It took until the final week of the series, but Spanish player Leo Margets took down Event #83: $1,500 The Closer at the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) for her first-ever bracelet. The Winamax player banked a 6-figure for the biggest of her career, bringing her career winnings over $1.5 million.
The $376,850 top prize was her fourth career win, and the largest score she’s managed on the green felt. Her only other $300k+ score came more than a decade ago but was also earned at the WSOP when she made the final three tables of the 2009 Main Event, finishing 27th for $352,832.
While there is always a female bracelet winner in the Ladies Event, Margets’ closeout represents the first bracelet for a woman in an open event at the 2021 WSOP.
It was Margets fourth cash at this year’s series, and she went on to bank a fifth cash for $11,000 in event #88 a few days later. Her five cashes this year brings her WSOP total to 18 cashes since her big score in 2009, but this was her first 6-digit score at WSOP since she was second in the Double Stack in 2018 for $123,297.
The final week of the World Series of Poker is now underway in Las Vegas, but the European component, running at King’s Resort, Rozvadov in the Czech Republic, is now in full swing.
