Praise to the women poker players

Praise to the women poker players

Should children be called the flowers and men are considered children (bigger ones but still), women are the most tolerated and resistant gardeners. They feed the roots, wash the buds and cut dry leaves. In poker women are equal to men, but they always play special role at the table.

Hendon Mob database has data of approximately 9,000 who have been ITM at least once in live tournaments. This is just 2.6% of total number of players of male sex. Relatively small number.

There are even fewer female pros – several times fewer. Stats try to persuade us that poker is not for women. But we can see women in tournaments all the time and sometimes even at the cash tables. Feelings of being raised by the opponent that beautiful are quite opposite to those of being raised by the bearded man.

Well, there is just one conclusion – there is not many women in poker. So we must save them as last pieces of your bankroll.

Meet the maniac who lost $500k in $250k Aria Cash Game
Meet the maniac who lost $500k in $250k Aria Cash Game

Last summer Aria held big cash game with many famous “whales” and the toughest pros participating. The person who draws maximum attention with his entertaining non-standard and incredibly loose game was an Australian Matt Kirk, who, by his own words, was just warming up before the real game.

It is quite hard to discreet name of the top online and live regulars. Sooner or later hype grows that big, the personality of this or that pro becomes practically public.

Almost nothing was available on the Australian Matt Kirk. His style reminded us of the one of Viktor Bloom or Ilari Sahamies. Fist name of famous live players that come to mind as an example is young David “Viffer” Peat.

Kirk is 28 and unlike many he never played online. He visited casino at the age of 18 for the fist time and soon joined under-the-table games in Australia.

“My usual stakes I play at are much higher,” said Matt (Aria stakes were $400/$800/$200+).

Aussie Millions 2015, episode 3: Phil, that's the boy!

The end of the Australian poker celebration favored us with a sensation. Phil Ivey won $250,000 Challenge for the third time for four years! Just fancy that! How it is possible – let’s try figuring that out.

Richard Yong’s victory at $100,000 Challenge (regular of the super big cash games in Macau) and local regular Manny Stavropoulos’ excellent performance at Main pale beside new Phil Ivey’s achievement.

Phil is cool – it’s a fact. But the degree of his awesomeness can be understood from performances like these.

Aussie Millions 2015, episode 2: Who is this young man?

An Australian player Alexander Trevallion won $25,000 Challenge, has entered $100,000 Challenge finals and is at the top of the Day 1c of the Main event.  And he hasn’t really achieved anything extraordinary playing both online and offline.

The first Aussie Millions 2015 side events have ended, and it’s time for the best trump-card. Right now a 3rd Day of the Main event is taking place at the Crown casino, Melbourne.

But we’ll have the time to talk about it. And for now – meet the high rollers.
