Women Some of the Top Earners of 2010 at PokerStars

31 December 2010 by admin

This time tomorrow when you are getting your dose of Online Casino Suite 2010 will only be a memory. But the women on team PokerStars have set the bar for earning in the next year. The top 40 list of who won what and who won more in 2010 has been released; and all of you lady poker players will be pleased to know that women were some of the top earners of 2010 on team PokerStars, in fact several made the top 40.

Three of the top 10 earners of 2010 were women, something that is not lost on fellow team member Daniel Negreanu: “That is three ladies in the top 10, and that is pretty impressive considering the fact that women only make up approximately 5% of tournament fields.”

Those three ladies who were top 10 earners were Vanessa Rousso in 9th place with earning totaling at $616,514. Then we jump all the way up to 2nd place where we find Liv Boeree whose 2010 earnings came to $1,825,425. And then at the top of the earners, beating the boys, is Vanessa Selbst. Her tournament winnings for 2010 came to a grand total of $2,865,830.

Negreanu said, “I found [it] interesting how badly the PokerStars boys were outplayed by the women!” But this is a case where the women have shown that the poker table is no longer a man’s world and that they are more than capable of not only holding their own in the world of poker tournaments, but that their skill can out do that of the boys.

With a top 40 list, and certainly that top 10 list to consider, it is going to be a very interesting year in the poker world next year. Negreanu’s comments lead one to believe that the boys might be inclined to step up their game to save face. As Negreanu put it “It will be interesting to see which one of these three ladies can out do the other in 2011. It will be perhaps more interesting to see instead which men will be able to catch these remarkable women players up come the New Year.”

I am inclined to think that Negreanu is not well-versed in the ways of women. Such a phrase as that last comment of his is usually greeted as a challenge of the ‘Oh, you think you can do better because you are a man? Well, we shall see about that, my boy’ variety. My money is on the ladies of Team PokerStars out striping the boys again in 2011. Obviously being in the minority on the team has not stopped them from placing in the top 10.
