Jeremy Meacham Wins WSOPC Foxwoods for $156k

Jeremy Meacham Wins WSOPC Foxwoods for $156kThe WSOP Circuit Foxwoods Main Event was held in Mashantucket, Connecticut, with a total of 486 players paying $1,675 each to create a prize pool of $729,000. In the end, the tournament was eventually won by Jeremy Meacham, who defeated Sean Thomson heads-up, to claim the title, as well as the biggest score of his career worth $156,735.
The 30-year-old poker pro has enjoyed a number of deep runs at previous WSOPC events, and following a victory which pushes his career earnings to $743,316, Meacham stated:
“The third time’s the charm, I guess. It feels good to finally get there. Sixth, third, and first is a nice little progression.”
Meacham finished Day 1a as the chip leader, and second only to Galen Hall by the end of Day 2, a position he subsequently maintained after reaching the final table of nine on Day 3, with Mike Azzaro leading the way. Amongst the notable pros seeing a return on their money, but falling short of a final table appearance was Dave Stefanski in 39th ($3,061), Greg Himmelbrand in 27th ($4,884), Mike Dentale in 18th ($7,946), and Cory Waaland in 11th ($11,736).
Jeremy Meacham and Sean Thomson then managed to dominate the last phase of tournament, ultimately progressing all the way through to heads-up play. At this stage, Thomson enjoyed a 7,035,000 to 2,685,000 chip advantage over Meacham, but the tides soon turned after Meacham won an A-10 versus K-J all-in preflop battle, with the Oak Bluffs pro later pulling away to a 2-to-1 advantage when the deciding hand was played.
Meacham moved all-in preflop holding pocket twos, and after being called by his opponent with A-Q, the dealer laid out a Q-3-2-7-10 board to relegate Sean Thomson to a runner-up finish worth $96,957. Meanwhile, Jeremy Meacham was crowned the winner, and was also awarded a free seat for the 2017/2018 WSOP Global Casino Championship.
Final Table Results:
1: Jeremy Meacham $156,735
2: Sean Thomson $96,957
3: Robert Ricciuti $70,713
4: Michael Azzaro $52,488
5: Galen Hall $39,366
6: Filippos Stavrakis $30,035
7: Lawrence Greenberg $23,328
8: Ralph Massey $18,225
9: Fabio Dagata $14,602
