Igor Ioffe opened to 1,400,000 from middle position. Action folded to Justin Bullion who moved all in for 1,925,000. Back to Ioffe, he made the call to put Bullion at risk.
The players saw the hit the board. No one had a flush draw, so Bullion still looked to be in good shape with two pair. The turn and brought Ioffe into the lead with a straight, though, and eliminated Bullion on short of the unofficial final table.
In the mid 1980’s, women were considered no factor in the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event, and other than the famous rounder and professional gambler Thomas “Amarillo Slim” Preston, poker players rarely made headlines in the mainstream press. That all changed when Wendeen Eolis became the first woman to cash at poker’s “Big Dance.”
In the 1986 WSOP Main Event, Eolis battled some of the best players in the world, including Amarillo Slim, in a field of 141 runners. She was on her way to a 25th-place finish for a $10,000, return on her buy-in, and permanent bragging rights as the first woman in history to cash in the WSOP Main Event.
Eolis attributes her 1986 WSOP performance to a year of poker tutoring from one of the best, a “relatively” conservative game plan, and cooperative cards. She told PokerNews, “Even today, women can win more by bluffing less than men.”
Sokchheka Pho entered the pot from middle position before action folded to Konstantin Angelov Angelov. He potted to nearly 3,000,000. Pho called with a short stack and the players flipped their cards over.
Angelov was jamming to some music in his headphones as he watched the board run out to give him the winner. Pho was eliminated as players get closer to the final table.
"You like that song now," noted Vivian Saliba.
"He was doing that the whole time," said Benjamin Miner.
Angelov kept his head nodding to the beat as he raked the pot.
