25 Hottest Poker Babes We Know We Can Beat
A woman in a poker room is about as common as a woman at a Rush concert. They’re unicorns and even the most appalling get oodles of attention. It’s the only place on earth where there is a shorter line for the women’s bathroom than the men’s.
There are some hotties out there that make their living on the felt. But you won’t see the likes of Jennifer Harman (2 time WSOP bracelet holder) or Annette Obrestad (2007 WSOP Europe Champion- also, not hot) on this list.
These are the Hottest Poker Babes We Know We Can Beat.
(*Editors Note: Matt M can actually find his way around a poker room.)
25. Beth Shak
Beth’s poker credentials are pretty good: about a half of a million dollars in live tournament winnings. But, if she can’t even remember to wear a bra at the table, I think we can take her.
24. Clonie Gowen
Former beauty queen and poker millionairess Clonie Gowan was the staple for smoking hot poker chicks in the early 2000s, but she’s fallen off a little bit (see the rest of the list). She’ll find herself at the top of the list if she wins the $40 million lawsuit she filed against Full Tilt. Having a bank roll that could choke a hippo is extremely sexy.
23. Maria Ho
Ho (you gotta love that name) gained poker notoriety during the 2007 WSOP when she was the last woman standing. Her 38th place finish netted her $237,865, but most of us remember her for her gorgeous face and smokin’ body.
22. Laura Prepon
Alright, so she’s not a professional poker player; she’s more of an enthusiast. Most memorable as Donna on “That ‘70s Show,” Prepon began playing heavily in the mid 2000s. Still somewhat of a novice, and without any notable cashes, we know we can handle her at the table.
21. Erin Ness
This Georgetown grad and New York City resident has been spotted at poker room’s across the country. Her credentials at the table lead one to believe that she has gotten by on her “girl next door” look and not her play.
20. Kara Scott
Kara Scott is a force to be reckoned with at the table, having cashed consecutive WSOP Main Events in 2008 and 2009. She was only the second woman to accomplish the feat. Having said that, hundreds of men have done the same thing but we don’t know their names.
19. Jennifer Tilly
Jennifer is probably best known for her illustrious acting resume, but she does own one WSOP bracelet. Unfortunately for her credibility, it’s in the Ladies’ event.
18. Sandra Naujoks
Sandra has made a lot of money playing tournaments across the globe. Though she can probably credit most of her success to her icy stare.
Look away men, or she might nag you until you fold.
17. Amanda Leatherman
Who could forget about Amanda Leatherman, the reporter for Season 7 of the World Poker Tour? I’ll tell you who: the lady at the cash out cage.
Amanda has cashed one WSOP event when she finished 45th in the Ladies’ Event.
16. Lily Mizrachi
No, it’s not the Grinder, or even one of his brothers. It’s not even a Mizrachi uncle or grandfather. It’s the vivacious Lily Mizrachi, who if she sat down next to you, you’d stare for a completely different reason.
15. Kristy Arnett
Sometimes she dresses like a dude, but she never plays like one. Sometimes she looks like this, and we all applaud.
14. Vanessa Rousso
French American Rousso began playing professionally in 2005. In those past few years, she has amassed nearly $3 million, and she looks pretty damn good. I’m not sure we could beat her. Moving on…
13. Liz Lieu
It’s hard to take Liz Lieu seriously after looking at dozens of photos of her in lingerie. Her $825,000 in live tournament winnings can be attributed to her unreal curves. Also, she wears that stuff to the table.
12. Amanda Musumeci
Philly’s own Musumeci looks pretty good sitting at the table, but she doesn’t have too many accolades to speak of. I guess Bodog is interested in sponsoring random hot women to play in tournaments. Hey, maybe that’s not such a bad idea.
11. Helen Chamberlain
Her last known live cash was five years ago. So why include her on the list? Well, we know we can handle a rusty player, and she is a former Penthouse Pet.
10. Veronika Larsen
Who cares that she has only won about $4,000 in live tourneys? She could be a part-time model. But, she’d probably have to keep her normal job.
9. Erica Schoenberg
Another serious contender on the felt, Schoenberg makes her home in Las Vegas. With stunningly original nicknames like “Poker Babe” and “Blackjack Babe,” we’re guessing she isn’t surrounding herself with the most cerebral opponents.
8. Jennifer Leigh
Here’s a walking distraction. Jennifer Leigh is probably the best looking thing to walk out of the great state of Delaware. Her game on the other hand is questionable as she hasn’t put money in her pocket in nearly five years.
7. Lacey Jones
Yikes, that shirt is low-cut. Try and look beyond the sweater puppets when facing off against Lacey. She’s had some nominal success as of late, but her deductive reasoning can’t be all that sharp looking the way she does.
6. Olivia Boeree
There is no way Olivia Boeree has any kind of a personality, but she sure has a lot of cashes. To defeat her, simply stare at her amazing figure until she is uncomfortable.
5. Joanna Krupa
This is getting ridiculous. There is no way this chick plays poker. Have you seen the slobs shuffling around poker rooms? Let’s just move on.
4. Sara Jean Underwood
Ten times hotter than Carrie Underwood and apparently some kind of shark. Maybe not, I can’t seem to find any information about this goddess’ game. Who cares? She is crazy hot.
3. Tara Rice
As you can see, this is getting more and more insane. Just because Rice played in a $100 Ladies’ No Limit Event in Los Angeles doesn’t mean she should make this list. Sure it does. She plays, there is absolutely nothing wrong with her, and we could empty her pockets or bikini or whatever she wears to the table.
2. Tina Wallman
The new spokesbabe for Carbon Poker is out of this world hot and apparently she knows the rules to Texas Hold ‘Em. And if she doesn’t, all the better. We can look at perfection personified and make some money at the same time.
1. Shannon Elizabeth
Shannon Elizabeth’s beauty is realized best in person. A story for you guys.
It’s the 2010 WSOP and I am cashing out a little more than $2,300 after my 223rd place finish when Shannon walks in. She had just finished her Ante Up for Africa Event and was seeking her prize money. Both sitting and waiting only feet from each other, I decide to spark up a conversation.
Me- “Hey Shannon, saw you went deep in your tourney.”
Me- “(no recollection of my incoherent babble)”
In short, she may have been one of the most strikingly beautiful women I have ever laid eyes on and I made a complete ass out of myself. Mission accomplished.
