Is it really almost five years since Annette Obrestad won the maiden WSOPE Main Event? Liv Boeree, Victoria Coren and Vanessa Selbst have been doing it for the sisters since then but it looks like there could be a new female prodigy to watch out for after 18-year-old Veronika Pavklikova won the France Poker Series Snowfest over the weekend.

The youngster from the Czech Republic outlasted a 296-runner field and a final table that included Guillaume Darcourt in Evian to pocket a first prize of €70,000.

The final table positions and payouts were as follows:

1- Veronika Pavlikova €70,000
