WPT Foxwoods Poker Classic: Raj Patel, Last Year's Winner, Leading Day 1

WptlogoWhile this year's WPT Foxwoods Poker Classic has been swimming in some cold water (only 346 started, 219 remain), there are lots of big names among the early big stacks.

Leading them all after Day 1 is last year's winner Raj Patel, who may possibly be from India. And unlike a plate of Gosht Vindaloo, something about the Foxwoods Poker Classic must sit well with Raj, who hasn't done much of anything before or after last year's win. He's stacked at 194,000.

Other big named big stacks include Barry Greenstein (152,000), Erik Seidel (98,000), Ted Forrest (97,300), Men "The Master" Nguyen (86,000), Nam Le (85,000), Erick Lindgren (84,000), and "Glum Girl" Svetlana Gromenkova (68,700), who at least is looking a little less glum today.
