Ladies show no mercy at WSOPC Indiana

Veronica Heath

If there was any doubt about whether women have the "killer instinct" necessary to make it in poker, the World Series of Poker Circuit Ladies Event at Caesars Indiana helped put those worries to rest.

The ladies came out shooting at the final table Sunday, playing slam-bang, no-holds-barred poker. Case in point: It only took 12 hands to make the first elimination, and after 25 more hands, it was all over.

Carla Keding may have been the biggest aggressor during the game, betting and raising the most and taking out the first player, but it was Veronica Heath (pictured) who came out on top as the leading lady.

It came down to Heath and Keding in a heads-up match that would last all of two hands. That hand that did Keding in was Qd-Tc against Heath's Kc-Qs. When a queen flopped and a king hit the turn, it was all over.

"I want a ring," Heath said as she wrapped up her win. Who wouldn't in her position when she'll now have two pendants, one from the WSOPC Ladies Event that took place at the same venue two years ago?

She outlasted a field of 248 players this time to walk away with $13,748 out of a $42,962 prize pool.

The final table results are as follows:
