Quite surprising that a woman had not won on this circuit before.It would be interesting to see what the percentages are for women players who do cash.There still isn't that many women players who play professionally but I think that the gap in ability is not that big,if at all.

Is diferent and a surprise that one women never really won a tournament on this circuit, many woman play but never get in to the top, and now they have one thing to be proud and one women in particular that brings the side and the percentage high of women in this circuit and others and get good results.

In future we will see not only more female in tournaments, but also more female winning tournaments, and not only online but also in live in huge tournaments.

Congratulations for her and keep nice and good results.

Again with the asians and their math skills - enough is enough Big Smile BTW congrats 2 her, of course no one is going to assume that she would be back doing the 'restaurant business' again. Probably going to play cards for living after this win.
