Sports news website BleacherReport.com published a list of the “Top 30 Sexiest Female Poker Players of All-Time” over the weekend, proving, if nothing else, that anyone can make a list.

Bleacher Report is an “open source” sports network, a sports news site that allows anyone to post an article.  Its goal is to “empower the most hardcore of experts – the fans – who would otherwise be shut out of the mainstream debate.”  This can work very well at times, and the site does put out a significant amount of content, but in this case, it is apparent that the author of the “Sexiest Female Poker Players” list is not in touch with the poker world.  Several of the women on the list could are either not involved in poker any more (at least to the extent that they’ve been heard from in the last couple of years) or could barely be considered “poker players” when they were involved.

Topping the list is Tina Wallman.  While she is without a doubt extraordinarily attractive in a bikini, our guess is that at least 90% of the poker community has no idea who she is.  For those who are curious, Wallman is the spokesmodel for Carbon Poker, although she does not hold a prominent place on Carbon Poker’s website.  The Aussie, who will turn 29 years old in a week and a half, has appeared in Maxim and models for the Australian magazine Ralph.  She supposedly answers questions on Carbon Poker’s forum and posts on the site’s blog, but we did not have any luck finding anything attributed to her.

Rounding out the top five are Chantel McNulty, who was involved in soap opera-type escapades in 2007; actress Shannon Elizabeth; model and North American Poker Tour hostess Joanna Krupa, and poker presenter Tatjana Pasalic.

Other names of note include former World Poker Tour and “Poker After Dark” hostess Shana Hiatt (8th), European Poker Tour San Remo champ Liv Boeree (13th), actress and World Series of Poker bracelet winner Jennifer Tilly (14th), Team PokerStars Pro member and GoDaddy Girl Vanessa Rousso (18th), Betclic’s Isabelle Mercier (19th), “Amazing Race” competitor and Team UB member Tiffany Michelle (21st), Full Tilt pro Jennifer Harman (22nd), Team PartyPoker member Kara Scott (26th), and Team UB member Annie Duke (29th).
