In a three-way pot, Barbara made a raise on fifth street showing , representing a straight.
By the river, these were the players' upcards:
The action was checked to Barbara, who fired one last bet on the river. Opponent 1 called and opponent 2 mucked his hand. Barbara revealed J-10 for a Queen-high straight and her opponent showed A-K before mucking his hand, adding that he'd made two pair with the first 4 cards he was dealt.
Barbara's accolades are truly remarkable. She was the first woman to win an open WSOP bracelet, the first to win the Ladies Event twice, and the highest placing female in WSOP Main Event history (5th in 1995).
Each time she sits down at the table, she's a force to be reckoned with; we'll keep you posted on her progress throughout the day.
