The World Series of Poker's Main Event has begun and what better way to discuss it then by constructing a list of the hotties who could actually win.
I have spend a lot of time around casinos but I have never had the chance to win an official WSOP tournament. That could be because my level of play is a notch above a teenager or it is because I like to go all-in a lot.
But this is not about me, it is about the beautiful women who actually could win this thing. They have the talent level to take home the pot, which is estimated at around nine million dollars.
This list was ranked according to how good they play and as well as how hot they are.
Yes, I have been told that Jennifer Harman is to old to be considered hot especially compared to all the other women on the list.
However, I am here to prove otherwise. When she was younger, she was a babe. The only reason people have taken that title away from her is because of her bad ass poker play. Also, her age.
But if anyone has a chance to win it all, Jennifer is your gal. She has the most experience of any one on this list and has more winnings too.
Seriously? Did she really need to eat a banana during a tournament? She could not have had a banana smoothie?
I can not imagine anyone at that table being able to focus on their cards.
Veronika Larsen is one of the most underrated poker players in the world. Not because she is one of the best but because she is pretty good but no one has ever heard of her.
She plays in the European Poker Tour but has yet to make a real win. However, she could ask me what I was holding in a cute way and I would give her my cards. She is that hot people!
What does it take to become an instant success in this world?
How about winning an office pool at Maxim and entering into the World Series of Poker? And finishing in the money?
Erin Ness is now a contender. Her beauty puts her on this list but her talent has her moving up the ranks.
If you watched the movie Bound, then I do not need to explain how hot Jennifer Tilly is and how she can be the biggest distraction at any table.
She has a great teacher behind her, literally, and Hollywood to fall back on so she is basically playing with house money. She has nothing to lose and everything to gain, a formula that could get her onto that glorious final table at the Main Event.
Clonie Gowen can do anything. No litterally, she can do anything you ask her to do.
She has won Miss Teen Oklahoma when she was 15, played varsity basketball in high school, and was a high jumper.
She didn't even play poker until a few years ago. Someone taught her to play and voila, she became a natural star.
How many women have cashed in the World Series of Poker Main Event in back-to-back years?
If you answered two, you are correct and one of them just so happens to be the lovely Kara Scott. She cashed in both 2008 and 2009, improving from each year.
She is steadily becoming a favorite to win it all especially when she dresses like in the photo. I don't know how any man could concentrate with a babe like that sitting next to him.
Helen Chamberlain was a Penthouse Playmate in 2004, nuff said.
No one knows about Lauren Kling yet. I am here to introduce you to her.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Lauren Kling. She is good at poker and is a smoking hottie.
This selection might be a shocker to most people but Laura Prepon is more than just a pretty face from television and movies. She has mad poker skills.
In fact, she has played in several World Series of Poker tournaments. Besides her poker skills, Laura has several sexy photo shoots on file. One of her best is this Maxim shot.
This babe has more talent in one hand then most men have in their whole body.
Wait a minute, that sounds so wrong. I am referring to her poker skills.
Most people probably went south with that comment so let me bring you back to the point of this article, which is to look at beautiful women. You are welcome.
When I think poker, my first thoughts are, where are the beautiful former models so I can cozy up next to them.
It might sound weird but I don't care about winning as long as I get seated next to the mega hot Erica Schoenberg.
With nearly $800,000 in winnings, Erica is climbing the ranks each time I make a slideshow to become an instant favorite.
I was going to add some commentary about this beauty but when I went to do research on her website, I was distracted by all the pictures and videos.
You should do some research too. Check out her website and see for yourself.
With a nickname of "Poker Diva", this beautiful Vietnamese poker player intimidates everyone when she walks into the room.
If someone could just bring her a Snickers, then maybe she would change her nickname. Either way, she is still a complete babe that deserves recognition among the other good poker players on this list.
With legs like that, I do not need to explain how beautiful this British babe is, I will instead commentate on her poker skills.
Forget that, I will just let you enjoy the view from here.
Why wouldn't I include a poker hottie that used some of her winnings to purchase a new set of hooters. And I am not talking about owls.
As another celebrity turned poker pro, Shannon Elizabeth came into the poker world as a hottie with little or no poker skills but she surprised everyone and started to take down the big wigs one tournament at a time.
While she is not taking off her clothes and fooling around with Jason Biggs anymore, she is quietly becoming a favorite to take home the biggest prize in poker, a Main Event victory.
Tiffany Michele has finished higher than any other woman in poker history in last year's Main Event.
No need to explain why she is on this list, she almost won it last year, finishing 17th, so why not make her a favorite to take it all this year.
Take a moment to look at her...amazing! She is also smarter than you, take a look:
Jennicide, as she is better known as, has the best chance to rise from this crop of beautiful poker women. I know that Jennifer Tilly has probably won more tournaments and money but she is not nearly as hot as Jennifer.
Her combination of skills and beauty make this hottie a force to be reckoned with at the Main Event this year. She is a sleeper pick to win it all but I stand by my choices when I say that Jennicide could win it all in 2010.
