Christine Benedict, our favorite lady Canadian, took down the Freeroll Atlanta Fall 2012 Final Tournament!
This is perfect timing for a free Vegas vacation as her and her new husband, Freeroll TD Blake Benedict, have yet to book their honeymoon!
Christine started the tournament at 18th place – right in the middle. We’re not sure exactly how her rise to the top went, but it looks like it happened slowly and steadily. Christine didn’t have a KO until final table, when she took out Jim Reed at 5th place.
But she fought her way to heads-up against former Champion Jeff Rakestraw. Christine knocked out Jeff with a 6-9 off suit (much to Eddie Hardy’s excitement). Jeff later said he just wanted to make sure Christine and Blake got a Vegas honeymoon. Yeah right, Jeff.
So congratulations to Christine! Can’t wait to hear about your successes in Las Vegas!
Note from Daniel Stabler: Sorry Christine, that it took so long to get this post up. As I told you earlier, website problems due to hackers and general laziness and forgetfulness kept me from posting this earlier. Again, sorry. I hope you win another one – and this time it’ll be up ASAP.
