Posted on 09 June 2011 by "T".

Last week, Maria Ho wrote history when she finished second in the 2011 WSOP $5k NLH event for $540,000. Even thought she didn't make it all the day to the title, the prize money was enough for her to become the women with the single largest cash at a Stateside WSOP event. In total, she has now cashed 9 times at the WSOP with her previous biggest score in 2007 Main Event where she finished 38th for $237,865.

About Maria Ho
Maria Ho is a 28-year-old poker pro, who was born in Taiwan and moved to U.S. at the age of 4. Her interest for poker started in college. By the time Maria graduated from UCSD in 2005, she had gone from playing low limit to high stakes cash games and decided to play poker for living. However, it's not from cash games that she has created her fortune.

In total, Maria has earned $1,134,400 from live tournaments and she is ranked as one of Poker's Top 10 Female Tournament Money Earners of all time (under the age of 30). Maria Ho is not only known for her fantastic poker results. In 2009, she was seen on the CBS award winning television show The Amazing Race - a reality television game show with millions of viewers every week.

this wsop cash is a pretty big win for maria considering her previous winnings. in the wsop 5k nlh event her opponent had a massive chip lead at HU so she was bound to get second, maybe we'll hear more about her in future.
