PokerStars focusing on British women

8 Sep 2009

ISLE OF MAN -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- British women have been rocking the world of poker lately and showing men they really do have the skills and talent to make it to the top.

Team PokerStars UK PRO Vicky Coren won £500,000 at the PokerStars.com European Poker Tour (EPT) event in London in 2006 and a further $40k at this year's PokerStars Caribbean Adventure while former PokerStars EPT presenter Kara Scott has won over $500k in the last 14 months alone after coming 2nd at the Irish Open and going deep two years running at the World Series of Poker.

There's no doubt British women have what it takes to compete at international level but now PokerStars is giving them a helping hand - a unique chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to London and a seat in a major live women-only event. The "PokerStars EPT Ladies Game", which takes place October 5, forms part of the PokerStars EPT London Poker Festival and follows the success of other women-only events at PokerStars tournaments around the world.

From now until September 26, PokerStars is running a series of daily freeroll ("free to enter") tournaments aimed just at British women. The top nine players each day will get a seat in the online final on September 27 and the top ten finalists will win a £500 Ladies Game prize package including the £220 entry fee for the EPT Ladies Game, £100 spending money and a night at the five-star Hilton Metropole hotel - not to mention a signed copy of Vicky Coren's new book and the chance to meet her in person.

Coren, a member of Team PokerStars PRO since 2006, said: "There are a lot of great female poker players out in the world already, but there could be a lot more. Playing online, women don't have to worry about the long late hours of the live game, or the stern faces of a roomful of men. You can log on whenever you like, for as long or short a time as you like, and fit this around the demands of careers, childcare or whatever else is going on. For women who want to take a shot at a live tournament - but don't fancy staring at a table of snarling male opponents - this promotion is perfect."

The freeroll tournaments can be found under Tourney/Regional on the PokerStars client. The software can be downloaded free of charge from www.pokerstars.com.
