My dad watches quite a bit of poker, and I noticed that when it's all guys at the table, they list their hands by their last names. But when it was all women the other night, their hands were all listed by their first names. Because they're women, you see. Also, I doubt commentators often mention how good-looking players are when only dudes are playing. "Lamkin may be knocked out, but he's smart and pretty... we'll be seeing him again."

Did you ever consider that they all come from the same family and share the same last name! Poker is a Mormon "sport". God, Stone!

What station was he watching? Because I've always seen the woman listed by their last names as well as the men. I love when Annie Duke plays because it just says "Duke" and I think that's cool.

But I do agree with the commenting on their hotness bit. 90 percent of female professional poker players are damn smokin'. And I'm okay with that.
