Last week, women’s poker community Pocket Queens, with support from PLON, FLIP, LIPS, WIP and similar groups, addressed gender inequality in the Hendon Mob database.
Hendon Mob has been collecting player data for years and is the largest database of live poker results. Users can filter the output to include gender selection.
However, when THM receives data from a poker room or poker room, it only provides the name of the player, not the gender.
So TMH has the task of determining the gender of the player. For women’s tournaments or famous poker players, it’s easy. However, if the user has a gender-neutral name (usually from an Asian country), it can be difficult to determine the gender. Hendon Mob attributes this to men, as they make up the vast majority of poker players.
Any user with an error listed on the site may contact the organizers and request changes. However, this always happens after the fact.
