Nearly 30 years after her last WSOP title, Barbara Enright is back in the running for the coveted bracelet. In the final week of the 54th installment of the series, she entered Event 91: the $3,000 H.O.R.S.E. segment. The California player was eliminated in four hands for $62,783.
Barbara is a pioneer in WSOP history. In 1995, she became the first woman to reach the final table of a Main Event, a feat that has not been repeated to this day. The following season, Barbara shouted in Event 19: US$2,500 PL Hold’em, winning the first women’s bracelet in history.
Barbara is approaching her 74th birthday and sees herself against 91 in a tournament full of stars, including Calvin Anderson, “cal42688”. A Hall of Fame opponent, he had almost 75 percent of the chips in three hands. Despite his comfortable lead, the Grinder missed the heads-up. In total, Anderson earned $89,169.
The tiebreaker requires an extra stage. Ryan Miller returned to victory after being eliminated from the Event 63: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better tournament. While winning $208,466, runner-up Leonard August added $128,835 to his bankroll.
