    @Kevmath @WSOP any word about 1c?


    good question gags. maybe a few of the 1's will be 6 max. absurd indeed.

    day2 is a field from 2 different formats. i mean come on.....thats a sizable difference.

    less leg room and more coolers/bad beats wont be popular flights. you add that 10th seat and stupid shit increases exponentially.

  2. Obv its dependent on how many entrants. Id assume they will only play other days 10 handed if they absolutely have to.

    So OI with Cate Hall and her SJW mentality on twitter. I dont even follow her, yet she is on my timeline everyday. STFU all ready ffs.

    What kind of “sexism” are we talking about?

    In fact, let’s start at the far end of the necessary-interesting spectrum and talk terminology, because so many of the disagreements on this issue seem at bottom to be semantic and not substantive. When I say the poker community is “sexist,” I mean it fosters or tolerates environments in which a significant proportion of women feel unwelcome. Other definitions may be both defensible and compatible with ordinary usage, but this one has the benefit of being the most useful, in the sense of advancing the debate in a manner consistent with the shared goal of the participants and audience.

    lol this reeks of college freshman trying to sound smart.

    edit- lol it gets better. might as well copy and paste the whole thing.

    so what's your beef here? the poker world isn't a sexist environment?

    IMO, it's a huge problem that is just now finally getting some awareness, which is a great thing. it's a really difficult environment for women for a myriad of reasons, and the game needs more of them to grow.

    Cate Hall might be annoying at times, but she's a great ambassador for women poker players trying to make their way in a man's world. and FTR she's also extremely intelligent.

    If it makes you feel better, the 3 times i have played the main event... the most I ever had in any year was 38k.

    So even though you have lost 12k of your stack... you still have as much as I have ever had during that damn thing lol.

    no I'm not talking about women or poker, really. it just comes off as pretentious. smart people are great at being pretentious shits so that's not surprising.

    it's not like I have to choose one or the other. I cringe at douchebags at the table too. part of the reason I don't bother with poker anymore is because of the people I'm forced to spend time with.

    I didn't post to talk about feminism though. her writing is just too funny.

     

    That is a lovely goal doubtless shared by many within and without the poker community. But being that this is a trade publication for the poker industry and not an academic journal devoted to gender issues, the unifying goal that should anchor this debate is something less utopian: to get new players in the door.

    that's how people write when they're trying to prove something. imo of course. I can see why you thought I was talking about feminism but I really wasn't. good luck to her in changing the poker community.

    Not sure a pretentious Cate Hall is a good way to tackle the issue, especially when you are dealing with a vast majority of men with huge ego's in the poker community. It has gotten so out of hand that nobody, including herself, can even make a joke at this point.

    yeah im sure she a nice lady and all and kara was even going on about it a while back but what exactly can realistically change.

    everyone is offended by something these days and they seem to want to change people around them. hell i wish i could change people, id change her and everyone i know. thats the arrogance of mankind in a nutshell.

    In Colorado I would say female players make up about 40% of the players in 30/60 and is never an issue.
