Poker Around the World


3 women reach final table of IFP World Championship

When a single female participant makes the final table of a major tournament it’s usually enough of a story to receive a mention in the wrap-ups, so when three females landed at the final table of the International Poker Federations World Championship, unless President Obama was the winner you knew it would be the headline!

The three women who navigated the tough field to reach the final table were some of the biggest names in women’s poker: Women in Poker Hall of Fame member Marsha Waggoner, EPT winner Sandra Naujoks from Germany, and EPT winner Victoria Coren from the UK. Coren would fare the best of the three, making it to heads-up play against Spain’s Raul Mestre, but would fall just short of the title as Mestre managed to best Coren in a classic heads-up battle.

The IFP World Championship was an invitation-only tournament that saw 120 players show-up for the $500k freeroll in London, England. The champion of the tournament would pocket a massive 50% of the prize-pool; making this a very top-heavy payout tournament (the Top 3 finishers would take home 80% of the total prize-pool).

Here is a look at the final table payouts from the tournament:

1. Raul Mestre (Spain) — $250,000
2. Victoria Coren (UK) — $100,000
3. Igor Trafane (Brazil) — $50,000
4. Slavko Tomic (Serbia) — $25,000
5. Marsha Waggoner (Australia) — $20,000
6. Sandra Naujoks (Germany) — 17500
7. Takuo Serita (Japan) — 15,000
8. Tim Reese (Germany) — 12,500
9. Kinichi Nakata (Japan) — $10,000

The IFP World Championship was part of the weekend-long event that included the Nations Cup, the first-ever Duplicate Poker tournament, which was won by the team from Germany. Team Germany managed to squeak out the win in the innovative format that awards points based on how well a hand was played (each player is dealt the same hand over the course of the tournament), besting Brazil and France by a margin of 2 points: 24 to 22.

The winning Nations Cup consisted of Stephan Kalhammer (who captained the German squad) and included Sebastian Ruthenberg, Moritz Kranich and Tobias Reinkemeier, IFP World Championship final table participant Sandra Naujoks, Konstantin Buecherl, Hans Martin Vogl and Tim Reese.
