Sofia LövgrenCalifornia television network VAMN-TV recently revealed that it is working on a new television reality programme called Girl Got Game, which will follow the lives of eight female poker professionals on and off the felt in Las Vegas and Macau.

Each player will start with a $10,000 bankroll in Macau and attempt to boost it before heading to Las Vegas for the 2016 WSOP. The line up for the show includes Xuan Liu, Oanh Bui, Sabina Hiatullah, Series Creator/Executive Producer Katrina Lim, and 888poker pro Sofia Lövgren who we interviewed a while ago.

"This is a great platform for us to show that poker is not only the ultimate mental game, but also an equal opportunity game," Lövgren told PokerNews. "We want to show the amazing possibilities that poker has given us. Hopefully, we may encourage more women to join us in this male dominated profession."

"I created Girl Got Game to show that poker is a skill game and my friends work just as hard as anyone else in other professions to create a good living for themselves and their families," said series creator and producer Katrina Lim. "They deserve respect in their line of work because it not only takes talent, but a ton of resilience, intelligence, passion, and motivation: female empowerment at its best. I'm also excited to show my friends collaborating together, proving teamwork while still having fun, will always be paramount."

Aside from the reality show, all eight players will participate in a Celebrity Charity Poker Tournament in Los Angeles in May 2016. All earnings will be donated to the participants selected charities.

Do poker players really think women players have to prove themselves these days?I think most realise it is just a numbers game and the top women players can play,some may play tight but when you have a lot of guys thinking they can just bluff them it is probably a good strategy.

Where are those feminists now to tear u a new one pochui, i like what u said, but they would be just PPPPIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSEEEEEDDDDDDD at you Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile the only thing i do think should happen, is we need to have more woman players at the tables, if not anything else, at least it helps to look at something beautiful while a donk tanks for 15 min. and the table would definitely smell a lot nicer Agree

I think the title is an obvious riff to that popular sayin' in America - 'he got game'... There's even a Spike Lee movie with a title like this.

Interesting observations going on here from our eclectic mix of monsters. I have to say, that in these modern times surely it should be called, 'person got game'. It should include a mix of all potential sexual (and I suppose religious, ethnic and any other description one may wish to proffer) preferences to ensure that a fair representation of the masses is included and to allow the maximum fairness to all.

Hello MEN and women!

As a women I think that women can be good players, but guys on average are better in tactical and mathematical aspect in games.
That doesn't mean all women are worse players, it means that there are less professional female players.
A lot of women who are potential good players are busy with their families or taking care of their boyfriends. So that will lower the odds of another female pro-player.

Playing poker with emotions is a bad thing what I'm guilty off (and other women), but a lot of men also tilt or have problems with their macho behavior.

Heart Peace!!
