The 2013 Empire State Poker Classic attracted the largest field ever in its history.

With the added excitement of the first-ever “Poker Night in America” in full production, the $1,500 buy-in Main Event Championship Main Event attracted a record 426 entries — including many of the East Coast’s top players, as well as many celebrity attendees making their first trip ever to Upstate New York, the site of the poker action.

Three players who came via “Poker Night in America” made it all the way to the final table — including Darvin Moon (who finished 8th), Matthew Glantz (who finished 6th), and Will “the Thrill” Failla (who finished 5th).

Adam Foster, who enjoyed his biggest live cash ever, won the championship. He collected $154,958 for first place.
