With a last name that means “warrior”, Maria Del Mar Guerrero certainly put her fighting skills to good use over the weekend to take down the epic Super Stack Spain event at Casino Torrequebrada near Malaga.
Maria won €9,660 at the first Super Stack Spain of 2017 after beating a giant field of 445 entries. The total prize pool was €64,080 with 45 players making the money.
Among those who took part was Super Stack-sponsored November Niner Fernando Pons. Known as “Nando” to his friends, Pons finished ninth out of 6,737 players in the WSOP 2016 Main Event, netting $1 million after qualifying online in a €30 satellite.
Maria, a recreational player, is only the second woman ever to win a Super Stack event; the first was Catherine Ivgi who won Super Stack UK in 2015 for £14,200. The Super Stack team said: "Maria is a lovely lady and we're very happy for her. After several years and over 100 tournaments, it’s nice to have another lady win!!"
