Cash Game Specialist Hamilton Wins WSOP Ladies’ Event

Thursday, 11 June 2009

When your rail at the final table includes ElkY and Eric Liu, you have to be feeling pretty confident about your chances. Lisa Hamilton, a Hawaiian cash game player, had just that and stormed the final table of the $1,000 Ladies’ Event to win her first WSOP bracelet.

After a limped pot, Hamilton and runner-up Lori Bender got the cash in on a Jc3s8c4s board. Hamilton held Qs8s for middle pair and a flush draw while Bender was bent out of shape holding 89o. A miracle river failed to materialise as the Ah secured the bracelet for the 37-year-old Hawaii resident.

Bender received $125k for her efforts but Hamilton got $195,390 and the honour of a WSOP bracelet. The final table in this event was amazingly fast, with only around four hours of play clocked before the final pot was shipped.
