Glum Girl Gromenkova Killing the Ladies Event

Glum Girl Svetlana Gromenkova, a woman, seen above in various stages of glumness, is destroying the field right now in the Ladies No-Limit Hold'em World Championship at the 2008 WSOP. With 21 players left, Glum Girl is stacked at 320,000, with her nearest competitor, Christine Priday, a woman, stacked at 180,000.

Patty Till, a woman, who just attended the WSOP Academy Ladies Event, is in third right now with 148,000. Till will be looking to do what Sally Ann Boyer did last year -- go from poker camp to poker champ in a matter of days.

Of note, Hoa Nguyen, a woman, is still in and still not a man, despite what the NY Times Freakonomics Blog reported today. Understandable mistake considering the WSOP site links to this Hoa Nguyen, a man, who finished 34th in the WSOP Main Event last year.

UPDATE: Steven Levitt just updated his Freakonomics blog with an addendum and also links to the old Tilt Boys photos of Rafe Furst and Phil Gordon dressed as chicks. Check it out here.
