Jennifer is the best all-around woman player in the world. She is the only woman to regularly play $1000-$2000 limit and higher. She is the only woman who has won two WSOP bracelets in open events.

Amusing anecdote

Jennifer was one of the leading money winners in the high-stakes heads-up matches against the wealthy banker Andy Beal. Andy wrote a letter challenging our coalition to play higher stakes than we could afford. In a reply for the group that was never sent, I mentioned why Jennifer didn’t play during one of Andy’s extended visits: “Jennifer didn’t play because she was in the hospital recovering from a kidney transplant. Jennifer is such an aggressive raiser that we thought the connections to the IV and the heart monitor might loosen if she brought them with her.”

Reason for this song choice

Since Jennifer is the premier female player in the predominantly men’s world of poker, this song seemed appropriate.
