“I don’t think it’s hit me yet,” Shulman told Card Player Magazine.  She is the wife of Card Player owner Barry Shulman. “I feel so humbled by the whole experience that I don’t even know what to think. I have to process this for a little [while].”

With her victory, Shulman becomes the first woman to win a mixed-gender WSOP event since Vanessa Selbst in 2008.

Shulman won $603,713 for her first place victory while Phillips pocketed $372,895 as the runner up.

David Bakes Baker won Event #32: H.O.R.S.E. with Phil Hellmuth nearly closing in on that lucky number 13 WSOP bracelet, finishing instead in 4th place. 

Carter Phillips has his second World Series of Poker bracelet after winning the  $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em.  Phillips managed to beat 2009 Main Event winner Joe Cada heads up.  Cada would have become the first Main Event champion in the post-Moneymaker era to win a follow-up bracelet had he held on to beat Phillips.

Phillips earned $664,130 for the victory. 

Elsewhere, Timothy Adams of Canada went on to win Event #28: No-Limit Hold'em / Four Handed.
