The end of May is upon us, which means there was only this one chance remaining to win a Women's Sunday title this month. And only days remain in the Women's Poker League to cash in on the monthly prizes set aside for leaderboard winners. Congratulations to those who won big in May!
To everyone else, the good news is that a brand new month begins in a few days. Reset those goals for June, and be prepared to hit the ground running on Friday. Start with those Women's Poker League tournaments, which include quite a few freerolls, or play the satellites for the Women's Tuesday or the Women's Sunday. There are so many ways to get involved and build that bankroll! Check out the PokerStars Women site for more details and get in on the summertime poker action.
Meanwhile, let's take a look at the numbers for the last Women's Sunday in May:
Total players: 204
Prize pool: $10,200.00
Paid finishers: 36
There were two members of Team PokerStars in the field today, each carrying a $50 bounty. Team Online's Adrienne "talonchick" Rowsome was the first of the two to be eliminated, and it was Player 3 who took the bounty.
Team PokerStars Pro Celina Lin was the next one to go, and she departed in 85th place. Play moved toward the money, and that bubble burst when 83Nemo busted in 37th place, allowing domilid to be the first to cash out for $75.37 in 36th place.
By the 3.5-hour mark, there were only two tables remaining, but it took about 30 minutes to get to hand-for-hand play on the final table bubble. Then it happened quickly, when silvitaeard was all-in with A?5? against the A?T? of Mauresmo1. The board came 9?J?5?T?7?, and silvitaeard took home $160.80 for tenth place.
The final table then began with these chip counts:
Seat 1: e.v.a.81975 (18,218 in chips)
Seat 2: rüdiger1958 (70,782 in chips)
Seat 3: LaliTournier (81,586 in chips)
Seat 4: aldram (59,948 in chips)
Seat 5: Mauresmo1 (114,597 in chips)
Seat 6: sylwialz80 (58,792 in chips)
Seat 7: KongFuPandaG (34,846 in chips)
Seat 8: vai-q-bate88 (76,386 in chips)
Seat 9: Cosita Rica (87,845 in chips)
Some double-ups changed the chip counts quite a bit, as rudiger1958 doubled through Mauresmo1 and vai-q-bate88 did the same through rudiger1958. But it was KongFuPandaG who doubled through Cosita Rica once, and then again to jump into second place.
The initial heads-up chip counts were:
Seat 5: Mauresmo1 (132,054 in chips)
Seat 9: Cosita Rica (470,946 in chips)
Over the course of only a few hands, Mauresmo1 was chipped down to less than 80K chips, and that soon went all-in with A?J? preflop. Cosita Rica called with 9?7?, picked up a straight draw on the 6?K?T? flop, and hit the 7? for a pair on the turn. The 5? finished it with Mauresmo1 out in second place with $1,507.50.
Cosita Rica of Panama won the Women's Sunday and $2,055.33 in cash. Congratulations!
