The final table of the ladies' tournament - playing poker in a mink stole? Vanessa Hellebuyck of France (far left) won. Linda Johnson is the first lady of poker, much respected for promoting the game. Christine Pietsch didn't enter the ladies event - she was busy on the other side of the room beating the men at 7-card stud. In spite of going into heads-up with a chip lead, it was not to be.
