ebony kennyOne of my favorite fans of $200,000 purchase at Coin Rivet Invitational, its first ultra-high performance cylinder, took fifth place for $1,700,000. In doing so, she came one card (literally) away from setting the record for the largest live cash tournament ever by a woman.

The high stakes No-Limit Hold’em event attracted 115 participants to the Merit Royal Diamond Hotel & Spa. Among these players were the likes of Phil IvyAnd the Stink HolesAnd the Tony JAnd the Patrick AntoniosThe usual suspects in the biggest tournaments around the world.

Kenny, who previously had $657,000 in live spins, according to Hendon Mob, was one of the irregular rollercoasters competing in the Coin Rivet Invitational. But she had no problem keeping up with those who used to play for such high stakes, as evidenced by her fifth place finish.

With such a deep run, I collected the fifth largest score ever by a woman. In her last hand, she lost with her pocket for nine pocket Carl Chappie Gatenwho turned nine and went on to win the bowl.

Despite the bad hit, Kenny increased Hendon Mob’s results to $2,357,000 for life. The score was an impressive $1.7 million, but had she won the hand against Chap-Gatten, she likely would have climbed a place (or more) at the final table, which would have been meaningful for more than just increasing payouts.

Holz took fourth place at Coin Rivet Invitational, paying $2,100,000. Why is this number significant? Because it would have been the largest amount of cash by a female.

So, who still keeps this record? You are probably thinking Kristen FoxenAnd the Vanessa Selfor maybe even Jennifer Harman (Although it is a more cash game player), but you would be incorrect with any of these guesses.

And the correct answer is Annette Oberstad, who set several records in the same event – the 2007 World Series of Poker main event in Europe, which paid the champion $2,013,733. In winning that tournament, the former Internet Crusher was known as “Annette_15” She became the youngest-ever WSOP bracelet winner (one day before her 19th birthday).

These days, Obrestad doesn’t play much poker and now has a makeup review and tips YouTube channel.

Obristad’s phenomenal result in 2007 surpassed the previous record for females set by Annie Duke – $2,000,000 – Who beat Phil Hellmouth Heads up for the 2004 WSOP Tournament of Champions.

Self, long ago Pokerstars Ambassador, she still ranks third on this impressive list due to her $1,823,400 points total when she won the 2010 Partouche Poker Tour Main Event. It’s a far cry from all-time live tournament earnings among women with an $11.9 million range. life.

As for fourth place on the list, that goes to Kathy Lynnwho finished third for $1,785,000 in the 2019 partypoker LIVE Millions Super High Roller.
