Trymean77 tried and won November 3 Women's Sunday
Today was a big one for the Women's Sunday, as the prize pool jumped well over $13K with a larger field than usual. It was a nice way to welcome in the month of November!
Don't forget that there are many ways to win your seat to the Women's Sunday each week for a fraction of the $55 buy-in. Check out the satellite listings here.
The PS Women Live satellite for the PCA Women's Event prize package was also a big one this week with 20 competitors in the $215 qualifier. Players competed all week in the lower buy-in satellites and came to the Weekly Final with the hopes of winning a $3,300 package for the PCA. And realpatient of Canada did just that, securing her spot in the Bahamas in January of 2014. There are still two months of packages to win, so check out the details here.
As for today's Women's Sunday, the final numbers were:
Total players: 274
Prize pool: $13,700.00
Paid finishers: 45
Of the two members of Team PokerStars in action, each with a $50 bounty on her head, Team Online's Adrienne "talonchick" Rowsome was the first to go in 177th place. And Friend of PokerStars Charlotte "Sjlot" Van Brabander stayed in action well into the money.
Last week's third place finisher jlamb1234 exited on the money bubble this week in 46th place, and payments of $82.20 then began for the rest of the players. Only two tables remained at the 3.5-hour mark, and play moved rather quickly.
One of the casualties of that time of the tournament was Sjlot. She moved her 25K chips all-in with A♣Q♥, but tktxrf called with 5♥5♦, which only improved to a straight on the A♦9♣8♠7♦6♥ board. Sjlot was gone in 15th place with $171.25.
The 11th place elimination of Isidora CdLL put hand-for-hand play into motion, which took quite some time. Finally, toward the end of Level 19, sistar8 pushed all-in for less than 17K with A♦T♣. Vanilhaice and tktxrf both called and check down the board of 5♠2♥A♥Q♣K♦. Tktxrf bet with K♥Q♥ and two pair, to which vanilhaice folded. And sistar8 was out in tenth place with $205.50.
Crazyrrednek and vanilhaice battle for chip lead
The setup for the final table was as follows:
Seat 1: Faatje38 (23,126 in chips)
Seat 2: Trymean77 (94,076 in chips)
Seat 3: watiswijs (29,058 in chips)
Seat 4: crazyrrednek (151,878 in chips)
Seat 5: mrs.cesspool (63,660 in chips)
Seat 6: tktxrf (137,269 in chips)
Seat 7: vanilhaice (151,173 in chips)
Seat 8: MLpokerface (72,678 in chips)
Seat 9: nataale76 (99,082 in chips)
On the third hand, the original short stack, Faatje38, moved all-in with A♥Q♠ from the button, and original raiser mrs.cesspool called with A♣K♠. That hand only improved on the 5♠T♥2♦K♣7♦ board to a pair of kings, and Faatje38 was gone in ninth place with $239.75.
Tktxrf then scored a big double through crazyrrednek to claim the chip lead.
MLpokerface made her move with 7♣7♦ from the big blind, and original raiser Trymean77 called with A♥K♦. The board delivered A♣4♠T♥8♣5♥ for the pair of aces that knocked MLpokerface out in eighth place, which was worth $328.80.
Two hands later, a battle of the blinds ensued when Trymean77 raised from the small blind and watiswijs moved all-in from the big blind. Trymean77 called for 1,458 more chips with K♥9♦, which dominated the K♣5♦ of watiswijs. The board revealed Q♠9♣A♣3♠Q♦, and watiswijs departed in seventh place with $465.80.
Shortly after, crazyrrednek got into a preflop raising war with tktxrf, ultimately moving all-in with 9♠9♦. But tktxrf showed A♦A♠, which only improved to a set on the T♥5♦2♣K♠A♣ board. Crazyrrednek was gone in sixth place for $602.80.
Mrs.cesspool doubled through vanilhaice just before the 4.5-hour break, and several more sizeable pots put mrs.cesspool atop the leaderboard before long.
Vanilhaice never really recovered, though. She finally moved her stack all-in with T♣T♠ and ran into the A♥A♦ of tktxrf. Nothing about the 9♣5♥Q♥4♠5♦ board changed the outcome, and vanilhaice left in fifth place with $780.90.
And mrs.cesspool was at it again, raising preflop with J♥J♠. Nataale76 reraised all-in with A♦K♥, and mrs.cesspool called, only to improve to a set on the Q♣9♥2♠J♣5♦ board. Nataale76 had no choice but to accept fourth place and leave with $1,130.25.
Three-handed play started with mrs.cesspool in the lead, but Trymean77 was on a roll and had the momentum. With this hand, she took over the top spot:
After nearly 30 minutes of action amongst the three, all three players got involved to see a raised flop of Q♣8♦6♦. Tktxrf bet, and Trymean77 check-raised, prompting mrs.cesspool to fold. Tktxrf called, and the J♦ on the turn brought an all-in bet from tktxrf for nearly 110K chips. Trymean77 check-called with A♦5♦ for the turned diamond flush, and tktxrf showed only two pair with J♥8♣. The 4♥ on the river ended the event for tktxrf in third place, which garnered a payout of $1,507.00.
Trymean77 tries to maintain lead
The heads-up battle began with these chip counts:
Seat 2: Trymean77 (567,300 in chips)
Seat 5: mrs.cesspool (254,700 in chips)
The first 20 minutes saw mrs.cesspool gain a little ground, but she remained under 300K. Another 10 minutes, however, gave mrs.cesspool this opportunity for a double-up into the lead:
Trymean77 doubled back a bit later, but mrs.cesspool did the same. But trymean77 maintained her new lead going into the final hand. The two saw a raised flop of 9♥7♥9♣, and a bet from mrs.cesspool was met with a call from Trymean77. The 8♣ on the turn brought another bet from mrs.cesspool but a raise from Trymean77. Mrs.cesspool pushed it up again, and Trymean77 came over the top all-in. Mrs.cesspool called for her tournament life with Q♠9♠ for trip nines, but Trymean77 showed 9♦7♠ for the full house. The 3♦ on the river changed nothing and left mrs.cesspool out in second place with $1,986.50.
Trymean77 won the Women's Sunday and $2,650.95. Congratulations!
