Local standout writes his own redemption story on home turf
The last time Dustin Fox was heads-up at Harveys Lake Tahoe, Chris Ferguson beat him to win his own third WSOP Circuit ring. A lot has changed in the last decade, though.
On Monday, Fox finally got the redemption that was 10 years in the making. He took down the $365 six-max event, collecting $12,516 and the previously elusive gold ring.
Fox, 35, is a golf pro and an avid poker player from Lake Tahoe. He’s just one little cash away from a half-million dollars in live tournament earnings, with the vast majority of that coming in the Reno/Tahoe area.
