wpt.jpgThe World Poker Tour has not been able to celebrate a female champion at any of their events, but that changed when Van Nguyen won the WPT Celebrity Invitational. Van Nguyen is the wife of Men “The Master” Nguyen, one of the most famous professional poker players in the world, and she was one of the 455 poker players and Hollywood celebrities who were invited to play in the WPT Celebrity Invitational.

Only five players were present at the final table, as professional poker player Billy Baxter eliminated two players on the final table bubble, leaving only five to play in front of the cameras that are present at WPT final tables. Thanks to his double knockout, Billy Baxter held the chip lead to begin the final table.

Elias Madias was the fifth place finisher at the final table, earning $10,000 and was quickly followed to the exits by Justin Marchand, who earned $15,000. Billy Baxter would be eliminated in third place, taking home $20,000 and setting up a heads-up duel between Van Nguyen and Ethan Ruby. Van Nguyen held a large chip lead over her competitor, and it would not be long before Nguyen sealed her victory. Ethan Ruby’s runner-up finish netted him $50,000 while Van Nguyen won $100,000 and a $25,000 entry into the WPT Championship.

The drought is over, the World Poker Tour has finally crowned a female poker player as a champion.
