Our Last Woman Standing TM at the 2009 WSOP Main Event Leonor “Leo” Margets, a woman, is the first to go today. Shortstacked at the start of play, she pushed pre-flop with A-7 and got called by Warren Zackey with A-10. The board missed and she’s out in 27th place, earning $352,832*.
From what we’ve seen, Leo Margets has already garnered a lot of mainstream media coverage in Spain, and just for playing the WSOP Ladies Event earlier in the series. Her deep run in the 2009 WSOP Main Event should bring tons more, which is definitely Good for PokerTM in Spain and good for us if it has a Moneymaker-like EffectTM of getting more cute Spanish girls into poker.
Related, apparently cheating on Spanish exams all through high school wasn’t a good way to learn the language because we haven’t a clue what Leo is saying in the video above. We still watched the whole thing anyway because damn that accent. Could listen to girls from Spain talk all day, especially cute, poker playing, marathon running ones.

* Just realized that Leo Marget’s $352,832 is the biggest cash in a WSOP Main Event by a woman ever (or at least since Tiffany “Crazy Bitch” Williamson, a woman, won $400,000 for finishing 15th in the 2005 WSOP Main Event). Last year’s Last Woman StandingTM Tiffany Michelle, a woman, took home $334,534 for 17th place.
