Jeremy Meacham Wins WSOP Circuit Foxwoods
Meremy Meacham of Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts scored the biggest cash of his career at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut. Meachem won the World Series of Poker Circuit Main Event at Foxwoods for $156,736, defeating a field of 486 entries.
Meacham, 30, is having a great year so far. He and his brother Henry Meacham each scored six-figure wins at recent Seminole Hard Rock Poker events. This was his third time entering the WSOP Circuit event at Foxwoods. The first time, in 2015 Mecham finished 6th, the following year he finished 3rd, and this year he finally took the title.
Meacham called his sequential winning “a nice little progression.” Along with his first place prize money, Meacham won a free seat at this season’s WSOP Global Casino Championship.
This win, combined with other recent wins at the WPT DeepStacks Jacksonville, the Wynn Summer Classic, and the Borgata Fall Poker Open, brings Meacham’s total live poker earnings to $743,316. He is a player to watch considering all of his winnings were earned in just the last four years.
Meacham’s third time at the tournament had the charm. He slipped into his position as chip leader before the end of Day 1A, only losing it briefly to Day 1B chip leader Galen Hall.
Player Caleb Clarke was named Casino Champion at the WSOP Circuit Foxwoods Stop, also earning a seat in this season’s Global Casino Championship. Clarke cashed in five tournaments during the stop, making it to four final tables and collecting a gold ring in the High Roller event.
