Jennifer Harman Does Not Win WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star

Last year, J.J. Liu came thisclose to becoming the first woman to win a WPT event that you actually have to pay money to enter, coming in second at the Bay 101 "So-Called" Shooting Star main event.

Brandon Cantu wins WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star.This year, it was Jennifer Harman's, a woman, turn.

Harman entered final table play as one of the short-stacks. As the last remaining so-called "shooting star" and last remaining woman, she had a lot on the line. In an interview made up in our head right before final table play began, Harman imaginarily told us:

"As the last so-called shooting star and last remaining woman in the tournament, I recognize that there's a lot of the line. You know what I'm saying?"

It wasn't meant to be, however, as Harman bowed out in third place, banking $330,000.

It was meant to be, however, for Brandon Cantu, who pretty much was the chip leader or near the chip lead from Day 1. Cantu was never really threatened during final table play, eventually eliminating Steve Sung for the title.

This is Cantu's first WPT main event win. He also won a WSOP bracelet in 2006.

For the win, Cantu banks $1,000,000 to go along with the year supply of almonds he won earlier in the week as the Blue Diamond Almonds Bold Player of the Day.
