annie duke NBC head up 2010
Since we are entering the final week of 2010, it is time for me to be a lemming and do my year in review posts like every other poker blogger and writer in the poker media.  However, you all know I love to put my own opinion on this, so over the next couple of days, I will give you MY Top 10 Poker Moments of 2010. *#10 - Annie Duke Wins NBC National Heads-Up Championship* * * **** * * Annie Duke does not play the same schedule as many other pros due to her family.   As such, she really has to try and take advantage of the live events she plays in.

2010 Women in Poker Hall of Fame Class Announced

Jennifer Harman1
The Women in Poker Hall of Fame announced their 2010 class last week and, as I figured, my two picks were inducted into the Hall along with someone else I never heard of. Jennifer Harman was to me an obvious choice due to the fact that she is clearly the best all around female player on the planet. She is the only woman to consistently play at the high limits of Bobby's Room year in and year out and is the only woman in history to have 2 open WSOP bracelets. Kathy Liebert is the all-time women's money winner and clearly the best female NL Holdem tournament player on the planet.

Phil Hellmuth is a cash game genius, T. J. Clouiter wins consistently at craps, and Kathy Liebert is the top pro on Full Tilt Poker.   After my last few days of playing online, I am convinced that the prior statements are indeed true as I think I have officially moved into bizarro world.

I figured that I would make a top 10 female list as well, but containing the top 10 women that can actually play poker as opposed to the top 10 that guys wish they could play with. (Stats pulled from Hendon Mob. ) #10 - Barbara Enright - $1. 344 Million I personally know Barbara and can tell you she is one of the classiest ladies you will ever play with at the tables.
