Day 1 Completed
Barbara Rogers pulled off a win for the ages on Sunday night. Rodgers bested a field of 67 to win the final event of the Seneca Fall Poker classic and the $5,903 top prize. And she did it after having only 70,000 chips during heads-up player to her opponent's 1.2 million!
Rogers battled back, eventually taking the chip lead and never looking back en route to the title.
When we snapped her winner's photo she insisted that her dealers be included in the shot for helping her to the win. But Rogers has nobody to credit but herself for pulling off one of the biggest comebacks we've seen this year.
Congrats to Barabara on her incredible victory!
Event #5 attracted a total of 67 entries, and only 14 remain. Among those still alive include Alicia Pachla, Brett Short, Carol Leonardi, Barabara Rogers and Tom MacKinnon.
