2019 WSOP Day 38: Woman Wins Warriors Event
The third and final starting day delivered thousands of additional players to the WSOP Main Event, putting the estimated total of entries over the 8,000 mark. Final totals won’t be available for some time, as registration remains open.
As if the Main Event wasn’t exciting in its own right, there were two players disqualified from the tournament and escorted off the property on Day 1C of the action. One openly took another player’s chips on the table, attempting to scoop them into his own. Another moved all-in blind, pulled down his pants, mooned his table, removed his shoes and socks, and threw a shoe at the dealer before being removed.

As the only other bracelet tournament playing out besides the Main Event, there was a bit of excitement surrounding Event 71, the $500 buy-in NLHE Salute to Warriors tournament. It was a special tribute event to raise money for veteran-benefiting organizations, and it did just that by delivering $43,075 for USO-funded projects in the Las Vegas area.
The special event also delivered its first female open-event bracelet winner of the 2019 WSOP, as Susan Faber was the last player standing when the tournament ended. “I am so excited and so thrilled to be a bracelet winner!” she said. “This was definitely on my bucket list.”
Faber’s poker interest spans about 10 years but with more serious tournaments in the past five. Even so, she had only won little more than $55K before this event. The 71-year-old also felt gratified to have won this event that she played for a special reason. “I played this event because my husband is a veteran, and it was wonderful that I could support the veterans.” She also added, “I am so excited that I could do this at my age.”
