WPA POY Spotlight – Lakisha Slaughter

Lakisha Slaughter really enjoyed the poker series offered by WPTDeepStacks bestbet Jacksonville! She took down the Ladies Event after playing heads up with her friend & fellow Poker Pro, Chris Read, on bestbetlive. She then went on to finish 45th in the Main Event. Congratulations, Lakisha!

Living in Fairburn, Georgia, her home casino is 3 hours away (Cherokee, NC) where she earned a WSOP Circuit ring and her largest five figure score: VIEW HERE


She has played poker for a living the past 12 years and when not in tournaments, her game of choice is PLO cash. Married to a Poker Dealer with (7) children, it’s safe to say she has a large support system!

Lakisha fell in love with the game when she was invited to play in a .50/$1.00 private cash game as manager of an Outback Steakhouse. She cleaned out the house winning $300, then $400, and never looked back.

“I really love the praise bestbet gives to tournament players who have fought through a tough field to make the final table. The live streaming, the complimentary drinks, are all motivation to get there. Bestbet is hands down one of my favorite casinos!”

Lakisha Slaughter 1st Place $4,838. 59 entries, Prize Pool $11,800. WPTDeepStacks bestbet Jacksonville, Florida; Tournament Director: Jesse Hollander; $240 No Limit Hold’em – Ladies Event #7.
