By maddy
According to the UK-based poker website, Victor Chandler Poker, the operator of, the traditional male-dominated poker is now giving way to the fairer sex, women.

The website reported that one in six new players joining are women – up from virtually zero just two years ago. The typical female player tends to be between 24 and 25, Internet savvy, shop online and has a professional business career, the web metrics suggest.

‘Women are being increasingly attracted to the excitement of online poker. Many professional women now shop extensively online and it’s natural that they should explore other ways of having fun and spending their money online,’ said a spokesperson for the poker site.

Related research from Cambridge Professor, Simon Baron-Cohen in his book “The Essential Difference” suggests that men and women do show different personality traits. Dr.Cohen says, these traits undoubtedly influence how both men and women play poker.

Internal company research suggests that, with increased media attention, poker tournaments, TV shows, poker is finding new fans in the women’s segment. Adding to it, is the Internet which creates a safe environment. ‘Logging on to a poker website is nowhere near as intimidating as walking into a male-dominated casino. Good online poker rooms are moderated, mostly by women,’ reports VC Poker.
