Tatiana Barausova 6th in Macau Millions – Natasha Barbour Women’s Event Champion


The 2016 edition of Macau Millions attracted a huge field over three starting flights. 2,343 entries ponied up HK$3,000 to play the event, which created a massive prize pool of HK$6.1 million – with HK$811,000 (US$104,000) reserved for the winner plus a HK$100,000 (US$12,800) entry into the 2016 ACOP Main Event.

On Day 3 and down to the nine-handed final table Tatiana Barausova had a shot at the title, but a miss-timed bluff versus Guancheng Wu left the Russian pro short, and she was eliminated shortly after in 6th place for HK$185,000 (US$23,839). Quan Zhou from China wound up winning the event.

On the other side of the globe Natasha Barbour went all the way in the $600 Women’s Event at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. The event attracted 51 runners, and Barbour defeated Sabina Hiatullah heads up for the title and the $8,340 up top. Hiatullah took home $6,040 for her runner-up finish. After the win a happy Natasha Barbour took to twitter, declaring she “broke the streak”:

Congrats to Barbour on her win and to Barausova on an amazing run.
