Amongst all the cheering and screaming that reminded us of a bunch of sorority girls reacting to the first few bars of “Come on Eileen” at a cheesy dance club, Lisa Hamilton, a woman, won the 2009 WSOP Ladies Event. This is Hamilton’s first cash in any major event. For the win, she banks $195,390. More importantly, Hamilton is kind of a babe. The 37 year-old from Hawaii proves something that 1/3 of the Entities Who Comprise Wicked Chops Poker learned years ago: chicks with Asian blood age well. The win also has other implications. With another attractive Asian on the scene, inevitably Daniel Negreanu or Barry Greenstein will end up with a new girlfriend. Don’t be surprised if Barry adds her to one of the 8 people he’s following on twitter (7 Asian chicks and Joe Sebok, that’s seriously awesome). So yeah, this one is good for pokerTM all around. Hamilton’s win is a good segue into another important topic: what females are the top 5 best looking and best tournament players on the circuit now? Give it a read here. Hindsight being the retrospective thing that it is, Maria Hoooooooooo!, Maya Antonius, and Christina Lindley all could’ve made the hot list as well. Or Jennifer Tilly and Michele Lewis if you’re into cougars. Lists are great like that. Debates arise. And you know what they say about opinions… Anyway, get full Ladies Event results here.
