Jackie Glazier “Forums add to sexism within poker”

WSOP Bracelet winner talks sexism, equality in poker.

Jackie Glazier has had quite a 2013, from earning the title of “Last Woman Standing” by finishing the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event in 31st place to becoming an*888poker* sponsored pro to capturing her first bracelet at the 2013 WSOPE — it’s been a career year.

In this interview with CalvinAyre's Lee Davy, she doesn’t really address any of that, instead focusing on what it’s like to be a strong woman in a male dominated hobby-sport. She offers her views on a wide range of topics including sexism, inequality, the growing contingent of female players and even takes a couple shots at “the forums.” Solid read worth checking, no matter which gender you are or identify with.
