Man crashes women's poker tournament

A male card shark has crashed a "ladies-only" poker tournament to win nearly $24,000, taking the top prize from a breast cancer sufferer in the process.

Abraham Korotki, a Las Vegas-based poker expert whose online profile claims career winnings of over $700,000, entered himself in the event at the Borgata Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey by exploiting a loophole in the rules.

After paying his $345 entry fee, Mr Korotki was allowed to play despite calls of protest from the field of 269 women.

Making it to the last two remaining players, he then emerged victorious to take home $23,985 - the lion's share of the pool - as well as a trophy engraved "Ladies Champion".

Further ruffling the feathers of his female competitors was the fact that Mr Korotki turned down an offer from his ill final opponent to split the money instead of playing on.

Nicole Rowe, who is facing breast cancer surgery in the coming weeks, reportedly told him she needs the money to pay for her living expenses while she recovered.

Mr Korotki, who collected almost $500,000 for a single World Series of Poker tournament in 2006, rejected the offer.

"When you're a woman and you play poker, 99 percent of the time you're at a table with nine men," Philadelphia Daily News reported Ms Rowe as saying.

"Why did he have to ruin it for us? Why would he do this?"

Mr Korotki, a 65-year-old real estate developer, has since reportedly pledged to donate his winnings to charity but the recipient has not been identified and nor has any payment been confirmed.

Ms Rowe, a 40-year-old New York optician, took home $13,649.

Aw, they really hate it when the tides are turned on them. Just like in bowling. Women can bowl in mens tournaments/leagues, but men can't bowl in women's tournaments/leagues. Too bad there isn't a loophole there too.

Wear a dress?

I know what you mean all women talk about equality and then what's really fair. "You can't play basketball with us, it's a female league", "you can't apply for that scholarship, it's only for women", "Hey you can't be in here, this is the Ladies bathroom".

Pffft... Women and their special treatment.

Equality is having only one game, men, women, whomever playing. If you can't compete with everyone you should not compete.
