Pamela Wilson is stronger than you.
The Wisconsin native is not only the very first PPC Poker Tour Main Event winner for any event held in her home Badger State, but she’s also a breast cancer survivor. She was in the middle of her battle with Stage 2 invasive breast cancer when she took down the Ho-Chunk wisconsin Dells event in 2015, which earned her $17,902 plus a $5,000 Aruba PPC package. Since then, she cashed a WSOP Circuit event in Las Vegas, and her husband Monty Schmidt also added a PPC Main Event win to his resume earlier this year in Kansas City.
Both Wilson and Schmidt are here again battling in Aruba. Wilson is one of the remaining players in Event 2, and she has one of the biggest stacks left in the tournament with around 80,000.
