Ronit Chamani (Johannesburg, South Africa) & Marsha Wolak (Fort Lauderdale) are the only two women in the field (so far) and are expecting to make deep runs.

Wolak is a WSOP bracelet holder (2011 Ladies Event) with $342,000 in career recorded tournament earnings, while Chamani has $327,000 inĀ  earnings which includes a win in Hollywood’s 2011 Winter Poker Open Championship.

Wolak already has one $500 bounty and has more than 40k, while Chamani has less than half of her 15k starting stack.

“I’ll never miss a six-max,” says Chamani, “unless I’m very, very ill, which rarely happens because I eat well.”

It’s been well documented that Chamani is a raw food vegan gourmet chef who also works with organizations to teach sustainable gardening techniques to struggling people in South Africa.

This is the last level for entry as the cage closes after the break at ~7:20 pm.
