Whoa whoa whoa whoa.
With 13 remaining at the 2010 WPT Festa al Lago, Annette Obrestad, a woman, is the chip leader.
A woman has never won an open WPT event before. A woman has never captured two legs of the elusive poker triple crown. A woman has never been funny at stand-up comedy. A black man has never been elected president. Wait. That happened? Really? Wow. What were we talking about again?
Anyway, the aforementioned Annette is stacked at 2,009,000. She’s followed by recent WPT winner Andy Frankenberger (so much for never hearing from him again) with 1,820,00. 9/11 truther/rapper Jeff Madsen is third (1,500,000) and tournament structure savant Allen “Chainsaw” Kessler is fourth (1,275,000).
Lauren Kling, a woman, was the final elimination of the day, by the way, bowing out in 14th place for $32,240.
