Poker is a game that is dominated by men, but that doesn’t mean that women don’t enjoy playing poker. More and more women have started to play poker whether it is in the casino or online. A lot of women have found that playing online is better because they can remain anonymous while they’re playing. Over the years there have been many professional women poker players, but since we can’t talk about them all we’ll only look at some of the best women poker players.
