Dustin Fox Locks Up Back-to-Back Win in WSOP Circuit Harveys Lake Tahoe Six-Max

Cheered by his mom, Fox scoops back-to-back Six-Max title at Harveys Lake Tahoe Casino
Local player Dustin Fox defended his WSOP Circuit Harveys Lake Tahoe No-Limit Hold’em Six-Max title last night to collect his second gold ring from the series and $18,878. Fox took down the exact same event at the exact same host casino this time last year.
The player said in his post-victory interview that last year he received a text message from his mother saying “You got it.” and he won the event. The exact same thing happened this year. He got the same message and he won the same event shortly after.
The six-max tournament drew a total of 208 entries this year, a significant improvement from last year’s field of 187 contenders. The prize pool of $68,640 was distributed among the top 21 finishers. Min-cashes were worth $629.
Fox did not enjoy a good start to the $400 buy-in tournament, but he remained calm and consistent to eventually lock up the title. The player had to fire six bullets into the event. He told WSOP Circuit staff that despite getting eliminated five times throughout the tournament, he did not feel discouraged and kept playing for the title. He further pointed out that he felt good all the time. His positivism certainly helped him capture the title and the gold ring.
Fox’s Final Table Run
Fox was holding the largest chip stack when the unofficial final table of seven was reached. The player had 723,000 in chips at that point in play. He was followed by Dave Potter with 676,000 and James Duke with 609,000.
While the initial stages of the tournament were a bit challenging for the eventual champion, he had a terrific final table run. The player bulldozed his way to the end of the tournament, applying aggression where it was needed and winning hand after hand until he was the last man standing.
Fox faced James Duke for a heads-up finale. His approach to the game and his consistency won him his second gold ring. Duke, walking out as the runner-up finisher, collected $11,661 in consolation prize money.
Fox’s victory from last night secured him with his second cash from the series. Last week, the player finished 46th in the $400 buy-in multiflight re-entry tournament for $742. And as mentioned earlier, Fox claimed his second gold ring from the WSOP Circuit. This time last year, the player emerged victorious in the same six-handed tournament at the same host casino for his debut piece from the popular poker series.
Fox told WSOP Circuit staff that we will not see him at the tables of Harveys Lake Tahoe over the next few days as he will be attending a golf tournament. However, the player plans to return to take part in the Main Event, which is set to kick off November 2 and to run through November 5. Fox said that he is determined to win that one, too.
