Top 10 Women in Poker

16 February 2010 , By: compncards
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.

Lady Junkie said that she is in favor of positive discrimination when it comes to poker tournaments. Positive discrimination? Why? Poker is not Affirmative Action. Poker is supposed to be open to all players, regardless of race, color, creed, etc. Why does there need to be positive discrimination? Hasn't there been enough AA in this country? In so many businesses, Affirmative Action has resulted in the "token minority.

A Man Wins a Women's Poker Event - Cue Up the Firing Squad

1 19 September 2009 , By: compncards
A man had won a women's poker tournament! The end of the world is nigh! I swear, if you were to read some of the news stories about this, you would think that the crime of the century had occurred. Starting with PokerNews. com that said that Abraham Korotki has lost his self respect after winning to the dozens of other media outlets that are making this out to be something larger than life, it seems that people want to really make an example out of this guy. Why? Let me ask something of all the women out there? How many of you would be offended if we started holding a "men only" poker tournament? I bet a good portion would start screaming sexism.
