Maria Ho defeated one of the best female players in the game Kristen Bicknell to win the $25K High Roller at the La Poker Classic.

It’s definitely a great moment for Maria because when she won the event she turned 36 years old, and the $276,690 prize is absolutely a perfect gift for the 2018 Women in Poker Hall of Fame member.

The 2019 L.A. Poker Classic $25,000 buy-in NLHE High Roller title is actually Maria Ho’s second-biggest live score in her career. Her biggest score to date is her runner-up finish in a $5,000 event for $540,020 at the 2011 WSOP. Currently her lifetime live tournament earnings are over $3 million.

The event had a player field of 28 entries that built a prize pool of $699,860. The top five players shall earn a payout, with the top three to be guaranteed six-figure prizes.

In the final hand, Maria Ho was up against Kristen Bicknell.

Maria Ho had Q-5

Bicknell had K-10

The board showed J-9-8-5-8, and Ho got the better hand with a 5 pair on the turn, thus winning the pot and the title.

World Poker Tour Executive Director Matt Savage greeted Maria Ho a happy birthday as he posted the results of the event via Twitter:


Maria Ho said to Matt after she won, “Matt, I’ve played so many tournaments on my birthday because Bay 101 used to always fall then, and I’ve never even sniffed a final table on my birthday. I guess on my birthday I’ll have to come back to pick up my payout!”

This is probably the tournament with the lowest number of participants that
i have ever seen. Only 28 of them Smile
Very good chances to hit the money with five places getting paid.
Not easy though since all players know what they are doing in a game like this Smile

Congratulations to the winner Maria Ho and having defeated one of the best players of the game Kristen Bicknell and take the victory of the $ 25K High Roller ... how I would like to one day be able to face one of these great players and play in a table to learn a little more from those who know Cool Cool Cool
 bowie198411/03/2019 19:19:28 GMT
Much more I see these names on the final table there are some interesting connections could be drawn between them - as I see it a 'ho' defeated 'winter' a 'loser' and a 'middle village' in the end. Now, this is some newsworthy battle if I ever see one...
 Nightkid19/03/2019 11:21:50 GMT
The truth who would not want to win an event like this and more if it occurs on your birthday better: D very good for Maria and I hope that more winners and take more money for the house and hopefully one day my turn comes Cool Cool Cool
