Monday June 29,2015 : 2015 WSOP Event 53
In Event 53 a Florida realtor who has been playing tournaments for the last 40 years, Jacqueline Scott (66), claimed her first winner's bracelet after vanquishing a field of 795 entrants from 40 nations in the $1,000 buy-in NLHE Ladies Championship.
After three competitive days, her share of the $715,500 prize pool was $153,876 when she crushed the final table and mowed down final heads up opponent Hope Williams in short order by leveraging a 4 to 1 chip advantage, dispatching her to the cashier and a runner up reward of $95,039.
“I think the Ladies event is really special,” Scott commented after the event. “I’m used to playing mostly with men back at home, but decided to come out for the first time and play in this. I was so impressed by the way everyone behaves and the kindness you see at the table. We talk among ourselves and really enjoy the atmosphere. Many women make this their one Las Vegas tournament of the year.”

Amanda Sizemore $61,268
