Looking at the buy-in and the first prize, it makes me think that this event must have had a small field when compared to others. She received almost as much as the first time she won a gold bracelet back in 2008, and that has been a $1,500 buy-in tourney. Now in a $2,500 buy-in event, she only got more $17k… It’s always good to win, but when we invest more, we are also expecting to win more, if we happen to win.

But when there are less players you have a bigger chance of winning.
Getting through a field of 200 is easier then 2000 obviously.

It's still almost 1000x what was at stake. But yeah I agree in general, just when you come 1st 2nd or 3rd in small tourneys, that's the exception. But obviously that's harder to do and involves luck being on your side.

lol - who cares.

she has skills although from what i've seen she gets crazy aggressive and steams a bit, tough to play against i'll bet.

some acheivement for a woman in a male dominated field.

Probably my favorite female poker player. Glad to see her take it. Always liked watching her play on the "High Stakes" series and miss the show to be honest. We can all expect to see her excel to higher levels is my belief and could become one of the all time money makers in poker before she's through.

I don’t have a favourite poker girl pro but she is undoubtly the most mediatic female poker player, even more than Vanessa Rousso – and that one, I believe every guys around here will agree that has a lot of nice attributes.
