Women and poker

“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: “Why Aren't There More Women Poker Stars?” It’s a pretty interesting question to be sure, but I must refute some statements in the blog. *“A woman hasn't been at a main event final table since Barbara Enright in 2005”* Maybe you forgot about Annette Obrestad who won the WSOP-E in 2007? *“When I play against a good woman poker player … I don't pay much attention to their game“* Yeah, see that’s a guys’ problem. *“I believe with just a little coaching I could even turn a woman poker player into a great player”* Sure, with you as a coach even a woman could learn poker.

Michele Lewis *Why is poker so much fun? ** * *Who is the best poker pro according to you? * *Phil Hellmuth handles large Hold'em fields better than a car** * *Between you and Phil Hellmuth, heads-up, seriously who would win? * Michele-Lewis-Phil-Hellmuth. 450 *Is poker a good endeavor for women to go into? If so, in what ways? * *Why are there so few women in pro poker? * *As a mother, would you encourage your children to play poker? * *Do you think a man would get that question? * *Do you have any tips to all our aspiring poker sisters out there?* Dan Harrington's books are an excellent start for learning the math but read as many books as possible. Don't focus on one book's style of play, take in everything and then develop a style that works for you. Don't believe everything you see on television.

Each time a respected chess player makes a run in poker, it's good for poker. Some of chess' reputation spills over to the less respected game of poker. Each time a woman makes a run in poker, it's good for her fellow sisters. A little of the winners' reputation spills over to the less respected gender.
