Sonya Harrison Wins the Eastern Poker Tour March $10,000 Monthly Championship

Today was the last  Eastern Poker Tour Monthly Championship before the Season 28 30K Finals next Sunday at Foxwoods. 190 players came down to the VFW in Walpole to try and claim the 8 seats that were up for grabs.

Sonya Harrison (SMA) came out on top claiming the $2500 First Place prize. Harrison, a Norwood, Mass. resident has only been playing poker for two years. “I really enjoy playing poker” says Harrison. Sonya plays 5 days a week and this win is her 18th win.

“This is the most I’ve even won in a tournament!” She says that she was shocked and baffled because she feels that she’s not that good enough to win.

Sonya was the one to baffle and shock the Final Table. She was able to knock out 5 players which is very hard to do.

On the final hand when the blinds were 60,000/120,000, Mark moved all-in and Sonya called

Sonya – K♣ 4♠

Mark’s –  J♥ 6♣


She wants to thank her sisters Sue McCoy and Dot Murch and her boyfriend Steve Walsh for watching the live stream rooting her on. She also said that she had a dream 2 weeks ago about winning a $30 satellite and didn’t know what that meant until today.


Below are the results from today:
