At this point, we could probably convince ourselves that Jeff Madsen actually makes some good points when he argues his 9/11 Truther conspiracies before we could convince ourselves that a woman will someday win a WPT title.
Okay, probably not. We couldn’t even fake believing that crap.
Time after time though women creep their way up the chip count in WPT events, even make final tables and get our hopes up, only to fall short of capturing a WPT title. This time it was Lisa Hamilton, a woman, who was in a pretty solid position to make the seemingly, and perhaps actually, impossible happen when she started today in 3rd chip position at the WPT Jacksonville. Hamilton though was eliminated in third place.
Winning the title was Anthony “Boston Tony” Ruberto, who defeated 21-year-old Sam Soverel heads-up to become the latest WPT Champion. Ruberto pockets $325,928 for the win. Soverel takes home $187,762 and Hamilton earns $112,657. ClubWPT.com qualifier and fan favorite Artie Rodriguez finished fifth, good for a $55k cash.
Final table results below:
1st: Anthony Ruberto – $325,928
