September 9, 2008 - Not that you would be able to tell anyways, but if you haven't been reading up on all the gaming stats and surveys, there are certainly more men who gamble online than women. Don't ask me how much - but I know that men make up the majority. Of course, if you look at individual sectors of the online gambling industry, such as bingo and slots, women make up the majority there. Hey, and I've got no problem with women making up the majority, if you know what I mean.

And I definitely got no problem with the new women's poker podcast, aptly named WomensPokerYak.net.  Hosted by Dianna Donofrio, WomensPokerYak was just recently launched near the beginning of August '08, resembling that of a blog (fitting for podcasts). In fact, I think the site is a WordPress template.

Not only indicative of a growing number of women online poker players, which is the one sector of the online gambling industry where men far outnumber the women, WomensPokerYak also represents a formidable land-based poker community. Besides the fact there are several outstanding women poker players who regularly participate and finish on the leader boards of the WSOP, WPT and other high profile poker circuits, there are also separate Ladies Championship tournaments (like the WPT Women's Championship) with some outstanding professional action to boot (I can't believe I just said "to boot").

Anyways, I'm looking forward to seeing future podcasts here - or should I say Yak-casts. So far, Donofrio has interviewed such poker peeps as WSOP Tournament Director, Todd Daily, hottie Evelyn Ng, the sharp Nancy Todd Tyner and less known folk like Debbie Burkhead, who nonetheless have accomplished more success playing poker than most of us (me for sure!).

In other poker news (this is the poker blog after all), the Poker Stars 2008 World Championship of Poker is fully underway. Event 6 was the most recent to unfold, bringing in nearly a $3.7 million prize pool. The two top finishers (a Russian and an American) took each other on for two hours of heads-up play, with the American prevailing and bagging $452,086 and the Russian pocketing an impressive $306,169 for second place. Even the third place finish of $132,318 was no chump change, which to bring this post back full circle, was taken by none other than 'cassie13'.
