This is what the World Series of Poker is all about.
In what is easily Caitlyn Howe's best video of the WSOP for PokerNews she tracks down amateur Chicago home game poker player Debbie Motycka who they find on a heater, accumulating chips and taking a stand against the pros at her table.
Sure, she’s a little nervous, but she’s not going to be bullied about by the young aggros taking aim at her. She paid her entrance fee, she’s shipped her chips and the cards fell in her favor.
While the soft spoken Bulls fan didn’t make it through the day, she has the glorious WSOP story of going deep in Event #26 and making almost $12K for her efforts.
(Which is more than this writer has ever made playing poker.)
