It was a gorgeous event at the Malta Poker Festival with Katie Swift hosting the Ladies First tournament. A not-so-shabby turnout of 100 women entered with Elizabeth Reeves bagging a first-place win of €2,500. It was a fun evening filled with champaign and cards, what more could a girl ask for?
Ladies First Winner – Elizabeth Reeves
The Final Table at the Ladies First Event
It was a strong final table at the ladies’ event with a few seasoned players taking their seats. The tournament was essentially a turbo event with 20-minute blinds, and the final table took about 90 minutes to complete. The game concluded in quick succession with third place Mary Kerr getting it in with 10c8d and being called by Qh2h. She didn’t improve and left the game with €1,160 for her efforts. In the very next hand, the money went all in again between the final two players, Jennifer Stodart and Elizabeth Reeves. Stodart was holding 9s9d and Reeves AsJd. The window card produced a Jh, and Stodart couldn’t find either of her two outers to take the hand back. Elizabeth Reeves, the overwhelming chip leader for much of the final table, walked away victorious with Stodart in second.
