Leo Margets comments “I returned from playing in the WSOP woman’s event in Vegas a few weeks ago and just had a feeling that if I could go back for the main event I would do well. It was just a hunch, but it’s proved right! I approached who had sponsored me in the woman’s event, and asked if they would sponsor me through the main WSOP tournament. Very kindly, they agreed and I’m glad I’ve repaid their trust by getting this far!”

“You have to make the right moves, increase the pace, and go with the leaders at the right time. If the pace increases now I can’t be left behind otherwise I won’t make the final table. But I’m proud to be the final woman left in the competition.”
