Why ; Are they less intelligent ; Are men less deserving of gender specific tournaments and leagues . Sexism? . You tell me.

You should do your research - there is at least one MEN only tournament on PS. The reason they offer so many separate tourneys for women is to attract more women to the game. It's a marketing decision, not discrimination.

BTW, when was the last time you saw FT chat like this: gg, gl, bad beat gg, ul gg, etc.? You will see it in the community home games and the women's games, almost never anywhere else. Do you wish an opponent gl at a final table? It costs nothing to be encouraging, and helps make new players more at ease.

I've never understood why some men are so bothered about women only events. In the long run, anything that brings in new players is good for poker.

When you find that MENS only, you will be named researcher of the year. Find a aged based or race based tournament while your at it . G/l . If this sites interest was more players why did they split the player pool by buying FULLTILT. I think you will find their main base for anything is more CASH ! I don't play for FUN and niceties at a table are for players that are not busy playing poker. Good Luck at your table.

He doesn't play for FUN John, the Cowboys Full is a FUN game using Play Chips, so that our friends in the USA can partake.

If you think I'm looking at ANY tourney as for fun, you'd be sorely, sorely mistaken.

buy-in don't mean anything Bill.... there are a number of players that will treat that the same as a higher buy-in major live cash tourney. use the homegames as an example

If I'm in something, I'm in it to win it, whether it's a freeroll or a WSOP tourney.

I thought the boobs graphic was funny. Mine are very hairy - If it puts people off I'll take my shirt off online. So it's rubbish talking gender vs skill. Play with respect to everyone.

Now, I have to stop using the "donkey" graphic button in chat after a hand, are they well hung men or women?

Well, this isn't going to read good tomorrow. But respect, it takes time at the tables - it's a screen name and thousands of hands. Nothing to do with men vs women.

Basic poker.

Go to Tourney Private and see [as a male] how many eligible games are there for you. Pink is Stink . I,ll stop this whinge when I see as many male [or at least one pensioner and two transvestite] only tournaments.
And thank you JWK24 .
Your pointless example leads me to believe your point of view is lacking intellectual cognitivity. Next you will be informing me of the fact that I can start a home game and invite my preference of shape, size or colour.

Why don't you e-mIl support@pokerstars.com to register your disgust at this?

PSO run tournaments are open to all, so whining (To use an expression close to that you used yourself) here about it doesn't achieve a lot really.

While I am neutral on the matter, Tournaments run if there is demand there for them, so there is clearly a demand for the tournament/s you are complaining about. Perhaps 'educating' the misguided people who are playing it would also be a better use of time?

I agree with 22meandu in that it's weird and even a little bit discriminating that there are women-only tournaments, but not men-only. I am even kind of jealous because overall the women's club tourneys seem kind of soft and easy money.

On the other hand, I get that it's a great marketing tool for PokerStars and the tourneys aren't created with any sort of discrimination towards men, but rather to attract the female market. Men-only tournaments just aren't interesting for a marketing perspective, so they don't exist.

Add to that, regular tourneys are probably 90-95% sausage fests anyway. :P

Since the majority of poker players are men, there is no marketing incentive to target men in particular. If you feel so strongly about this, I suggest you post in the thread for the player meeting with this request.

@Darkman - I think they were cancelled due to poor entries, and they added a bunch of $0.11 and $0.55 re-entry tourneys. The only one I'll miss is the spades club with a $1.10 entry, the weekly tourney had nice payout.
