Battle of the sexes winner crowned

17 August 2007

NITED KINGDOM -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- After three months of online qualifying tournaments, the Battle of the Sexes finally reached a head on Saturday 11th August. The grand final was held in London and players flew from all over Europe to take their hard-earned seat at the table.

Players from Denmark, Italy, Germany as well as the UK flew in on Saturday and joined the Purple Lounge team for some food, a few drinks and some relaxed time together before setting off to The Western private members club in West London.

The air was full of anticipation as the tournament got underway at 7.30pm with many of the finalists bringing their partners for support. Most of the players had never played live poker before, only online, so the evening was a real learning experience for everyone!

During the online qualifiers, the women played each other as did the men to ensure we found the best of the guys and the best of the girls. On the evening, the tournament started with both tables being mixed to ensure the guys and girls had an equal stab at the title. As players were whittled down to the final table, it became clear the women might not get the chance to show the men the door. There were high hopes for Caroline Parkinson who did extremely well at this years WSOP Ladies event, coming 164th out of 1284 ladies, however tonight was not to be Caroline's night and she went out early.

With the ladies on top form and the gentleman out to destroy, we couldn't have asked for a better atmosphere. After the drinks, the ladies were nicely warmed up - enough to use their assets against the men, and they certainly pulled out all the stops! There may have only been two ladies at the final table but the game play most certainly didn't stop there.

Caroline and Christina did their best to distract the men as the last two ladies battled it out and there may have even been some pole dancing at one point as a last ditch attempt to by the ladies to hang-on in there! But, it wasn't to be. The poker gods were with the lads when Sharon's KQ unbelievably lost to KJ. The girls most certainly had the chat, but the guys took the trophy with a bit of skill… and a bit of luck. Here is how the battle finished: Shaun had a huge hit, setting him up for the prize when he managed to knock two people out in one go. The best hand held up and we said goodbye to Robert & Stephen, accompanied by a huge roar of glee from all the women.
