You know when someone is semi-“new” to the poker scene and they have amazing run good because they have this confidence that just takes down pots? Well, that’s Ms. Persia Bonella. She is fearless, lucky and ready for wins so if you play with her, stay out of her way because she is not folding to any light bluffs any time soon.
Persia Bonella has had great results in the woman’s poker scene these past few years and her recent run-good continues at the 2015 Nevada State Ladies Poker Championships. She tell us… “My most recent accomplishment in Reno (Ladies International Poker Series) for the 2015 Nevada State Ladies Poker Championships, cashed in 4 out 5 tournaments played, including a package to Vegas during WSOP Ladies week, and a seat to the LIPS Grand Poker Championship Event. I have come back from being short stack in all 4 of the tournaments I cashed/won, including being down to 4 black (100) chips (when the ANTE was 300), and then climbed back up to finish in the money. Some players now call me “the come back kid.”
Persia has also sent me a great recap article link of the 2015 Nevada State Ladies Poker Championships by female poker legend Linda Johnson that talks about the Ladies International Poker Series, created by LIPS CEO Lupe Soto with executive director Angela Garcia, and Reno’s Regional Director Gina Trampusch, Kittie Aleman and Rachel Morris. Read more on the fifth annual Nevada State Ladies Poker Championship held at the Peppermill in Reno, March 25-29, 2015.
Here is a selfie I took of Persia and I in the park when she volunteered at a local Easter event for the community hosted by Real Estate Experts Mylyne and Associates. I met Persia through Mylyne at a party and like Mylyne Santos, Persia Bonella is a great person inside and out with a heart of gold. I am happy she is part of Vancouver Ladies poker scene.
Tell us about your 2014 WSOP LADIES RUN Story, I know that was a great example of not giving up ever in a poker tournament:
“I was riding high 2nd in chips ranking in Day 2. Then later on the day went card dead plus a few race beats to cripple me down to 12bb. Then 3-way all in action with my KK running into AA which I had covered and KJ called in BB as well which had me covered. Binked the case K on flop and I tripled up my way to final table of the Wsop ladies! Finished 6th place out of almost 800 runners!”
Want to get a hold of Persia Bonella? She is not part of Twitter pokerverse yet, but you can tweet me Sandra Wong @astrogurl and I will pass on the message 🙂
