Women Suck at Poker and So Does Doyle
Annette Obrestad apparently forgot to read the book How to Win Friends and Influence People. I ran across some articles regarding an interview that Annette Obrestad did with ESPN where she claimed that when playing women:
"It's easy money... I've always said that girls suck at poker. I say that because they do. Maybe they just aren't as competitive and don't try to learn from their mistakes"
Later when talking about Doyle Brunson, she insinuated that he had a big ego when stating
"Online players process information so much faster and don't let their egos get in the way of becoming a better player. No disrespect to Doyle, but I'd rather play him."
First, I think there are many female players that would line up to challenge her assumption that women players suck. Iâm sure Kathy Liebert, Vanessa Selbst, and others might just be happy to take her to the woodshed so to speak.
Take away her WSOP-E Main Event bracelet and what has Obrestad done in live poker? Her live resume does not scream live poker superstar, regardless of the hype.
Of course, good olâ Doyle might literally take her out to the woodshed to lay down a proper spanking, and not the fun type some of you pervs out there are thinking.
Now, I will admit that Doyle is beginning to show the signs of age catching up to him, but until Obrestad proves she is capable of recreating past successes, she might want to hold off on bashing other players.
