New Zealander Sosia Jiang made history last night as she became the first female winner of The Hendon Championship title, taking down the first ever online edition of The Hendon Mob Championship. 379 entrants took to the virtual felt for Irish Open Online Event #6 on partypoker, creating a prize pool of €94,750.
Jiang, who sits 2nd on the New Zealand All Time Money List defeated Denmark’s #1 player on the GPI Player of the Year Rankings for 2019, Morten Mortensen. Jiang took down €18,381, the fourth largest prize awarded in the one-and-a-half-year history of The Championship, along with the coveted THMC Trophy.
Jiang was victorious in a notably tough field which included the likes of former WSOP Main Event Champion Martin Jacobson, reigning triple GPI Female POY champ and GPI #6 Kristen Bicknell, partypoker pro Patrick Leonard, GPI #4 Manig Loeser, 2019 Irish Poker Open Main Event winner Weiji Zheng and former Global Poker Award winner Dara O’Kearney.
