Synonyms of "Championship" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre After she had won the amateur championship,she turned professional e After she won the amateur championship,she turned professional ?
A: When including had before the verb, you're changing the sentence from a regular past tense to a perfect past tense.

To explain this I'll use an example:

"I had called James, as soon as he got home." This is the past perfect tense of the sentence. The regular past tense would be something like " I called James today." That is if it happened today. "I called James yesterday.", if it happened yesterday.

When we're talking of using the past perfect tense, we're talking of an event that happened in the past which took place before a more recent event that also happened in the past. (If you talk about the events of your morning the day before and then the events that happened in the evening before today, the events that happened in the evening are more recent while still being talked about in past tense.)

You can forgo using the past perfect tense entirely when you are not talking about two things that took place in the past, one after the other. E.g. "I drove to work yesterday."

In the context of your example, both events (The amateur championship tournament, and the lady turning professional are events that took place in the past. One of them happened before the other).

In the first sentence, you are using the past perfect tense. In the second sentence, you are using the regular past tense.
