The other tournament I’m skipping today is the “Ladies” no-limit hold’em event.

Be that as it may, world-class women players like Kathy Liebert, Marsha Waggoner, Cyndy Violette, … Wendeen Eolis, Maria Stern and Maureen Feduniak, all of whom hold their own in open events, showed up at 11 a.m. this morning. At last count, over 600 women had put up the $1,000 buy-in, establishing yet another World Series of Poker record.
