Jeremy Meacham Takes Down The First Place In The 2017 World Series of Poker Circuit Foxwoods Main Event


Jeremy Meacham Takes Down The First Place In The 2017 World Series of Poker Circuit Foxwoods Main Event

Poker-pro Jeremy Meacham won the 2017 World Series of Poker Circuit Foxwoods Main Event in his third time entering the event after 2015, 2016 and finally this year. Meacham won the event and took away the prize of over $156,000, along with the coveted gold ring, after beating a pool of 486 players.

Meacham finished in the sixth position in 2015, and in the third place in 2016. While 2017 proved to be the player’s year where he won the event after defeating Sean Thomson in heads-up play

Foxwoods Resorts & Casino hosted the World Series of Poker Circuit. Meacham entered the final table of the tournament with the second highest chip, with Mika Azzaro leading the chips. The tournament in its final table with nine players was eventually cut down to just two players remaining, Meacham and Thomson.

Thomson was leading the hand with 7 million in chips as compared to Meacham’s 2.6 million; it looked more like an easy win for Thomson. Eventually, Meacham took charge and moved all in the final hand, knocking Thomson out in second place, securing his first title in the event, after three years of struggle.
