WSOP 2015: Carol Fuchs Joins Small Elite Of Women Bracelet Winners

WSOP 2015: Carol Fuchs Joins Small Elite Of Women Bracelet Winners A few dozen women have won gold bracelets at the WSOP on account of the Ladies Only event which is held every year. Open events, on the other hand, are a different matter with just a handful of women having accomplished the feat since Starla Brodie did so in 1979. However, that number has now risen after US player Carol Fuchs took down Event #52: $1,500 Dealers Choice Six Handed on Saturday night, in so doing joining a small elite of lady champions which includes Vanessa Selbst, Barbara Enright, Nani Dollison, and Jennifer Harman. Following her remarkable victory, the film screenplay writer and amateur poker player commented:
“I’m so overwhelmed. I’m not an idiot, I know what I’m doing and I know the games, but I don’t have anywhere near the experience of a lot of these guys. I’m as blown away by this as everybody else is.”
The $1,500 Dealers Choice Six Handed event attracted a field of 357 players to create a prize pool worth $481,950, with some of the most talented pros in the game entering the competition. Amongst the notable players subsequently receiving a cash payout was Roland Israelashivili in 30th ($3,445), Jeff Lisandro in 29th ($3,445), Tom Schneider in 21st ($4,188), Kevin MacPhee in 18th ($5,258), and Scott Clements in 8th ($12,000).
The final table, too, featured a number of formidable pros in the guise of Yuval Bronshtein (5th), Chris Klodnicki (4th), and Robert Mizrachi (3rd), but eventually Carol Fuchs managed to progress all the way through to heads-up play against Ilya Krupin, whom she ultimately overcame to claim the prestigious bracelet. Commenting on her approach to the final table, Carol Fuchs explained:
“I don’t make my living this way, so it’s just fun for me. If I bust out, it’s not my payday, anything is a bonus. These guys, they have a lot more pressure on them. They have different pressures which I just don’t have.”
Final Table Results:
1 Carol Fuchs $127,735
2 Ilya Krupin $78,933
3 Robert Mizrachi $51,236
4 Chris Klodnicki $34,252
5 Yuval Bronshtein $23,528
