Lara Eisenberg victorious in the Ladies No Limit Hold’em Championship

After four days of action, Lara Eisenberg is the winner of the $1,000 LADIES No-Limit Hold’em Championship. Eisenberg, who had earned 15 WSOP cashes prior to her win, takes home her first WSOP bracelet as well as the first-place prize of $115,694.

In her path to victory, Eisenberg outlasted a field of 644 including Debora Brooke heads-up ($71,507), followed by Mikiyo Aoki ($50,525), Diana Cooley $36,269) and JJ Liu ($26,458).

In post-match comments, Eisenberg noted that the tournament was “amazing.” “It’s an absolute dream come true. I came into this event hoping that maybe sometime I would make a final table, and to walk away winning it is an indescribable feeling.”

Below you can watch the conclusion of the event, which was streamed on PokerGo:

Dalibor Dula wins $1,000 Freezout No Limit Hold’em

Dalibor Dula took down his first bracelet on Thursday night when he won Event #26, the $1,000 Freezeout No Limit Hold’em for $199,227. Dula outlasted 1358 players over the two-day event including Cole Ferraro heads-up. Maurice Hawkins, a 14-time WSOP Circuit Ring winner, finished in 9th place to win $17,270.

Dula, a player from the Czech Republic, only had around $30k in recorded cashes to his name prior to the victory. After the victory, Dula noted that he got lucky throughout the final table. “I was just so focused. I did not really think about the flips. Once you are all in, it is out of your hands, you can’t do anything to win that all in or lose it.”
