Valentina Thörner is the founder of Pokerinas and head teacher and dealer of our workshops. She used to work as a poker player until legislations in Spain changed. Nowadays she plays mostly for fun and enjoys teaching other women the joys of this card game.
Currently there are only about 5% of female poker players, a ratio that never really made sense to Valentina. Poker is not only a game of logic and mathematics, but also a game of intuition and observation. There is no reason whatsoever why women should not enjoy the game just as much.
Currently Valentina does most workshops herself, however she counts with other female dealers to help cater to bigger events.
