Poker Battle of the Sexes Conquered by a Woman. - Saturday 12th of March 2005

Kathy Liebert was handed over the $130,000 prize as she won the Battle of the sexes tournament beating the men who had dominated the contest until then.

Settling the debate in the final episode, Liebert skillfully played her way around top poker players Amir Vahedi, Layne Flack and Antonio Esfandiari. She came from behind and led the women's team to victory after six episodes where the men triumphed over the women, earning them bragging rights until the final table was concluded.

'I used all of my acting skills,' said winner Kathy Liebert. 'At one point I let them think I had a poor hand. I new if they smelled weakness, they would try to bluff me and I had 'the nuts'. The guys put all their chips in when I had the superior hand. Their egos got the best of them. It serves them right to get beaten by a woman.
