The growth rate of women entering poker has increased dramatically over the past year, due to the heightened interest in poker through television coverage, and the growth of tournament poker. The Womens Poker Club is pleased to announce its inaugural WPC Showdown Tournament to be held September 9 – 11 inclusive, at Binion’s Horseshoe in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Womens Poker Club was formed to encourage more women to enter the poker playing field by providing them with a friendly and less threatening environment to improve their skills. The club boasts over 700 members to date.
Royal Vegas Poker, the exclusive sponsor of this event, will be holding satellite and super satellite events where women will have a chance to win a free trip to the WPC Vegas Showdown. The online tournaments, available at Royal Vegas Poker.com are open to any and all female poker players.
The main event will be held on Saturday, September 11th, a No Limit Texas Hold’em Tournament with a buy-in of $100+$25. The prize pool is estimated at over $10,000. Two secondary tournaments will be run simultaneously on Friday, September 10th. A 7-card Stud Hi Limit and Omaha Hi Lo Pot Limit with a buy-in of $60+$15.
