POKERNEWS: Maria Ho Close Again, But "Nothing Deserved" in Poker
When glancing over the lineup for the final table of Event #42: $3,000 Shootout No-Limit Hold'em, one story stuck out: would Stephen Chidwick finally win his long-awaited bracelet at the World Series of Poker?
However, there was another player at the final table who can almost match Chidwick's résumé of WSOP accomplishments in terms of cashes and monies won, but has also yet to grasp WSOP gold. Like Chidwick, who finished 10th in the shootout, Maria Ho fell short once again, busting in fourth for $87,487.
Despite another close call, the ever-cheery Ho wasn't wallowing in any self-pity. Far from it, she displayed her trademark smile in doing a quick video shoutout for a different media outlet before agreeing to a quick interview with PokerNews.
"I'm just glad to be back at a final table at the World Series again," she said. "But also, you always have high hopes that it's gonna be the one."
