While not in an event as prestigious as Event #47: $111,111 One Drop High Rollers No-Limit Hold'em, President and CEO of SunCoast Resources Kathy Lehne is taking a second shot here in Event #52: $25,000 No-Limit Hold'em (Six Handed).
For those who don't know SunCoast Resources is a petroleum distributor. Lehne founded the company with her savings of $2,000 back in 1985 when she was just 23 years old. Fast forward to 2009 and the company had more than $1.2 billion in revenue, 400 employees and was named No. 12 on 2008's Entrepreneur’s 50 Fastest-Growing Women-Led Companies.
At this point, Lehne is the only woman in the tournament. We'll be keeping an eye on Lehne as she progresses here through Day 1.
