Michelle Chin makes WSOP history.
Michelle Chin has made World Series of Poker (WSOP) history at Horseshoe Casino in Council Bluffs, Iowa by becoming the first-ever female champion of a World Series of Poker Circuit Main Event.
Chin, a Taiwan native and resident of Wichita, Kansas, who classifies herself as a recreational poker player bested a totally male dominated final table to win the title, $88 126 in prize money and a WSOP gold ring.
