LPA tournament makes dreams come true
The Ladies Poker Association Pro Tour made a stop at the Commerce Casino for its Dream Weekend, giving women two shots at tour success and a whole lot of cash. The lucky ladies walking away with the wins: Susie Isaacs and Terresa Gallagher.
After busting out of the World Series of Poker Main Event during Day 2b, Susie Isaacs decided to head to L.A. and take part in the LPA tournaments there. It turned out to be the right decision as she turned Saturday's $335 buy-in into a win.
With a prize pool of $18,042, she pocketed $6,790 and gets to take home a trophy and $1,065 buy-in for the Ladies event of the 2008 L.A. Poker Classic.
Here's the list of ladies who cashed in the tournament:
On Sunday, Isaacs again made it into the money of the tournament, but it was Terresa "London" Gallagher who edged her way to the top for a win. She takes home $7,277 of the $17,460 prize pool as well as a trophy and $1,075 seat in an event at the Legends of Poker at the Bicycle Casino.
Another $1,065 seat in the L.A. Poker classic event was giving to the second-place finisher Denise Aaron. Third- and fourth-place finishers Isaacs and Louise Rocchio each received seats in the California Ladies State Championship as well.
