The fourth incarnation of PartyPoker's Women's World Open came to a conclusion late last week with Pippa Flanders, accompanied by ever present donkey mascot Eemore, taking the title.
The Lancastrian is no stranger to big tournament success having previously taken down the 2006 World Open for a $200,000 score. This time she navigated her way through a 24-runner field that included the likes of Annette Obrestad, Kara Scott and Kim Wooka to take the first prize of $30,000. The final hand saw Flanders raise with her AQ only to see Helen Firth come over the top with an all in raise. Flanders called and was delighted to see Firth reveal KQ. There was to be no miracle for Firth who took home $15,000.“It’s absolutely brilliant to have won - this really is so special to me. I would hate to lose Eemore – he brings me such good luck!” said the delighted victor. Eddie Hearn, Managing Director of Matchroom Sport added, “Pippa Flanders has some serious form in our tournaments and we’d like to congratulate her on her win. The Women’s World Open is always a favourite with broadcasters and this tournament will make great tv with the lively table talk and fantastic action.” The action will be televised in the UK on Five later this year.The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1st) PIPPA FLANDERS (UK) $30,0002nd) HELEN FIRTH (UK) $15,0003rd) CAROLINE COVE (UK) $10,0004th) ELIZA BURNETT (UK) $8,0005th) CLAIRE RENAUT (FRA) $6,0006th) TATJANA PASALIC (CRO) $3,000
