PokerNews was recently in Niagara Falls to cover the 2013 Seneca Niagara Fall Poker Classic. The $1,500 Main Event was won by Buffalo native Andy Spears, who bested a field of 149 players to claim the $52,410 top prize. Spears confirmed to PokerNews on Thursday that he will be making the short trip to Niagara Falls for next month's series.

The Seneca Niagara Casino is home to the largest hotel in Western New York and over 600 luxurious rooms. The poker room can be found on the first floor of the casino next to the bus lobby.
