She believes that the creation of ladies, seniors or men poker event have nothing to do with discrimination. Coren said, “This is just a game. People have come here to have fun. Traditionally, women don’t play poker – and that’s partially because some of them find it intimidating. Having a ladies event is not about being Prime Minister or running a country – it’s not that important. Ladies event are a nice way to create a fun event and at the same time to attract women that would not play otherwise.”
