Reasons Why Men Chose to Skip the 2013 WSOP Ladies Event

WSOP Ladies Event 2013 426x300
The Ladies Event final table is currently playing out at the 2013 World Series of Poker and for the first time in years, this event did not include male participants. Earlier this year, WSOP officials announced that the event would "officially" be a $10,000 event with ladies receiving a $9,000 discount. Some pointed out that the WSOP was walking a legal tightrope offering the reduced rate but was not challenged prior to the event. Men could have participated if they wanted to, but they had to pay $10,000.
