The Final Four agree to a chop!!!
A total of 415 players entered the $400 No-Limit Hold’em event in the 2011 Foxwoods Poker Classic with a total prize pool of $140,892 on the line. After three hours of final table action, the final four agreed to a four way chop and to play one hand w the Championship Trophy going to the winner and the Commemorative Leather Jacket to second.
Gregory Roberts of Westport, CT, Keith Kessmann of Fitchburg, MA, Marc Vincent of West Hartford, CT, and Sherwin Agard of Randolph, MA each earned $18,475, while Marc secured the Jacket with a pair of 3’s and Sherwin claimed the Trophy with a pair of 8’s.
There were twenty nine hopefuls returning at Noon on Monday to resume play, and three hours later the final table had been determined. Within ten minutes Roger Fissette Jr. of North Providence, RI raised all-in with Kc8s and was called by Sherwin with AsKh. The flop (KdJh6h) left Sherwin in charge and Roger with little hope. The 9dJs completed the board, and relegated Roger to 10th, earning $2,183 for his efforts.
Another ten minutes would pass before Jeanelle Roberts would move all-in over the top of Sherwin’s raise to 200k. Sherwin called with pocket J’s to AsKh for Jeanelle. The board ran out 7h2c2h10h4s, and Jeanelle would finish in 9th place, taking $3,235 back home to Haverstraw, NY.
A half hour later, Joseph Smith moved all-in with 480k after Diane Ellis had raised to 200k...Diane called. Joe turned over Ac10c to Diane’s AdQd, and with no help from the board (8h6s2sQs8s), Joe, a resident of West Hartford, CT earned $3,917 for 8th.
Vincent Rosarbo short called Sherwin’s raise to 200k with his last 195k. Greg Roberts also called. Greg and Sherwin checked it down as the board played out As8d5cKh7d. Vincent turned over Qs8s to Greg’s Ac4c (Sherwin mucked) leaving Vincent with a hard fought 7th place finish and a $4,903 payday to take back home to Branford, CT.
An hour and a half would pass before the next eliminating hand had David Fallon of Medford, MA raising to 200k before the flop. He was called by Greg. Following the AhJc8d flop, Greg bet out 240k and was called all-in by David. David was feeling comfortable with a set of Aces to Greg’s Kc10c gut shot straight draw, but the Qd on the turn and the 10h on the river sealed David’s 6th place finish for $6,030.
The final eliminating hand had Diane Ellis of Cumberland, RI moved all-in with Ah6h and was called by Greg who showed AsKs. Greg’s kicker prevailed after the AcJc9c7h2c board left Diane $6,547 for her 5th place finish.
Down to four players and each with comparable chip stacks, they agreed to a four way chop with one final hand to determine who would take the Jacket and Trophy. Sherwin Agard captured the Championship Trophy while Marc Vincent took the Commemorative Leather Jacket to go along with their $18,475 top prizes.
Keith Kessmann and Gregory Roberts also claimed top prizes of $18,475. Reported by Rhue R Reis for Foxwoods Resort Casino
