Year Of The Woman Continues As Allyn Shulman Wins Venetian Deep Stack Main Event

Year Of The Woman Continues As Allyn Shulman Wins Venetian Deep Stack Main EventAllyn Jaffrey Shulman has recorded yet another big success for female poker players this year, after taking down the $5,000 Poker Tour Venetian Deep Stack Extravaganza III main event. On her way to victory, Mrs Shulman had to first overcome a tough field of 262 players to claim the title, and collect the $293,966 first place prize.
Only last year, Allyn Jaffrey Shulman won a WSOP bracelet at the $1,000 NL Seniors Championship, having first bested a huge 4,128 player field to claim the $603,713. Following her stunning victory last year at the restricted event, Allyn Shulman commented:
“I’m happy for myself, but I’m happy for all women that I won this. Showing that any woman can win a poker tournament and I’d like to see more of them out there playing, feeling comfortable with going at it with the boys and winning.”
Now with her latest success early Thursday morning in Las Vegas, Shulman has boosted her live tournament earnings to $1,232,736, taking her to 19th overall on the ‘Women’s All Time Money List.’
Last year’s WSOP heralded in the year of the woman, with Vanessa Selbst capturing a second career bracelet at the $2,500 10-Game Mix for $244,259, Allyn Jaffrey-Shulman winning the Seniors event, and Elisabeth Hille and Gaelle Bauman finishing in 11th and 10th place respectively at the Main Event, excrutatingly close to the final table.
This year is also proving to be another big success for female poker players, especially with both Dana Castaneda and Loni Harwood having taken down open events at the 2013 WSOP, and now Allyn Jaffrey Shulman’s impressive performance at the Venetian Deep Stack Main Event
Commenting on the improving performances of  ladies at poker events, Mrs Shulman explained: “As years go by, women become more and more comfortable in all fields. For example, when I was a beginning lawyer, there were quite a lot of male lawyers and not a lot of female lawyers. So slowly, in different fields, women are breaking into those fields and pretty soon it will be all even.”
