The 2016 WSOPC Foxwoods Main Event winner was Julian Sacks, who took nearly $150,000 along with his Circuti Gold Ring back to his home in Ridgewood, New Jersey. Here’s a look at the complete final table results from last year: 1st: Juliam Sacks – $148,350

With so many players in town, and tournaments starting as early as 11 a.m., the games will be running around the clock. You’re also likely to find the stakes being played at many tables to be higher than usual.
