For the second time in four years French poker pro Gaëlle Baumann is the last woman standing in the WSOP Main Event.

Baumann locked up the achievement after Melanie Weisner busted in 127th place just after the dinner break on Day 5 of the 2016 WSOP Main Event.

The French pro didn’t make it that much farther, however, and was eliminated in 102nd place. She picked up $49,108 as a consolation prize for her efforts.

Baumann famously finished 10th in the 2012 WSOP Main Event, just shy of the final table, which started at nine players.

She became just the fourth player in the history of the WSOP to become the last woman stand in the Main Event twice.

Baumann officially joined the ranks of Maria Ho (2007, 2014), Annie Duke (2000, 2003) and Marsha Waggoner (1993, 1997).

Hardly a one-trick pony, Baumann has racked up over $240,000 on the international poker circuit since she finished 10th for $590,000 in 2012.

With her 102nd place finish in the 2016 WSOP Main Event she moved past Jennifer Tilly into 31st on the women’s all-time money list with $934,312.

Here’s a look at the last woman standing in the Main Event for the last 10 years and the spots they finished:

2015 — Kelly Minkin — 29th
2014 — Maria Ho — 77th
2013 — Jackie Glazier — 31st
2012 — Gaëlle Baumann — 10th
2011 — Erika Moutinho — 29th
2010 — Breeze Zuckerman — 121st
2009 — Leo Margets — 27th
