Is poker a man’s game?

Poker Was Strictly A “Man’s Game” For Many Years in Greece. Poker started as a male-dominated activity, and during the early days of the game, it was played almost exclusively by men. Rare female players to hit the felt were going against the social norms of the period. But surely, we can name poker a “male” sport, not because women are not able to play but because more men take part to tournaments and poker games.

Poker was a boy’s game and girls, even if they tolerated it, were usually not welcome. Will their presence disrupt the usual erection, and can we only guess that it could make men feel uncomfortable or uncomfortable at that moment?

Of course, things have changed a lot over the decades, and we no longer live in the Wild West, but the fact remains that the game started in the wrong way for the integration of women.

So, poker in Greece has a big fan club but according to a survey, the fans of this game are mostly men. More men than women play poker, though the game places both genders at the same tables. Of all the top poker tournaments played around the world, perhaps the one that’s most sought after is the World Series of Poker.

But Is poker a sport or a game? And how this definition affects the members of this game?

Poker is a sport because it is played for entertainment, is competitive, and almost always requires both physical and mental prowess in order to consistently play and win at the highest level. Such might explain why women may drop out earlier from tournaments than men: they are less prone to taking risks in a game where big wins require bold moves. It might also explain why women do not continue playing poker regularly once they’ve started: the unpredictability of the game is not enjoyable to them. This is probably one of the biggest reasons why women even today tend to stay away from poker and find different hobbies to enjoy.

As exciting as the game is, for some, not all the extra abuse that comes with playing in a live environment is worth it.

This is confirmed by the fact that a woman has never won the World Poker Tour. In fact, only one woman has ever made the final table, when Barbara Enright did it in 1995. From the other side, girls are good at poker. Although female participation is low, this does not mean that there are not enough women who regularly play this game with great success. There are so many talented and successful female poker players: from the States, there’s Vanessa Selbst, Kathy Liebert, Annie Duke, Vanessa Rousso and Jennifer Harman, to name just five.
