Mrs Shulman Wins WSOP $1k Seniors Championship For $603,713

Mrs Shulman Wins WSOP $1k Seniors Championship For $603,713Allyn Jaffrey Shulman has won the WSOP $1k Seniors Championship, after overcoming a huge field of 4,127 players over four days on her way to capturing a gold bracelet, and the $603,713 first place prize.
Following her remarkable victory, Mrs Shulman, who now has $839,163 in live cashes, commented: “I’m happy for myself but I am also happy for all women that I’ve won this, showing that any woman can win a poker tournament. I’d like to see more women out there playing and feeling comfortable going at it with the boys.”
By winning the over 50’s open event, Mrs Shulman became the first women to win a mixed-gender WSOP tournament since Vanessa Selbst took down the $1,500 PLO event in 2008. Her massive $603,713 payout was also the largest won by a female WSOP champion since Norway’s Annette Obrestad became the WSOPE Main Event champion in 2007. Furthermore, Allyn Jaffrey Shulman is the wife of  CardPlayer Magazine CEO Barry Shulman and the step-mother of Jeff, all of whom have now made final tables at this year’s WSOP. That fact wasn’t lost on WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart, who stated:
“With all due respect to the Brunsons. There is a new first family of poker in town, and they go by the name of Shulman.”
After reaching the final table, Mrs Shulman had to battle it out against eight other tough opponents, including Hoyt Corkins and then Dennis Phillips heads-up. Appropriately, Allyn Shulman eventually eliminated her third and final opponent holding pocket queens to Phillips’ pocket sixes. The final table began on Father’s day, and after her incredible win, the lawyer and Cardplayer columnist commented:
“My father is deceased, but yesterday (Father’s day) I just felt a warm presence come over me, the presence of my father and I wanted to make him proud. I wanted to play the best game I could possibly play.”
The final table payouts were as follows:
1: Allyn Jaffrey Shulman – $603,713
2: Dennis Phillips – $372,895
3: Bob Phelps – $270,727
4: Hoyt Corkins- $199,023
5: William Stabler – $147,605
6: Stuart Spear – $110,416
7: William Thompson – $83,332
8: Martin Fitzmaurice – $63,418
9: Harold Lilie – $48,669
