its Nevada law, they cant bar someone for gender.Interesting article, but why are men even allowed into Ladies' events? One could argue "why are ladies allowed in Men's events? [but this seems like most every event since poker is currently male-dominated]
However, I feel like that simplistic approach is wrong. Imagine if there was something like a poker "little league" with poker events for children, but then some middle-aged dude shows up to participate...wouldn't everyone suggest that they shouldn't be eligible?
I kind of like the idea of specific events to spread the game (especially charity events like this one) and right now, there are so many more men in poker than women (for whatever reason, but I predict it is mostly for cultural reasoning) that I think it makes sense to feature women-only events.
I don't even think it is (or should be) about gender, but rather creative ways to expand the popularity of the game and finding ways to make the community more friendly and good for poker. Just my opinion...
some men are too stupid to understand that they have accomplished nothing.
yes old men could join your hypothetical game of children gambling lol.
and heavy-weight fighters should be able to join in to fight lightweight fighters,
and young men join the senior games, etc.
as Debi explained it is not about anything but women getting to play against women so they can be comfortable learning poker and the live setting. giving them the confidence to join regular games, hence the next big boom in poker.
exactly as you stated it should be.
