As for today, the final numbers were:
Total players: 232
Prize pool: $11,600.00
Paid finishers: 36
Just past the 4.5-hour mark of the event, only two tables remained. Payouts had already begun, and the final table was in sight. Play moved rather quickly then. On the bubble, PEP12413 had only 1,238 chips remaining and gets that in with A♥2♣. Daiane_br called from the small blind, and raraka checked the big blind. They checked down the board of K♣Q♦5♦J♣7♥, and daiane_br showed Q♠8♣ for the win. Raraka mucked, and PEP12413 exited in tenth place with $185.60.
Initial chip lead for N444TAL
The final table started with these players and their chip counts:
Seat 1: gosia_ostra (109,853 in chips)
Seat 2: acumen plus (21,974 in chips)
Seat 3: N444TAL (246,784 in chips)
Seat 4: raraka (156,514 in chips)
Seat 5: daiane_br (201,563 in chips)
Seat 6: PCM2013 (35,045 in chips)
Seat 7: rosemarie209 (60,986 in chips)
Seat 8: SorryGirls=* (169,827 in chips)
Seat 9: mrs.cesspool (157,454 in chips)
It took only a few hands for acumen plus to get involved. She pushed her short stack all-in with J♠8♣, but raraka had A♦A♠. The board of 3♥2♥2♠Q♠J♣ only served to eliminate acumen plus in ninth place with $220.40.
Three hands later, mrs.cesspool started a hand with an UTG raise, and PCM2013 called, as did rosemarie209. The flop of 7♠Q♥4♣ prompted a bet from mrs.cesspool, and PCM2013 raised all-in for 17,145 more. Rosemarie209 check-folded, and mrs.cesspool called with A♦Q♦. PCM2013 was in trouble with K♦Q♣ and lost when the board finished with 8♦ and 4♥. PCM2013 exited in eighth place with $290.00.
Gosia_ostra made her move from the big blind with more than 91K and 10♣10♥. Original raiser daiane_br called with A♣J♦ and immediately hit the flop when it came J♥9♣8♦. The 5♣ and 8♥ finished the hand, leaving gosia_ostra out in seventh place with $406.00.
Daiane_br got involved with several players in a big hand, starting it with an UTG raise. N444TAL and raraka called from the blinds to see the Q♥Q♠8♣ flop. All three players checked, but the 9♣ prompted raraka to bet. Daiane_br called, but N444TAL folded out of the way. After the 5♦ showed up on the river, raraka bet again, but this time, daiane_br raised all-in. Raraka called with J♦10♠ for the straight, which beat the Q♣10♦ and trip queens of daiane_br. Sixth place was worth $522.00.
Rosemarie209 doubled through N444TAL and then through mrs.cesspool to get off the short stack.
N444TAL then decided to move all-in with A♠Q♦, and original raiser mrs.cesspool called with A♣10♠. The flop of 2♦3♥A♦ looked good for a N444TAL double-up, but the 10♦ dropped on the turn to give mrs.cesspool two pair. The J♠ on the river eliminated N444TAL in fifth place for $672.80.
SorryGirls=* was the next player to risk her stack and did it with 8♦8♣. Original UTG raiser mrs.cesspool called with A♥Q♠ and hit the board twice when it cema 2♣A♠J♣6♦A♦. The trip aces eliminated SorryGirls=* in fourth place with $986.00.
Rosemarie209 played tough but remained the shortest of the three stacks. She finally pushed all-in with 7♦7♠, but mrs.cesspool called with 9♠9♣. The board brought nothing of significance with 5♦K♥J♥4♣4♦, and rosemarie209 was out in third place with $1,310.80.
Mrs.cesspool seeks long-awaited victory
The final two players started heads-up action with these stacks:
Seat 4: raraka (337,044 in chips)
Seat 9: mrs.cesspool (822,956 in chips)
It only took five hands for raraka to make a move, and it happened with Q♠J♦. Mrs.cesspool called quickly with K♠K♦, which held up and turned into two pair on the 9♥Q♣4♠9♣3♣ board, as shown here:
Raraka was eliminated in second place with $1,740.00.
Mrs.cesspool finally secured a Women’s Sunday title after numerous second place finishes and final tables. She took home $2,372.20 for the win. Congrats!
