Congratulations to Ritta Dankha, the 2007 Chicago No-Limit Texas Holdem Grand Champion! Ritta survived a field of the highest-rated of over 250 players to claim the title. According to the rules of the tournament every player received a full re-entry when they busted out, equal to the then-average-stack at the table.... effectively, Ritta had to beat every player twice to win it all.

After veteran Jennifer Lewkowicz was knocked out in 3rd place Ritta was heads-up against Fabian Ramos for over an hour and a half before she found the hand she was looking for to put the title away.

On the open table for new incoming players, it came down to a three-way finish between Diane Banhidi, Brian Beatty, and Susan Burgess. Eventually it was Burgess vs. Beatty heads up for the Open Championship title. Susan emerged the winner to make it 2-0 for the ladies!

For the complete order of finish, and pictures of the tournament, please visit Chicago Poker News at:

Congratulations to all competitors that made this such a great event!

The Final event of the 2007 No-Limit Series is the No-Limit HELO-5 tournament, to be held in August.
