The first elimination at the final table was that of Cindy Kerslake at 9th place. Connie Bruce followed her in 8th place after losing to A-k of Chris Priday. Amanda Baker, Eleanor Gudger, Connie Bruce and Shana Matthews left the event a little later after about 25 hands leaving the event with three players.

Julie Monsacre was sort stacked and couldn’t make it to heads-up play. She put the rest of her stack with K-9 against Kristen Bicknell’s A-5. The board was A-2-10-J and Julie was waiting for a straight draw on the river. A three came and her dream ended in 3rd place and a $67,331 prize.

In heads-up play Bicknell with A-k suited raised to 40,000 and Haas with K-9 called. The flop came with 3-8-K and Haas checked and Bicknell made a 50,000 bet which was called by Haas. A J came on the turn and Haas again checked to see Bicknell bet another 130,000. Haas raised to 280,000 and Bicknell called. The river came with a 7 and Haas moved all in. Bicknell called and showed the Ace kicker that won the event. Haas got a $107,616 prize for her 2nd place, not bad for her first WSOP cash.
