Does Sex Sell Poker?

Cate Hall posted a picture on her Twitter account of the display of Chris Sand’s winner photo at the WSOP following his win at Event #1 $565 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em Casino Employees Championship.

Well known as an advocate for equality for women both on and off the table, it wasn’t Sand’s photo that caused Hall to tweet. Can you guess what it was?

A women in a low cut top was strategically placed next to the photo, because of course, the winners photo, can’t just feature the winner, can it? How will we understand the picture without a buxom lady to help us?

The tweet garnered quite a bit of attention from members of the poker community with Liv Boeree commenting that:

We hope Boeree wins that bracelet.
