Team Celeb - Proves A Real Hit With The Ladies...
Poker is one of the fastest growing recreational hobbies among women
worldwide and, if Team CelebPoker is anything to go by, they can play
a bit aswell!!
Recently released statistics suggest that women are, comfortably, the
largest growing demographic in poker making up 35% of the global
Attracted to this beautiful game through blanket television coverage,
aggressive marketing techniques and internet accessibility, an
increasing number of women are going 'head to head' with the opposite
sex on the poker felt... and coming out on top!!
CelebPoker is experiencing this boom first-hand with a huge amount of
female player's signing up, and competing fiercely, for a coveted
place in their exclusive Team CelebPoker. Team CelebPoker provides the
unique opportunity for ANY CelebPoker player to represent CelebPoker
at a major European poker tournament.
Linda Donovan, CelebPoker Room Manager, thinks it's great that both
sexes are battling it to win a coveted place on the Team:
"At CelebPoker we are welcoming an unprecedented number of female
players and actively encouraging more and more to get involved. Poker
is an entertaining, exciting and engaging pastime. Team CelebPoker has
become a favourite for many female players from all over the world".
Players like Annie Duke, Kathy Liebert, Liz Lieu, Jennifer Harmon and
Cyndy Violette have blazed the trail and inspired women to get
involved on the poker scene. They have helped disprove the myth that
poker is a man's domain by consistently beating many of the top male
The growing in popularity amongst the female demographic is not, by
any means, confined to live games either. Although the exact
percentage of women playing online is difficult to judge, the figure
is believed to be as high as 40%. Eventually, experts predict that the
ratio of women to men playing poker will level out at 50:50 or maybe
even tip slightly towards women.
Ms. Donovan continued:
"If you walk into your local casino, you'll find mostly guys seated at
the poker table. That's a fact!! And, for a lot of women, that can be
a very intimidating. But playing poker online is a very different
story... the general barriers to entry are so low which really appeals
to women. We are delighted with the number of female players that are
in the running for Team CelebPoker".
The success of women in this promotion, whilst exciting, is not wholly
unexpected. Female players are known for being extremely intuitive and
very patient at the tables. They also tend to be more accurate in
reading people, monitoring and reacting effectively to situations and
being a little bit devious when required!! Statistics also show that
they are generally far more careful with their actions and bet
Historically, women have been viewed as a weak link at a poker table
but with more females playing poker online, and playing it
successfully, this seems sure to become a thing of the past. Indeed,
it would seem a good bet that a female will be representing Team
CelebPoker at a major European Live Event in the very near future...
and, no doubt, turning a few heads for all the right reasons in the
