As you may or may not be aware, no woman has ever won a regular World Poker Tour open event. In fact, women are 0-for-47,297 (approximately) in WPT open events.
That could all change today, as Lily Kiletto, a woman, attempts to make history by capturing the WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open.
Kiletto, who like the Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus) of Australia and Indonesia could best be described as “exotic,” has been shot out of a poker cannon this year, cashing in three 2013 events to date for um $4,000. In case you’re wondering who owns the small CybergBug-B drone taking cleavage shots of Kiletto at the final table, well, that would belong to Barry Greenstein.
Kiletto enters the final table as short-stack but dammit full of hope, stacked at 860,000.

Chris Porter Matt Giannetti attempts to claim his second WPT title, entering final table play as the chip leader with 3,005,000. Als0 looking for his second title, and making back-to-back WPT final table appearances, is Matt Salsberg (yeah the Weeds producer). He’s fifth overall with 980,000.
