The Last Woman!This was published 19-07-2009
So, it happened a few days ago. The last woman was eliminated from this years event. *Gasp* *Shock!* *Horror!*
Okay, maybe that’s a bit much, but I’m not really sure why it’s a huge deal? When women make up a whopping 3% of the field, outlining how women do at a tourney like this is fairly silly in my mind. It’s like breaking it down by race, orcountry or any other arbitrary measure. And I’ve never seen “last Italian eliminated from WSOP today! And just to round out my news articles, the biggest cash an Italian has ever made at the WSOP Is 140,333 in 2003″. It’s an archaic thing to write about.
There are some amazing female poker players out there, and here is a list of female WSOP bracelet winners over the years….
