“Lock women in a house for 30 days”
A few comments on a blog by The Razz Challenge about women and poker.
The blog tries to answer the following question: âWhy Aren't There More Women Poker Stars?â Itâs a pretty interesting question to be sure, but I must refute some statements in the blog.
âA woman hasn't been at a main event final table since Barbara Enright in 2005â
Maybe you forgot about Annette Obrestad who won the WSOP-E in 2007?
âWhen I play against a good woman poker player â¦ I don't pay much attention to their gameâ
Yeah, see thatâs a guysâ problem.
âI believe with just a little coaching I could even turn a woman poker player into a great playerâ
Sure, with you as a coach even a woman could learn poker.
âMaybe the next great poker TV show should be one where you get a dozen aspiring women poker players, and they get taught how to play at the highest levels. Maybe you lock them in a house for 30 days, and an audience gets to vote them off one by one.â
Actually, thatâs a pretty good idea. I like it. =)
