Celia Taylor, the Challenge TV executive head says that the number of women playing poker has been increasing dramatically in what was a formerly male-dominated game. She says that in poker programming Challenge TV is always ahead of the game and that women are about to make a major killing in the otherwise male dominated poker world.
Challenge TV also broadcasts other poker shows and tournaments such as the World Series of Poker (WSOP), the World Poker Tour (WPT), the Ultimate Poker Challenge and Celebrity Poker Showdown.
