Loni Harwood, a woman, won an open event bracelet and vaults to #3 in the POY standings.

For fuck’s sake already.

When it happened the first time, we thought it was cute. Like, “Awwww…how sweet. She must’ve kept flopping trips and over-playing bottom pair and Ace high to victory like a French person does.”

Harwood’s $609,017 cash was the single largest score by a woman in WSOP history.
