Event 15 at the World Series of Poker saw the start of the Ladies World Championship event with 1,190 players starting out. The first place prize on offer to the winner was $244,702, as the total prize pool rose to $1,082,000. Most of the well known Lady poker pro’s was in attendance along with a few celebrities in the field.

The bubble burst on the first day with the elimination’s coming thick and fast, the last 99 players cashed in and by the end of the first day, the field had shrunk to just 63 players left, to battle out the race for the final table. Svetlana Gromenkova took the chip lead half way through day two and stayed there right until the final table positions were decided. The rest of the table chip rankings at the end of day two was as follows:

Final Table Chip Rankings

  • 1st Svetlana Gromenkova $553,000
  • 2nd Christine Priday $448,000
  • 3rd Patty Till $312,000
  • 4th Debbie Mitchell $224,000
  • 5th Sue Porter $211,000
  • 6th Vesenia Garcia $210,000
  • 7th Anh Le $191,000
  • 8th Marla Crumpler $163,000
  • 9th Roslyn Quarto $73,000

After just two orbits on this final table saw the two short stacks double up and then came the first elimination. Sue Porter moved All In after the Flop came down :ah :ks :5h holding :ac :7c and found herself almost drawing dead after Roslyn Quarto tabled :ad :kc The :7s on the Turn gave Porter a chance with just one out left, but no miracle came as the :8h completed the board.

Just eight hands after Porter’s exit Yesenia Garcia moved All In with :ac :10c after the Flop came down :jc :9s :8c Marla Crumpler called with :ad :jd having top pair but Crumpler had a lot of outs looking for a flush or straight draw. None of her out’s hit, as the final two cards down was the :2d and :10s Crumpler won $28,155 for finishing in 8th place.

Play slowed down and it wasn’t until the 84th hand of play before the next player headed for the rail. Roslyn Garcia did well to come back from the short stack position but lost out with :as :kc against Christine Priday with pocket Queens. This win moved Priday into the chip lead just before the break.

When the players returned from the break Svetlana Gromenkova moved back in the lead, eliminating Debbie Mitchell out in 6th place. Gromenkova flopped trip Jacks leaving Mitchells :as :9s drawing dead after the Turn. Fifth place was decided almost immediately after as Crumpler’s pocket Kings was cracked by Anh Le pairing an Ace on the Flop.

Priday’s day ended after loosing the majority of her chips to Gromenkova running into pocket Aces. Anh Le finished her off on the next hand as her :as :7d was dominated against :ad :jc Priday picked up $73,637 for her hard work.

Patty Till was on the short stack through out three handed play and ended up moving All In with :ks:6h and was called by Gromenkova with pocket Nines. A flopped set for Gromenkova left Till needing help which never came.

Gromenkova lead Le in the chip rankings at the start of heads up, with a $1.4 million chip stack against Le on $890,000. Le started off taking the chip lead doubling up with :ad :5d up against :ah :kc when hitting a Five on the Flop. Gromenkova came back at Le taking the chip lead back before finishing her off with pocket Kings. A deserved win for Gromenkova leading the field from the start taking down the $244,702 first place prize and the WSOP bracelet.
