Maria Ho was only two spots away from winning her first 2018 title when she final tabled the $25,500 LAPC Rockstar Energy High Roller. Ho entered the stacked final table that included Nick Petrangelo and Alex Foxen second in chips. Down to three players Ho was all in with ace-five suited versus Foxen’s pocket nines and failed to improve.
Ho takes home $188,875 for her third place finish. Ho’s deep run bodes well for her chance of success at the WSOP this year.
