Nadya Magnus Wins WSOPC Potawatomi for $71,398

Its been a good month for women poker players, with Ema Zajmovic winning the WPT Playground main event for $200,769, Loni Harwood taking down the WSOPC West Palm Beach for $61,156, and now Nadya Magnus completing a hattrick of triumphs with her victory at the WSOPC Potawatomi for $71,398.
Nadya Magnus cashed in at her first live event back in 2008, and in 2010 appeared in Season 1 of the high-stakes televised cash game show called Big Game. She subsequently went on to become one of only a handful of loose cannons to win a significant amount of cash to the tune of $63,600. Following Magnus’ latest triumph in Milwaukee she now boasts $253,728 in poker tournament related winnings.
The WSOPC $2,200 High Roller Re-Entry event attracted 119 entries to create a prize pool worth $238,000, with just 12 cash places available. Notable pros Ryan Van Sanford (12th) and Johanssy Joseph (11th) then managed to see a return on their buy-ins before being sent to the rail just short of the official final table of eight.
At this stage, Eric Rivkin was the table leader while Nadya Magnus was one of the short stacks, along with Jim Juvancic and Steve Lauson who subsequently exited in 8th and 7th places respectively. Magnus also managed to stay in contention while Rivkin ousted Kenny Nguyen from the competition in 6th, after which she picked up A-K and eliminated Craig Trost (A-5) in 5th.
Eric Rivkin (K-6) continued his final table assault by doing likewise to Matt Shepsky (K-8) in 4th, before being dealt A-J and knocking out Niel Mittelman (5-5) in 3rd to usher in heads-up play with Nadya Magnus for the title.
Despite Rivkin holding a chip advantage, Magnus soon forged ahead to a 6-1 lead when the deciding hand was played with Rivkin all-in holding Q-J to the A-3 of Magnus. The 10-7-4-K-6 board sealed the deal, and so Rivkin took home $44,130 for his runner-up finish, while Nadya Magnus collected the title, and the biggest score of her professional career.
Final Table Results:
1: Nadya Magnus $71,398
2: Eric Rivkin $44,130
3: Niel Mittelman $31,421
4: Matt Shepsky $22,824
5: Craig Trost $16,908
6: Kenny Nguyen $12,764
7: Steve Lauson $9,818
8: Jim Juvancic $7,690
