A Woman Does Not Win WPT World Poker Finals

Worldpokersmallcopy_2Kathy Liebert and Mimi Tran--both women--failed to capture the WPT World Poker Finals title. That honor instead goes to renowned chauvinist* Nenad Medic, who banked $1,717,194 for the win.

Despite some good-natured ribbing we occasionally engage in by pointing out the track record of women poker players in major tournaments, we here at Wicked Chops Poker were genuinely bummed that Kathy Liebert didn't pull this one through. She's as tough as they come, and doesn't get nearly the same amount of face time and credit that she deserves, and that some other female pros get, due to a little thing we like to call "sex appeal." Well, we don't call it "sex appeal" so much as it calls us.

Not to say that we didn't want Mimi Tran to win either, but the name "Mimi Tran" reminds us too much of the word "transexual," and there's some bad memories of transexual experiences in our collective past that we just don't care to revisit. Not that we didn't bring these bad experiences on ourselves. You know what they say, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me 147 times, shame on me."
