GUTS"All this base behavior is rarely displayed outside our motley crew. There have been a few women players, usually a wife or femme-fatale, but that was the rare occasion when we needed fillers to host a game. We avoid their inclusion because that usually means we have to behave. It's nothing against the female species, rather I might argue it's out of respect. Men know they are primitive when not under the watch of women and therefore prefer not to subject the gentler kind to our raucous, inane, and most likely offensive senselessness.
Q: Why is it difficult to find men who are sensitive, caring and good looking?
A: They all already have boyfriends.
Moreover, women tend to win and we hate to admit defeat in our exclusive realm of competitive play and leisure. We have to remain better at least one thing. Besides, it's competitive, and although a woman can certainly hold her own under pressure, we all have experienced too many occasions when motherly instincts got in the way of true cloak and dagger play - Women want to give away the farm or play Mother Theresa, that is not possible in any real game of poker. This is not a charity! The loser loses and that's that. Lying is okay and cheating does not make you a bad person."
