WORLD SERIES OF POKER LADIES CHAMPIONSHIP COMPLETES
2014-07-02

The $10,000 buy-in Ladies NLHE Championship competition - number 53 on the World Series of Poker schedule - came to a conclusion over the weekend with a heads up between two amateur players, businesswoman Haixa Zhang and digital marketing specialist Mikiyo Aoki.

It was the culmination of a three day affair in which 793 entrants competed for the lion's share of a $713,700 prize pool, with the heads up decided quickly after a 30-hand tussle at the three-handed stage saw third placed Meikat Siu eliminated for $61,114.

Mikiyo Aoki, who had held the chip lead at the start of the final table, was pitted against Haixa Zhang in the final hands of the event, with Zhang holding a slight advantage that she managed to build on with some good cards, enabling her to bust Aoki in a little over an hour and claim the main prize of $153,470 and her first WSOP bracelet.

Aoki took home $94,800, whilst the remaining players enjoyed pay-days of:

Meikat Siu $61,114
Elizabeth Montizanti $44,770
Patti Landis $33,279
Persia Bonella $25,072
Kendra Wray $19,120
Stacey Sullivan $14,752
Patricia Cahill $11,504

The prize pool for the event is $37,333,338.




SULSKY COMEBACK ON HIGH STAKES ONLINE POKER TABLES
2013-01-12

It's been an incredible introduction to 2013 for poker pro Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom, who has earned $4.1 million in just over a week Apuestas Deportivas Apuestas NFL Futbol Americano Online Bingo Rooms Play Bingo online SITRAK C7H Costa Rica , crushing some of the best players around on the high stakes tables at Full Tilt Poker.
But at some point there had to be a dip, and that occurred Wednesday when Blom took a half-million dollar bankroll to the $400/$800 PLO virtual tables and lost a chunk of it to his main opponent, Ben 'Sauce1234' Sulsky in an epic 5.5 hour encounter.
It was sweet revenge for Sulsky, who had lost large amounts of money to Blom - most recently $743,000 - as he rode his monumental heater. Over the 5.5 hours of intense action, around 30 six-figure pots were developed, with the number of $200,000 pots going into double digits, according to High Stakes Data Base. The biggest pot of the day - $303,700 - went to Blom.
Sulsky recovered $392,800 from his Swedish opponent, whilst Blom was down overall on the day by $509,000 after losing some triple draw clashes as well.
From Sulskys perspective it was not money easily won; HSDB reports that at one point just before the sudden and brutal downswing in his fortunes, Blom was up around $350,000.
The fact that he had conserved the bulk of his overall winnings for another day suggests that Blom's 'boom or bust' playing philosophy has been wisely modified by bitter experience, although the young Swede remains an aggressive and dangerous player.
Sulsky will be relieved to have recovered some of the $1.1 million he has handed over to Blom this year.
The two players agreed to meet again on the tables without settling on a firm date and time, but an early return session is expected.
