Enright Wins LIPS Event


The month long Legends of Poker is underway at the Bicycle Club in Bell Gardens, California. In the LIPS No Limit ladies event Barbara Enright took the top spot.

Barbara is the only woman to reach the final table at the WSOP Main Event and was inducted to the Poker Hall of Fame in 2007. Barbara has been performing consistently over the years. Prior to this win Barbara had won the Ladies No Limit Hold’em Event in the Cleopatra Open in Las Vegas in April 2008.

Another interesting episode that took place in the Legend of Pokers event was that famous poker author John Vorhaus participated in drag under the alias Cinnamon Shag. He finished seventh in the ladies event and won $725. He claimed that his participation was a part of his work since he wanted to experience a ladies tournament from a female perspective. He said this was his first and last tournament in drag.
