According to Chat With Women.com, in a post called 'Women and Gambling', "The appeal of online gambling for female gamblers is easy to see, as it removes many of the intimidating barriers involved with sitting at a table of men when gambling at casinos in Las Vegas or other cities -- especially when learning new games such as craps, roulette, or poker.
Many new players are scared off by the fear of looking silly while learning the rules, with online gambling easing all those fears by allowing players to learn the rules and play at their own pace. It’s also possible to check online strategy guides and game tips as you play, which can be a huge help when learning blackjack basic strategy or poker rules."
Poker has been prime territory for a fresh crop of top female players emerging over the last few years, many getting their start online before taking the live poker tournament circuit by storm.
Vanessa Selbst is a prime example, she racked up nearly $5 million in lifetime earnings on the tournament circuit since 2006. Annette Obrestad is another female player who made a huge splash in 2007 when she won the World Series of Poker Europe tournament for a $2 million score. Her nearly $4 million in lifetime earnings puts her alongside Selbst near the top of the all-time women’s earnings list.
There is plenty of opportunity for other women thinking about taking up the game of poker. Could you be next? Why the heck not? You don't even have to wash your Poker face to get in the game. Poker and pajamas might just lead you to a pile of cash.
