Dessau’s Sandra Naujoks saw off a field of 667-runners to claim the first prize of 917,000 euro in the latest leg of the European Poker Tour.
It looked like defending champion Mike ‘Timex’ McDonald was in line for an unlikely repeat until his KJ ran into the eventual winner’s pocket 10s and he busted out in fifth place.The final hand was eerily reminiscent of Chris Ferguson’s 2000 WSOP Main Event victory over TJ Cloutier. All the money went in with Naujoks holding A9 and her opponent, 26-year old economics student Holger Kanisch holding AQ. The flop came A72 but a 9 on the turn and blank on the river gave Naujoks the victory.The tour heads to San Remo next month.The final result was as follows:1. Sandra Naujoks - €917,0002. Holger Kanisch - €533,0003. Marc Gork - €307,0004. Johan Storakers - €237,0005. Mike McDonald - €197,0006. Luca Pagano - €153,0007. William Thorson - €116,5008. Cengizcan Ulusu - €83,500Vicky Coren now no longer holds the title of “only female EPT winner” as German Sandra Naujoks took down a strong field, including a final table featuring Mike “Timex” McDonald, to win €917,000.Bluff Europe first noticed Ms. Naujoks when for some strange reason our (male) reporting team kept getting strangely distracted by her table at the WSOPE 2008. This was of course nothing to do with the low-cut top and tight jeans she was wearing and everything to do with her poker skills. Naujoks initially studied German and history to become a high school teacher before pursuing careers as a graphic designer and model. She said after her victory: “It was sick. I don't really know what I feel… I’m exhausted.”
