The latest article by Jen Shahade features women who have competed on The Big Game with players like Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth.

One of the women was Courtney Gee, and an excerpt from the article describes her play since the show:

Since the show, Courtney has increased her volume and says she feels like a different player, "I've learned to hand-read better, and (deepened) my understanding of stack-sizes and position." She's also posted a number of stellar results on PokerStars this summer, including 1st place in a $44 15K guaranteed Turbo, chopping a $11 Rebuy for almost 10K and final tabling a $162 freezeout.

Courtney also plays the Women's Sunday every week. "I'm really impressed that Stars has worked so hard to involve women. I hope more women start playing poker. I just think it's an amazing game. "

yeah courtney gee was pretty pathetic in the big game imo. said she wanted to be a pro, but she folded every hand. did get it in good on one hand with pocket pair over pocket pair, but the other guy hit a set to beat her. i never knew what her plan was, what with her folding so much.
