This infographic was submitted to us by PokerStars.com, who also submitted this description:

March 8 was International Women’s Day, a time we recognize the contribution women make to the world in every field and the historical inequalities women have had to face. This day of recognition dates back to 1911, a time long before we thought about women’s contribution to the game we all love.

So now in 2013, we thought it might be interesting to look at the female make-up of PokerStars and recognize some of the big contributions some of our top female players have made to the poker realm.

There are a few examples of data visualization on this infographic, from the first stat about the percent of the site’s players that are female to the fastest growing countries and the money list. There are more places where it could have been integrated, but it’s nice to see it put to use in a few different spots, and I like the bar charts created by chips/coins instead of just opting for plain graphs. The Top Countries for Female Players section could have also used data viz, but it’s not seen there.

A little more could have been done throughout for visual interest — maybe a textured background or a little more typographical variation. Yet, overall, the text is kept short, there isn’t too much information, and the organization is easy to follow.

In all I’d give this infographic a B: it accomplishes its goals, but is a little bland and could stand to maximize its data visualization opportunities.
