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

Carol Tomlinson Eliminated in 3rd Place ($74,459)

Carol Tomlinson - 3rd Place ($74,459)

Marsha Wolak raised to 65,000 on the button and Carol Tomlinson moved all in from the big blind for around 575,000 total. Wolak made the call to put Tomlinson at risk as the players turned over their hands.

Wolak: {K-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}
Tomlinson: {A-Diamonds}{8-Spades}

Tomlinson was slightly ahead preflop and both players paired up on the flop but it came {J-Spades}{8-Clubs}{3-Hearts} to give Wolak top pair over Tomlinson’s mid pair. The {5-Spades} on the turn changed nothing and Tomlinson was down to an ace or eight for her tournament life. The river was the {Q-Spades} and unfortunately for Tomlinson, she was eliminated in third place. As Wolak’s rail has been doing for most of the final table, they cheered “Marsha, Marsha, Marsha” who enters play heads up with the chip lead against Karina Jett.
