World Series of Poker Circuit for the season 2018/2019 is currently active and one of the stops several days ago was Foxwoods. It was an amazing weekend for the poker lovers, and one player managed to emerge victorious after a tough battle in this place. He managed to win the six-figure sum. The name of the player is Alex Jim, and he is only 26 years old, which is pretty young when it comes to poker players. He managed to beat other 1,560 entries and win a nice sum of $134,570. This is his first gold ring in World Series of Poker Circuit. The name of the event where he won is Event #2: $600 NLH Multi-Flight.

Alex stated, first of all, that he had been grinding hard for a couple of years, but that he had been doing that mostly online. He does not have a lot of history when it comes to live poker. He commented that it was a nice feeling to close one tournament finally and to get a decent score after many unsuccessful tries where he had gotten close to the victory but had never won.

Where He Stands

Alex Jim currently has 50 points in the leaderboard of the stop, and he shared his plans to compete for the Foxwoods Casino Campion title. He has already won a seat for this event which will happen by the end of the season during the Global Casino Championship.

As previously stated, has does not have a lot of big scores. In fact, before winning this one, Jim’s most significant sum was $10,664. He won it as a runner-up in an event called 2015 Foxwoods World Poker Finals Event #4: $300 NLH Big Stack. There was a total of four flights in the tournament, and each of the flight contained 260, 332, 283, and 685 entries respectively. Only 290 players returned for the second day, but 129 of them had to leave with no money, simply due to the fact that only 171 get paid.

Some of the other names that made it to the top 171 and the pay list are Zach Donovan, Matt Wantman, Julie Bae, Greg Himmelbrand (who is a two-timer in MSPT championship), David Paredes, and Antonio Mariano. But World Series of Poker Circuit is a fast-paced series of events, and there are other events that happened in the similar time. In Event #1: $400 NLH Reentry, Vittorio Faricelli managed to top the class and beat 113 entries by winning $11,187 and his first gold ring.

Furthermore, Matthew Deterra won against 360 entries in the Event #3: $250 NLH Turbo and won a total of $16,560. It was also the first gold ring for Deterra. Some of the other events in WPOSC that are happening soon are Event #8: $400 PLO, and Event #12: $3,250 High Roller. Finally, the main event will occur over the weekend – $1,700 Main Event.
