The $1,650 NLH Main Event drew a total of 168 entries creating a prize pool of just over $250,000. When the dust settled Max Hoffman was the last man standing.
Hoffman flew under the radar for much of Day 1 and returned on Day 2 near the bottom of the chip counts with just 56,600. He began to heat up late on Day 2 and when play concluded he was leading the final six players with 1,669,000.
He returned on Day 3 with the chip lead and never relinquished it. Hoffman who is primarily a cash game players had just three reported live tournament cashes on his Hendon Mob before his Main Event victory.
This is his largest career score and he takes home $63,555 along with his first Foxwoods Poker Mega Stack Challenge title.
