Oh - and they're hot. Stroll through the World Series of Poker playing area Tuesday night at the Rio revealed a statement about the current climate of the game. Massive pictures of Annette Obrestad, a 21-year old poker superstar from Norway, on the cover of Bluff Magazine lined the hallways. A final table in the Amazon Room featured Jennifer Harman, a 46-year old Las Vegas poker veteran, battling two other players for the $10,000 buy-in seven card stud hi-low world championship.

Well - it's about time, and well - I'm glad. We need people from all walks of life playing poker, and mars needs more women. :-)
