Thursday 24th March 2005
A new poker magazine is debuting that will cater to the ever-growing number of female poker players. Woman Poker Player magazine is a one-of-a-kind, lifestyle publication covering issues unique to women who enjoy the sport of poker.
The magazine's chief editor is professional poker player Barbara Enright, the only woman ever to make the final table at the World Series of Poker championship event. The editorial merges powerful experiences from poker-playing women and men around the globe, the mathematics and strategies of poker, tournament trip reports, profiles of popular female professional players, and will include lifestyle concerns such as, fashion and wellness.
“Women may have a basic advantage over their male counterparts. Psychologists tell us that women possess a sixth sense, and this instinctiveness can be a valuable asset at the poker table.” Says Enright. “They have proven they can hold their own against men, and this was dramatically underscored when three women won gold bracelets at last year’s World Series of Poker, although women represented less than five per cent of the participants.”
“Even so, women can be timid when they first enter a casino. This is where Woman Poker Player magazine comes in. We will be offering valuable pointers on general strategy, and strategy especially designed for women.”
April’s premiere issue includes profiles on professional women poker players, tips on playing with male players, and a glimpse into what to expect while playing your first live tournament.
The first issue of Woman Poker Player will be circulated free of charge. To receive your copy, visit http://www.womanpokerplayer.com.
