New York poker pro Vadim Trincher added a first place prize of $731 000 to his impressive list of 18 big game cashes this week when he took down the World Poker Tour Foxwoods Poker Classic, bringing his total career earnings to $1 126 243.
Surviving a determined field of 259 players and an unusual five handed final table caused by his simultaneous elimination of two players in one hand, Trincher continued to dominate the game until he faced and defeated Amnon Filippi in the heads up, ending the game on the 195th hand of final table action.
All five final table players received six-figure paydays, with the lowest amount going to fifth placed Alex Perelberg who took home $106 007; second placed Amnon Filippi collected a check for $409 405.
