Mary Jones cashes but doesn't repeat her Ladies Event win.

The women played down to the final nine last night and one of those left standing was a member of the World Series of Poker Academy Ladies Only class. It looks like Sally Boyer graduated from the class with honors.

She was one of five classmates who made it into the money of the 2007 Vanessa Selbst with $345,000
  • Seat 2: Katja Thater with $340,000
  • Seat 3: Mindy Trinidad with $344,000
  • Seat 4: Kathy Giva with $147,000
  • Seat 5: Anne Heft with $277,000
  • Seat 6: Sally Boyer with $326,000
  • Seat 7: Julie Dang with $48,000
  • Seat 8: Frauke Ritter Von Sporschill with $523,000
  • Seat 9: Randi Calabro with $110,000
  • Boyer is hanging out right around the middle of the pack chip-count wise, and she's got a healthy fear of the chip leader.

    But when asked how she plans to handle the final table, her response was to "just keep doing what I'm doing and play my game."

    You can keep up with how the final nine ladies battle it out when the final table returns today to play at 2 p.m. (PST) by tuning in to the PokerListings.com Live Tournaments Section.
