World Poker Tour Finals at Foxwoods Crowns a Champion

All hail the champion.

The final table of the 2010 World Poker Tour World Poker Finals $10,000 no-limit hold’em main event began on Tuesday at Foxwoods Resort Casino.

A large number of draw outs took the final table past 200 hands, and past the midnight hour into Wednesday before crowning a champion.

Players moved all inconsistently throughout the night, but they also consistently found the cards they needed to survive.

In the end, a young poker talent stood atop the field of 242 players as a WPT champion that won a title in his very first WPT event.

Jeff Forrest, a 22-year-old rising poker talent beat Dave Inselberg heads up after the two outlasted an impressive final-table lineup that included Keven Stammen, Mohsin Charania, Nikolai Yakovenko, and Thomas Marchese.

Here are the numbers:
