Event #53: $1,000 Ladies No-Limit Hold’em Championship

Valerie McColligan Eliminated in 4th Place ($74,459)

Valerie McColligan - 4th Place ($74,459)

Karina Jett is now guaranteed her best-ever finish in the WSOP Ladies Event after catching lightning in a bottle to send Valerie McColligan to the rail!

Carol Tomlinson folded from the cutoff, as did Marsha Wolak from the button before Jett made it 60,000 to go from the small blind. McColligan snap-shoved from the big blind and Jett beat her into the pot.

McColligan: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}
Jett: {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}

McColligan kept the lead after the dealer spread the flop of {6-Hearts}{7-Spades}{3-Spades}, but a possible chopportunity came down on the turn in the form of the {5-Clubs}. Only six outs remained in the deck ...

River: {K-Clubs}


Jett's supporters went ballistic and she bolted to the rail to celebrate as McColligan clawed her hands near her face, silently screaming and cursing the poker gods for her demise.

Still, it was a valiant effort from Valerie, who picks up $74,459. With her elimination, we're down to three!
