Guy Klass has won the 2017 Card Player Poker Tour Seneca Fall Poker Classic $1,000 no-limit hold’em main event at the Seneca Niagara Casino & Resort. The 46-year-old truck salesman from nearby Buffalo, New York topped a field of 271 entries to win the $58,608 top prize, becoming the latest CPPT champion and securing his spot on an upcoming issue of Card Player magazine.
