Although she was told no woman had ever dealt the tournament or had even applied to deal before, she wasn't gonna take ‘no' for an answer and went to talk to owner Benny Binion. The two hit it off immediately after she mentioned her Montana roots, and the rest is history…
Margie's sting dealing at the 1977 World Series of Poker was so successful that she was invited to deal the final table in front of a televised audience – further opening the door for women in the poker industry across the nation.
