The 2019 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Event #19: $1,500 NLH Millionaire Maker attracted 8,809 entries, and one player that made a deep run was 888poker Ambassador Ana Marquez, who finished in 10th place for $95,720.

It marked the third-largest score of Marquez’s career, behind the $320,189 she won after taking down the 2013 Hollywood Poker Open Championship Event and $155,000 for placing 10th in the 2011 PCA.

We took a look back at her journey in the "Milly" Maker and picked out some highlights from her deep run. Check it out.

Finding the Ladies on Day 2

After advancing from Day 1a with a healthy stack of 119,8000, Marquez was one of 2,268 players returning for Day 2 action. It was in Level 17 (3,000/6,000/6,000) that Marquez moved all-in under the gun for 90,000 and the player in the cutoff called to put her at risk.

Marquez: Q♥Q♠

Opponent: 10♣10♥

Marquez got it in good and was looking to dodge a ten, which is precisely what she did as the board ran out a safe 7♦5♦2♣6♥8♦.

Marquez went on to bag 372,000 on Day 2, which placed her 234th out of 309 remaining players. It was also on Day 2 of the tournament that Marquez did a video interview with PokerNews.

Doubling on Day 3

On Day 3 of the tournament, Marquez played a crucial pot in Level 29 (50,000/100,000/100,000) against bracelet winner Anthony Spinella. It happened when Marquez shoved the button for 880,000 holding the A♠K♠, and Spinella looked her up from the small blind with the A♦7♣.

The board ran out 4♠J♦6♠3♠4♦ and Marquez improved to a spade flush to double to nearly 2 million.

Marquez was one of 34 players to make it through Day 3, though her 3.48 million stack put her in 28th place.

Day 4 Action

Early on Day 4 in Level 32 (100,000/200,000/200,000), Marquez raised to 400,000 under the gun holding the K♥K♣ and WSOP bracelet winner Ryan Leng moved all-in for 4.05 million with the A♠Q♠. Marquez called off for 3.48 million and took a commanding lead when the K♠Q♥3♦ flop gave her top set. The 5♣ turn locked up the hand and she shipped the double after the meaningless 10♣ was run out on the river.

The boost allowed Marquez to run even deeper, but unfortunately, she fell one spot shy of making her third WSOP final table after finishing sixth last year in Event #28: $3,000 NLH 6-Handed for $67,116 and second in the 2012 WSOP Europe Event #6: €1,650 PLO 6-Handed for €51,443.

Her demise came in Level 37 (300,000/600,000/600,000) when action folded to Bob Shao on the button, and he raised to 1.2 million. Marquez then moved all-in from the big and Shao snap-called.

Shao: A♠Q♥

Marquez: A♥J♠

Marquez was dominated, and the Q♦8♠5♣ flop left her looking to go runner-runner. The 5♠ turn took away any chance of that happening, and Marquez officially exited in 10th place after the 9♣ was run out on the river.

While it wasn’t the result she’d hoped, there are still plenty of opportunities for Marquez and the other 888poker Ambassadors and qualifiers to compete for a World Series bracelet.
