Final Day of Action

The five players who returned for the PokerGO live-streamed final table were each guaranteed $26,458 but they were all aiming for their first WSOP gold bracelet. Unfortunately, that wasn’t meant to be for all of them. Women’s Poker Hall of Famer JJ Liu was the first casualty of the day finishing in fifth place.

Diane Cooley was the second elimination of the day finishing in fourth place when she got it in with pocket queens against Eisenberg's turned flush. She was drawing to a spade and could not get there.

"It’s an absolute dream come true."

2014 WSOP Ladies Championship runner-up, Mikiyo Aoki came into the final day as the chip leader but lost a crucial flip against Lara Eisenberg which would set her up for victory. Aoki fell short of besting her 2014 second-place finish and first WSOP bracelet, finishing in third place.

Debora Brooke finished runner-up for $71,507. In her bust-out hand she had a pair of kings, but Eisenberg also held a pair of kings with a better kicker.
