Women are shining at 2010 WSOP Main Event
Despite only constituting 3% of the field –216 out of 7,391—female poker players are having a very strong showing at the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event thus far. Through 2 full days of play there are a number of top female poker pros who have put themselves in great position to make a deep run in the tournament.
Vanessa Selbst has the largest stack of any of the female poker players with 265,000 chips; just slightly behind Selbst is JJ Liu with 240,000. Also in the mix are Amanda Baker with 203,000, Karina Jett with 175,000, Annie Duke with 176,000, Sandra Naujoks with 153,000, and Vanessa Rousso with 140,000. With the chip-leader, David Assouline, holding a 387,000 chip stack all of these women are within striking distance, and have an excellent opportunity to make some waves in the Main Event.
Even though the 2010 WSOP had a number of great showings by women poker players they failed to capture an open title and the lasting memory will likely be the controversy that surrounded the 2010 Ladies-Only tournament, or the chiding comments made by Annette Obrestad who told ESPN the Magazine that “Girls suck at poker.”
