Erika Moutinho was the last woman standing in the 2011 WSOP Main Event, finishing in 28th place for $242k. She was taught to play by her boyfriend, David Sands, who went out one spot worse in 29th place for the same $242k. That was the deepest a serious poker couple had gone collectively.
They had been together for roughly six years and David decided it was time to cement their relationship. He proposed over the weekend.
