I started playing at the World Series of Poker in 2006. Back then, we were still pre-UIGEA and amateurs were practically dominating all of the fields. A few select pros would win events, but for the most part, the chirping from the pros was that “the fields are too massive” and “buy-ins needed to be raised. ” However, times were a changing.

Shaun Deeb WSOP Ladies Event Statement

2 13 June 2010 , By: Melissa Castello
