Konnikova's High Stakes Adventure Ends

Maria Konnikova

One of the most accomplished players in the field today is Maria Konnikova. Maybe not at the poker tables, but with a Harvard degree, a PhD in Psychology from Columbia University and a New York Times bestseller book, the Russian-American writer has been doing pretty well for herself. Her latest work will feature Erik Seidel and will be about her year long immersion in the world of high stakes poker.

One of those high stakes chapters played out today, as Konnikova put her skills to the test in the €5,300 PokerStars Championship Event. Her run came to a close in the last level of the day. Holding ace-nine, Konnikova got it all in preflop against pocket queens and got eliminated after the board ran out {6-}{10-}{3-}{10-}{Q-}.
