The Tiltboys Invade the WPT Ladies Championship at the Bellagio
I first heard mention of this last night down at the Club. Rumor was 6 or 7 men but I found out on one of the original Tiltboys Blogs it was the Fab 4 of Perry Friedman, Rafe Furst, Bruce Hayek and TiltDad.
I've played my share of WOE (Women Only Events)including the Ladies WSOP and Foxwoods (2X) and the Ladies Event at the Orleans Poker Classic. Frankly,I prefer mixed fields as I'm definitely a guys girl. I personally like being one of the only women at the tables. I certainly like being the only woman at the final table.
I am not going to comment on whether or not this was downright dastardly and a thumb to the nose to women poker players in general. Part of me thinks it was done tongue and cheek and I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall listening to these guys planning their outfits and grand entrance.
None of the "gals" made the TV table. I did hear thru the grapevine that one women who bubbled quibbled that she paid $1500 only to be busted out by a man.
