The woman Dan Bilzerian claimed ‘no one knew’ let the poker do the speaking to turn out to be one in all the most iconic on-line champions in latest reminiscence.
Most years when the Sunday Million hosts their Anniversary occasion the headlines are about the variety of runners (69.876 this time, not too shabby) however every so often in poker a winner comes alongside that steals the present.
Vanessa Kade was already a fairly well-known streamer however final yr she was thrust into the limelight when Dan Bilzerian known as her a ‘hoe’ after his sponsorship take care of GGPoker was introduced. It was a second that confirmed most of our worst fears about him as an envoy.
Kade spent the subsequent few months utilizing the incident as a springboard to name out sexism in poker. This led to a different public feud with GGPoker when they terminated her affiliate deal with them. On the plus aspect, simply this month she introduced a sponsorship take care of Americas Card Room (Chris Moneymaker’s new dwelling).
A loopy three months had the most fairy story ending of all of them, when final night time she gained the Sunday Million Anniversary occasion for $1,514,920.
One of the iconic poker victories
It was a passionately railed remaining desk the place we noticed Kade go from micro stack to champion. Along the method she used her timebank to permit the disconnected chip chief time to get again into the recreation – all the time an indicator of an aesthetic participant.
No deal was made at the remaining desk, a rarity in this occasion, which means that Kade’s prize was formally the biggest single prize ever gained in the Sunday Million.
What’s subsequent for Kade? Stardom, realistically. This was actually one in all the nice poker victories, up there with Moneymaker, maratik, Maria Konnikova and Annette Obrestad. The scrumptious irony being that the now notorious tweet from Dan Bilzerian has contributed to Kade being probably one in all the most well-known gamers in the trendy recreation.
We simply beat a discipline of 69,876 to win $1.5 Million.
It feels unattainable.
This is the greatest day of my life.
It’s not shut.
