The 2013 edition of the WSOP in Las Vegas saw its first female open event winner in Dana Castaneda on Tuesday evening after the American took down the $1,000 buy-in no-limit hold‘em Event #54.
Not since Vanessa Selbst claimed silverware back in 2007 has a female player scooped gold in a non-female specific event but Castaneda changed all that after defeating Canadian player Jason Bigelow and taking home $454,207 in cash.After cashing in the Ladies No-Limit Hold‘Em Championship earlier in the WSOP, Castaneda decided to take another shot at glory by anteing up in Event #54. Having made her way through the masses, she returned with 13 other grinders and managed to make her way into the final table after only a few hands.Castaneda soon emerged as the dominant force and soon eliminated former chip leader Barry Hutter before parlaying this good fortune into taking a run at Bigelow heads-up.In a final flourish of activity, a missed flush draw for Bigelow allowed Castaneda’s pair of fives to scoop the final pot and etch her name into the WSOP’s history books.Final results from WSOP Event #54 ($1,000 buy-in no-limit hold‘em):1 Dana Castaneda $454,2072 Jason Bigelow $281,9913 Matthias Bednarek $198,8834 Michael Zucchet $143,6425 Philippe Clerc $105,0076 Barry Hutter $77,6857 Jacob Bazeley $58,1478 Joseph Wertz $44,0329 Kenneth Gregersen $33,731
