The 2007 WPT Foxwoods Poker Classic was probably the most forgotten World Poker Tour event ever. The reason? Many of the world's top pros were in Monte Carlo, playing the 2007 EPT Monte Carlo Championship. The 2007 WPT Foxwoods Poker Classic event had hardly any big name pros playing, even though there was a prize pool of almost $4 million dollars.
The winner of the event was Raj Patel, who took home almost $1.3 million dollars in first place prize money, a championship bracelet and an entry into the $25,000 World Poker Tour championship event at the Bellagio later this year.
The only "big" names that managed to crack the top 20 were Nam Le, who finished 11th for a prize of $56,531, and John-Robert Bellande, who finished 19th, taking home a prize of $25,341.
The World Poker Tour may be well-advised to change the date of their Foxwoods event next year so that it doesn't coincide with the EPT Monte Carlo event. If I had to choose between the two and I were a big-name pro, you better believe I would play at the Monte Carlo event as well.
