For the lazy, I have quoted the relevant portions of the thread:

Surely you can see how it would be hard to understand what your posts refer to when they aren't related to the topic of the thread.

I can see where it might be hard to understand. I assumed that people had read the entire thread. My apologies.

The confusing post in question was: "Nobody said there was."

Which you convienantly left out of the long list of quotes. Can you clarify what you were referring to by "Nobody said there was"?

Somebody said something about "where was the discrimination in this case?" and nobody said there was any in this specific case

Well, I see your point but you still haven't addressed the third issue mentioned above.

Re: Man wins 'Ladies poker tournament' in Atlantic City...

This is one way to counteract the issue.....make the men pay more. 10x more.

Quote:
Ladies No-Limit Hold 'em Championship

Over the past few years, the WSOP has been dealing with the issue of men trying to enter the ladies event. In 2011, Jonathan Epstein, a man, even made the final table. Due to anti-discrimination laws, men cannot be prevented from entering this event meant only for women. To prevent the party crashers, the WSOP has discussed deterrents such as suspensions or event bans at the WSOP. However, this year, the WSOP has designed a unique buy-in structure to dissuade men from playing. The WSOP increased the buy-in for the ladies event to $10,000, but if you are a woman, you are able to receive a $9,000 discount, effectively making it a $1,000 buy-in for them, the same as last year. This amount should be enough to deter the casual male jokester. Although I do not believe that any men will buy in, if the WSOP really wanted to ensure no men would enter, why not make the buy-in an even more ridiculous amount such as $50,000 or even $100,000? Nevertheless, this new registration system should make the event the first truly all-women's event at the WSOP in the past few years.

Re: Man wins 'Ladies poker tournament' in Atlantic City...

I don't really understand what the law is, but why is giving women a discount on the buy-in any less discriminatory? Is this just a loophole?

Re: Man wins 'Ladies poker tournament' in Atlantic City...

So do women suck at poker so bad that they need a "women only" tournament? Are there "men only" tournaments? I fail to see why women should be allowed to exclude men but then it's sexist for men to exclude women.

Yes. They suck at basketball and tennis too. All womens sports exist because on an even playing field they would lose.
