Darcy Dixon Wins Poker Championship In Australia

Darcy Dixon Wins Poker Championship In AustraliaSearch for the name Darcy Dixon online and you will likely come upon details of an attractive US female wrestler who describes herself on twitter as a “Resistance Pro Women’s Champ~fitness enthusiast.” (see photo).
However, Darcy Dixon may soon face some fresh competition on the search engines after her namesake, an Australian poker pro, just took down the 2013 Western Classic Poker Championship in Perth, Australia.
On his way to victory, and his biggest live score to date, Darcy Dixon succeeded in besting a field of 117 players over four days to lift the title, and collect the AU$71,000 first place prize.
The $2,200 buy-in event attracted a good-sized field to create a prize pool worth $234,000. By the time the two starting days were completed 68 players remained, which was further whittled down to just 11 competitors by the end of Day 2.
This is how the final 11 lined-up ahead of the last day’s action getting under way.
Yann Yin – 418,000
Liam Taylor – 413,000
Darcy Dixon – 394,000
Warren Stewart – 206,000
Steve Miller – 183,000
Andrew Sawyer – 174,000
Arthur Richards – 164,000
Guy Perkins – 156,000
Martyn Ward – 99,000
Dale Marsland – 76,000
Gary Lightfoot – 58,000
Through a combination of patience and waiting for the most opportune moments to strike, Darcy Dixon was then able to overcome his remaining opponents to maintain a healthy chip stack all the way until dispatching his final competitor to claim the
Champions bracelet worth $12,000, as well as the Main Event trophy.
