WOMEN in Online Poker
Now days People are talking about “Women Empowerment”, Women are in every field, walking equally with the Men. Either it be in Movies, Education or Crime, than why not the Games?
Whether it is Cricket, or Football, or any Outdoor games, Women have started playing all the games. If they can easily play the outdoor games, than why stay behind in indoor games, and since we have started talking about indoor games, the first thing that comes to our mind now is the game of “Poker”. Poker game which is played in casinos very enthusiastically, betting and shouting every then and now. You might have seen women playing poker games in casinos, betting hard, and playing equally with men, and winning as well. If they can play the game in casinos, then for sure they would love the online games.
Yes, absolutely they love playing poker games online, because it’s the place where they can be with their families, and they could play it without any tension of house-hold chores. Atleast every time they would not get a phone call from their homes asking “It’s already late, when you would be getting home?”
People usually behave like a stereotype, when they think about Women playing poker games that to in online mode, because they think Women can’t easily operate computer. But let me tell one thing, if we see now days, more and more women are entering to the IT industry, if they are not good in computer, then why are they hired as Developers, or Analyst?
There might be a slim number of Women playing the games as compared to Men, but it is still believed, that Women players are far better than half of the Men players in a team.
There are lots of Women Poker Player, whom the whole world knows, they are:
1. Vanessa Selbst – Bagged over more than $9 million in tournament matches.
2. Jennifer Harman - Jennifer Harman was the first female player to win two WSOP gold bracelets: the No Limit Deuce to Seven Lowball event in 2000 and the $5,000 Limit Hold'em event in 2002.

The only reason, I had mentioned those names because to prove one point, that if those ladies can play and win the game in Casinos, beating their fellow Male opponents, then for sure they can easily play the games online to beat any one, not only those notable players, but also the normal novice Women players can also play the online games quite easily, beating their fellow opponents.
