The women's tournament - Ladies No-Limit Hold'em Championship with a $1 000 buy-in for girls and $10 000 for guys has started at the WSOP 2019. There were 968 entries, and only ladies gathered at the poker tables this time. 261 of them passed to the second day and 146 will get into the cash.
The minimal payout amount is $1 500. The champion of the event will get the WSOP bracelet and $167 000.
According to the results of the first game day, Chris Moorman's wife, Katie Lindsay has almost taken the lead - she has 245 000 chips. The player who is ahead Katie is Jennifer Lopez - the girl has 251 000 chips.
We haven’t found Jennifer’s photos in the official reports and we don’t know whether the girl has the exact name like the famous actress and singer or this is "J. Lo" herself, but judging by the celebrity’s Instagram - she is now very busy with her #ItsMyPartyTour and hardly spends time at the tables of the World Series of Poker.
There is also no information on the poker success of Lopez, but we have something to say about Lindsay.
The girl has been playing in tournaments since 2013, but her first significant results are dated with 2015. That’s when she got married with the best online tournament player - Chris Moorman. He probably gave her some lessons since over the next few years, Katie over 40 times got into the cash at various prestigious tournaments and won more than $300 000. The girl 18 times reached the prize zone of the WSOP. Now she has a good chance to win her first bracelet.
