Andy takes it! Yep - nearly 12 hours after he sat down, he would finally stand up from the table with all the chips and money in hand as the newest WPT champion. Frankenberger earned $750,000 in prize money, plus a $25,000 seat into the WPT Championship by winning this event. It was only Frankenberger's second World Poker Tour event. After his victory he acknowledged he'll be playing in a lot more.
Grab your chips and shake those hips because in an official ceremony due to take place on September 3rd at Las Vegas’ Golden Nugget Casino, Jennifer Harman, Kathy Liebert and Billie Brown will find themselves inducted into the ‘Women in Poker Hall of Fame.’ Women are really starting to dominate poker, and it's nice to see them getting recognized before the younger crop of players pass them by - or will they?
I love me some Mike Matusow, and it's nice to see him winning lots of tournaments. Mike “The Mouth” Matusow has just collected $103,000, after taking down the main event of the Florida State Poker Championship at the Isle Casino & Racing in Pompano Beach. Matusow was in Florida to promote and run a seminar for poker online training site ‘Deepstack’ and while there decided to take time out to enter the tournament.
