A man won a women's poker tournament in Florida but says he is "100% against" men participating in women's sports.
Dave Hughes, who won the "Ladies No-Limit Hold'em" event at the Seminole Hard Rock in Florida, said he drove over five hours to visit a friend competing in a $7 million poker event at the casino on April 29, 2023, TimCast reported.
However, when Hughes wanted to play in an event, the only game available for participation was the women's tournament. Hughes was able to compete in and win the tournament, as state law prevented management from barring a man from entering a women's event, according to PokerNews.com.
“I figured why not, the ladies, as you know, are just as fierce, capable, and competitive as the men in poker and smell a lot better as well,” Hughes told Timcast News.
“For the record, I’m 100% against men taking advantage of women in sports where strength and muscle make it quite unfair — as we all can clearly see with men breaking all records set by women in every sport across the board while pretending to be women," Hughes explained.
