A Woman Will Not Win the WSOP ME This Year Either

We give up.

No other poker outlet has been a bigger proponent of the ability of female poker players than Wicked Chops Poker.

Anniehasissues2_2We are like the poker equivalent of the super-supportive best friend of the hot chick that doesn‚Äôt ever get to bang her. We’re always stroking the ladies‚Äô egos, telling them how good they are, how nice they smell, what a good read they made, and offering a shoulder to cry on when they bust out. Yet they never reciprocate our kindness by winning a tournament.

So we ask: when will a woman win the WSOP ME? Heck, when will one make a damn final table? Or win a bracelet? Or a WPT event? Or play in the Big Game? Or just earn the respect of one single male peer? When will this happen? We’re beginning to think the answer is “never.”

Yesterday, the final two women were eliminated from WSOP contention: Annie Duke, a woman, and Sabyl Cohen, a woman. So yet again, no woman will win a WSOP event. Not even the Woman’s Only tourney.

We’d go ahead and say, “Wait till next year,” but by now, we know better. It’ll never happen.

Thanks for nothing, women.

Thanks for nothing.

Editor’s Note: Wicked Chops Poker loves women and we know they’re great poker players and that one woman even plays in the Big Game. Collectively they just need to get off the schnide and do well in the Main Event already.

    A woman did win a bracelet this year. Clare Miller won the Seniors Event. While it wasn’t technically an “open” event, it wasn’t the Ladies-only event.
    Statistically, the over-under was for one woman to finish in the top 33 of the Main Event. They missed. :(

    We here at Wicked Chops Poker do not believe in “Senior” only or “Woman” only events, thus having disavowed that concept, cannot accept this so-called Clare Miller as a bracelet winner.
