In the world of poker, although the presence of women has increased a lot in the last decade, it is not yet what it should be. As a result, the women who do play find themselves in the minority, almost always one of just a few women in an event. That’s just fine for the strong, independent women in the poker world, they’re more than capable of dealing with this state of affairs, day in and day out. However, we hear this a lot: at least once in a while, it would be great to turn the tables and be in the majority.
This is why tonight, we pay tribute to these strong women of poker by giving them a separate Event in the World Cup of Cards. Event #21 is a $135 + $15 NL Hold’em Women’s Event with an $8,000 guaranteed prize pool, 20-minute levels and 20,000 starting chips. All women are welcome to register, and will be able to get in the event until the end of the first break, which will come at 8:30pm.
Cards will be in the air in about 10 minutes. Have a great night!
