxwoods continues to draw some of the biggest names in poker with their amazing structures and huge guaranteed prize pools.
