The first weekend of October brings many things, like the autumn season and changing temperatures. It also brings a new month for the PokerStars Women's League and the player-favorite EPT stop in London.
Speaking of London, the PokerStars Women Live event was in full swing on October 2. Many of the regulars in the Women's Sunday tournament were competing live instead, hoping to take down a coveted EPT Ladies Event title and the prestige that goes with it. Needless to say, it was a busy Sunday, indeed.
As for the Women's Sunday, the stats for today's event were as follows:
Total players: 216
Prize pool: $10,800.00
Paid finishers: 36
Due to so much other activity in the poker world, the numbers were down a tad this week, though the guarantee was still blown far out of the water.
There were three members of the PokerStars crew in the field today, all of whom had $50 bounties on their heads for players who were able to eliminate them from the action. The first to go was Team PokerStars Online's Adrienne "talonchick" Rowsome, who exited just into the second hour of play.
A bit later, Team PokerStars Pro Sandra Naujoks was eliminated in 64th place, and the newest member of the team, Viviam Im, followed soon after in 55th place.
