Will “The Thrill” Failla of Commack, N.Y., captured the World Poker Finals Main Event at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn., and earned $128,306 and a crystal trophy.

The $2,700 no-limit hold’em main event is the signature event at Foxwoods, and was a staple of the World Poker Tour for years. Its 302 entrants generated a $732,350 prize pool. Fifty-six returned at noon on Sunday for Day 3 action. Nine hours of final-table action culminated with the final three reaching an agreement that gave Chris Orme of Ashland, Mass., $100K for third, Tom Thomas of Albertson, N.Y., $120K for second and Failla notched the title and a special watch. The winners of the undercard events are below, including two NLHE titles won by Dena Pearlman of Providence.
