Recently, poker pro Jessica Dawley sat down with the us and the New Jersey Blogger Network to play a game of poker together at the Game Time Bar and Grill inside iPlay America. Dawley, 888 Poker’s Spokesperson and a US Veteran, has had a love of the game of poker since her childhood. Her goal right now: Tilt the scales of the poker table to see more than only 4% women playing.
We were eager to hear what Jessica had to tell us to improve our game. The goal of the event was for Jessica to teach a group of women to poker basics so that they could feel more confident and comfortable playing the game of poker with a group of men. The game of poker is right now predominately dominated by men and 888 Poker and Jessica Dawley is working hard to change that demographic! I have seen first hand how intimidating men can be towards woman around the poker table and Jessica gave us the insider tips we needed to empower ourselves to give men a run for their money!
Jessica’s patience and willingness to teach us was wonderful!
