It’s estimated that the ratio of male to female professional poker players is approximately 19:1. The same could perhaps be said of the field of poker writing, where relatively few women choose to make a career. One such woman is Jennifer Newell, who has stood out as a top poker writer for over a decade.
Known for being vocal on numerous subjects, we invite you to read more about Jennifer in this interview, and perhaps discover quite a few things you may not have known about her.
We hope you enjoy this next installment in our ongoing Get to Know the Poker Media series, featuring our first female interviewee.
Ever wonder why there are so few women playing live poker? Poker fans would love to see the game boom again and there are tens of thousands of women who could make this happen, if only they’d summon the courage to step out into the live poker world. In this feature piece, poker’s leading ladies, including all-time women’s leading money winner Vanessa Selbst and Poker Hall of Famer Linda Johnson, united to speak openly about how they’d like to see women advance in the poker world. It is hoped that their voices will be heard far and wide via this article, which I humbly believe has the power to change poker’s status quo.
