Some of the main hubs of poker also are the foremost sexualized cities in the US, name New Orleans then later metropolis. These cities are absolutely oozing with sex, and although this paper is not trying to form a moral argument decrying these wild cities’ lifestyles, much of these pictures have stuck to the sport of poker itself. Perhaps this development would not be therefore dangerous if it vie out equally between the 2 sexes, but all one sees is the portrayal of part disrobed girls advertising for poker sites. One only desires to log onto the net and look for “Women and Poker” to own a dozen girls in bikinis right away pop on the screen.

The front page of this website is a model of good taste and restraint. Many of the searches yielded interesting results, but this website was head and shoulders ahead. Upon opening the home page one finds an illustration of a scantily clad brown-haired vixen with a flower in her hair (no real women were harmed during the production of this design). The interesting part of this drawing is that she is placed inside of a huge Ace of Clubs. In the middle of the card, where the woman is located, lies a very large club, and the stem of said club just happens to terminate in the centre of the woman’s crotch. Although there is a possibility that this not-so-subtle innuendo was unintentional, we would not bet on it.
Advertisement on Hollywood for Women and Poker
Next on our list is the deliciously tasteful advertisement on Hollywood for their “Babes & Bounties” tournament. To begin with, the title itself should be enough to ruffle the feathers of most women poker players. Then, the image used on the page is of a woman in a bikini top with money in the background behind her. And finally, for those players who aren’t sold by the picture in the middle, the site claims that “12 of the sexiest poker hostesses in the game” will be present at the table. It’s a good thing too, because most serious poker players refuse to play in tournaments with any less than 8 sexy poker hostesses. Finally, jus to make sure that one can notice all the different features on the side, there is a picture of a woman on the left-hand side of the screen dressed in her rather unsupportive underwear lying down in front of a laptop with poker chips lying around her body. She is happily wearing a pair of flattering white high heeled shoes so that she can model at any moment during her poker game.
However, other chess players have turned their attention to poker since it not offers a mental challenge but also a shot at far greater financial returns.

He’s a 34 year old London based chess International Master who after joining Poker Stars a year ago has gained their prestigious Supernova Elite status.
