2007 World Series: Katja Thater makes final table

It's been a good summer for Katja Thater. It's only been a few days since her sweetheart Jan Von Halle made the final table of the $1,000 no-limit hold'em event. Now, Katja is headed to her own final.

Just minutes ago, Katja and eight other ladies finished up for the day after making the final nine of the No-Limit Hold'em Ladies event. Katja has already had one final table finish on the European Poker Tour this year. Now, she's looking to win her first World Series bracelet.

Jan was on the rail as Katja finished up today and rushed into the tournament area to give Katja a big kiss. I can't say for sure, but Jan certainly looked like he was happier now than when he made a final table of his own.

You might also know that Jan runs the German blog for PokerStars, so you can be sure to find German language coverage on at the PokerStars German Blog tomorrow.

Congrats, Katja!
