So close…yet…dare we say…so far?
Women are now math math math around 0-for-150 in open World Poker Tour events.
But this one was closer than most.
Gigi Gagne, a woman, held the chip lead entering the WPT Lucky Hearts final table, and even made it to heads-up play. But unlike Wilson Phillips, she couldn’t hold on till the end, bowing out in second for $158,194.
Gagne lost to Matt Juttelstad, who banks $268,444 and his first WPT title.
It’s not all bad news for Gagne though, as she’s now off to Vienna to get married to a man she just met a week ago. Not making that up.
