Jamie Gold's Mom and Robert Varkonyi's Wife Doing Well at WPT Ladies Event

Olga varkonyi pokerWhen we first heard that the debut WPT Ladies Tour event was underway at the Borgata in Atlantic Shitty we figured it involved a bunch of ladies sitting around wearing pink hats, giggling at the table, hugging each other and generally getting along like it was a Pampered Chef party or recipe swap shindig, if chicks do stuff like that, and we assume they do, rather than a serious poker tournament.

And then we thought, it's a new year and we should start things off fresh with no preconceived stereotypes about women and poker. We even remembered how the world didn't come to an end after Annette Obrestad, a woman, won the inaugural WSOP Europe Main Event last year.

And then we watched Kimberly Lansing's video blog on the WPT Ladies event and remembered that we are ridiculously goodlooking, which has nothing to do with the fact that we were right about the ladies at the WPT Ladies Tour event and everything to do with the mirror-like glare coming off the computer monitor right now.

As Kimberly Lansing and the headline above report, Robert Varkonyi's wife Olga (above right) and Jamie Gold's mom Jane are among the ladies still left in the $300 buy-in tournament. For up-to-date info on the tournament, go here.
