What's the Deal? Women in Poker.

Dealt by Tim Bangs.

Women in poker.  That is quite the conundrum. I thought poker was supposed to be a man’s sport.  It’s supposed to be a time when I can scratch myself peacefully, smoke a cigar, and burp.

Now don’t get me wrong, I am all for equality.  My beef is not that women are playing poker.  In fact, given the choice, I’d much rather be looking at an attractive girl then some fat slob with sausage fingers wearing a Hawaiian shirt.   My problem with women is the fact that they are too hard to get a read on. 

You’d think that by now, I would have learned that when my girlfriend says that she is not mad at me, she really is.  Or when she asks me what I really think, that I’m really supposed to lie and just compliment her.   

But I haven’t.

So how am I going to be able to get a decent read on a woman at the card table? 

I have a better shot of taking over Richard Karn’s job as the host of the Family Feud.  Now those are some big shoes to fill.

One look at a woman across the table batting her eyes at me, telling me she has a 2-7 offsuit, and I will completely believe her (handing my stack over to her in the process).  It probably won’t be long before we do see the first woman win the WSOP main event, since women are making their presence felt in poker rooms across the country, taking large stacks from guys who just don’t understand them…like me. 

So women, don’t send the hate mail.  I wish you the best, just don’t sit down at my table.

What’s your take?  Do you have a harder time getting a read on women?  Share your comments below.

To quote from Annie Duke's "God Bless Men" article......
"Well there is an interesting thing that happens when you put a woman at a poker table-and all you men out there should be paying close attention to this: Some men become unhinged-they forget they are playing a ruthless game in which emotion should be separated from strategy-they forget that the gender of your opponent should make no difference in how you play the game.
And that is a good thing for all us girls."


I still think bass fishing is awesome.
