Cheers For Hammers

Tom Hammers

Tom Hammers entered the Ladies Championship for $10,000 with intentions of donating all his winnings specifically to charities that support women.

Unfortunately, he was recently eliminated by the chip leader Christina Gollins. She told PokerNews that she raised from under the gun with pocket aces and Hammers moved all-in with pocket sevens. Gollin's aces held and she got the knockout.

As Hammers stood up from his table the entire Brasilia room erupted cheers and whistles, a tradition whenever a man who enters the ladies event busts from the tournament.

Meanwhile, Tom's wife, Sherry Hammers, and his daughter, Jordan Watson are still alive in the ladies' championship.

Shahade's Queens Win

Jen Shahade

An early position player called and Jen Shahade raised to 4,000, which folded the action around to the early position player who put her entire stack of 42,500 in the middle. Shahade thought for a short while then called.
