Lady Junkie said something in her blog that struck me as odd. She said that maybe her ranting would give readers a taste of what women had to put up with during the years of inequality. That assumes that women are considered equals at the poker table. I'm sorry to tell this to you ladies, but the years of inequality are still going on.

So we are down to the final table of Event #2 of the World Series of Poker Europe and it looks like the pros are continuing their dominance at the table. JP Kelly took down the Event #1 bracelet to technically make him yet another multi-bracelet winner for 2009. Kelly took the $1,500 PL Holdem event in Vegas this summer. Chris Ferguson finished in 15th.

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

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.

Poker Hall of Fame Thoughts

I listened to an interview earlier this evening where Barry Greenstein discussed the Poker Hall of Fame and who deserved to make it in. He stated that he would vote Phil Ivey and Mike Sexton into the Hall of Fame. Greenstein also stated his case for Sexton's induction. His case was great, but I thought I would give some of my thoughts on the nine candidates up for election: Barry Greenstein - Barry is a phenomenal player both in cash games and in tournaments.
