PokerStars Announce Women's Poker League

Posted at 13:47 2010-08-03

Many casino poker tournaments have instituted “ladies only” events and leagues as a way of allowing women to compete against each other in a non-threatening environment. Unfortunately, the ladies-only concept has been lacking in the online poker world…until now!

PokerStars recently announced that they have launched a brand new Women’s Poker League. The Women’s Poker League allows ladies from all over the globe to compete against each other for huge cash prizes and even tournament prize packages to land-based women’s tourneys.

To get started, all you need to do is visit the PokerStars lobby and look for Women’s Poker League tournaments. The buy-ins for the daily tourneys are only $5.50, and you can play in these events at 13:10 and 21:10 ET. There is also a Sunday tournament at 21:10 ET where the buy-in is $55.

As long as you buy into a tournament and compete, you’ll receive one point in the Women’s Poker League standings regardless of where you finish. If you’re able to cash, you will receive five points while placing anywhere from first to ninth will reward between 10 and 20 points. Obviously the more points you earn the better prizes you’ll receive.

Speaking of prizes, cash will be given out to the top players on both the US Dollars standings and the Euros standings. The first place finisher on the monthly leaderboards will earn $300/€200 while everybody who places in the top 50 will receive a cash prize.

The biggest prizes are being saved for the players who top the yearly leaderboard with first place set to receive a $1,500/€1,000 Ladies Luxury Event prize package. Second place will earn $1,000/€700 while the top 50 will all get a cash prize as well.

Moving up the Women’s Poker League standings is easy since you earn points just for playing. And if you’re able to cash or finish in the top nine, you really stand a good chance of winning one of the cash prizes at the end of the month. If you stay consistent, you could also win one of the huge prizes at the end of the year!
