Women upping the ante in high-stakes poker
These poker-playing women have been
saying "Time's Up" since the 1980s

Tiffin native Tracy Halcomb is screening her award winning documentary about professional female poker players Cracking Aces: A Woman's Place at the Table, for one night only, Sept 19th at 7:30pm. This one-night event is a fundraiser for Alzheimer's research and all proceeds will be donated to the Northwest Ohio Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association."

Cracking Aces: A Woman's Place at the Table is a feature-length documentary about the women making strides in the male-dominated realm of high-stakes poker. These pioneering female poker players throw open the doors to the world of professional poker to reveal the hurdles of exploitation and harassment which women must overcome to earn a place at the table. This documentary project, produced by a woman and featuring dozens of female poker players, sheds light on a game and an industry that has almost exclusively catered to men - including women only when they fit the "hot babes of poker" or "girls on the rail" stereotypes. Audiences of high-rollers to penny-ante novices will connect with this story of struggle, empowerment and achievement, regardless of gender.
