Maryann Morrison's "Woman Poker Player" print magazine has been acquired by the Bluff Media group for an undisclosed consideration.
Explaining the sale, Morrison said this week: "Woman Poker Player magazine was founded as a vehicle for the encouragement of women to play poker. At that time women were only representing about ten percent of live players, and this is no longer the case. We all know women are fierce poker players and have substantially grown PokerStarsin numbers over the past two years. It is not a progressive step for women to have segregation of any kind."
Bluff Media sees the acquisition as a strong move that further strengthens its position as a top poker magazine.
"We're very happy to accept Woman Poker Player's readers into the Bluff community," said Eric Morris, co-president and publisher of Bluff Media. "As women are beginning to make up a larger percentage of the overall player base it's important that our magazine properly reflects this and we feel that this move does just that."
While subscribers to Woman Poker Player magazine will now receive Bluff Magazine on a monthly basis the website, Woman Poker, will continue to provide readers with the quality content they've come to expect.
"I am pleased that Bluff Media has agreed to continue servicing our subscribers. Bluff offers excellent poker education for all poker players, and is a valuable resource in the poker community," said Morrison.
