Ladies side event Result – 30/07/2018 – 12:30
Congratulations to Rachel Clegg, who becomes the first Grosvenor UK Women’s Poker Champion! 🏆👸🏼💰
Well played to all the other ladies that made the money, including the nine that finished on the final table.
Thanks to every single lady that played and supported this event. Without you all it wouldn’t have been the massive success that it has been.
Also big shout out to all the many men that have shown support for this event too, sharing social posts and encouraging females they know to play it, as well as those that railed both online and live at the event today.
Last but certainly not least, huge well done to Grosvenor for holding this Championship event in the first place, for listening to customers, plus all the staff making efforts behind the scenes to make everything as smooth as possible. It’s not an easy task, but the hard work paid off!
See you and many more, the same time, same place next year girls I hope..
Chip Leader – 30/07/2018 – 2018 – 12:11
Table 31 see’s Rakshi Pajpani get AQ v KK and the chips are in the middle all Pre-Flop in the first hand of the Goliath. An Ace is the first card out and he doubles up and eliminates his opponent.
Several hands later he raises in Middle Position and gets called by Seat 5. Flop comes and he leads out. Seat 5 announces raise and Simon has all his chips in the middle again. His opponent has for the flopped straight. Rakshi needs some help. Turn is and the river brings the . Incredible run out and Rakshi moves along with 80,000 and is the current Chip Leader.
