Annie and Jeffrey 430x286
I just spent the last few minutes reading Annie Duke's speech that she gave at the 2011 Women In Poker Hall of Fame induction ceremony. I must say that I was thoroughly impressed by her words. Annie addressed a topic that some of us touched on a few weeks ago and that is the lack of female participation at the WSOP this year. Only 3% of the field was comprised of women.

Moneymaker Seidel 206x300
Erik Seidel has had an epic 2011. Since the beginning of the year, he has taken down two major high-roller events and the NBC National Heads-Up Championship to take over the all-time money list lead.
