Twenty years ago, if you entered a casino to play poker, you were most likely an older male. Just five years ago, the average poker club featured a lot of middle aged and older men and only a few men under thirty. Today, the person sitting next to you at the poker table is very likely a younger adult. What’s more, the person sitting next to you is increasingly a young female, something almost unheard of in the poker world of the past. Here are the top 5 smoking hot ladies of poker, and anyone who finds himself seated at a poker table with any of them should seriously take heed because they aren’t just beautiful—they are smart and can play poker too.
#5 Jayde Nicole
Jayde Nicole, 2008 Playboy Playmate of the year, has been working the poker circuit lately. She first started playing poker about a year ago and is now being seen more often at big-money poker events. She played in the 2009 Legends of Poker Celebrity Media Invitational after being coached by WSOP former Main Event champion, Jamie Gold. She also participated in the Ante Up for Africa event and recently appeared on the television show, PokerStars.net Million Dollar Challenge in November. She will also be playing at the online poker rooms, so catch her in some of the big money tourneys online and the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in January. She also plans on joining in on the fun at WSOP in 2010. She’s hot, but she hasn’t been on the poker scene that long; therefore, she comes in at #5.
