Women in Poker Initiatives Will Be at the Forefront During WPT World Championship

Women in Poker Initiatives Will Be at the Forefront During WPT World Championship

The World Poker Tour (WPT) is taking the poker community's desire to bring more women into the game seriously, and you'll see exactly what we mean by that next month during the WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas.

While the tour is currently focused on its $5,000 buy-in bestbet Scramble event in Jacksonville, next month, all eyes will be on Las Vegas for what is going to be a historic series. Action starts Nov. 29 and the series runs through Dec. 23, just in time for Christmas. There are many major events on the schedule, none bigger than the $10,400 buy-in WPT World Championship, the first ever $40 million guaranteed poker tournament.

Ladies First

During the huge series, the World Poker Tour has multiple events planned exclusively for women. Not only that, but there will be a strong focus on showcasing women in poker on live-stream.

So, what are those events we're talking about? The first one is the biggest of them all, and that is the Dec. 6-8 WPT Ladies Championship, back for a second straight year. During the 2022 WPT World Championship series, the $1,100 buy-in tournament attracted 578 entrants, generating one of the largest ladies-only prize pools ever $560,660.

Lina Niu took it down, defeating Olga Iermolcheva heads-up to win $105,136. This year's Ladies Championship final table will be live-streamed on WPT.com Dec. 8.

We greatly appreciate the incredible support of the players who participated in last years Ladies Championship and are looking forward to an even bigger event this year, said WPT CEO Adam Pliska. We salute the many woman pioneers in this industry and are happy to be part of meaningful events that support our continued admiration.

The second event will be the Ladies Mimosa Meet-Up Game (MUG), which kicks off ec. 8 prior to the start of the Ladies Championship final table. Poker pro and commentator Jamie Kerstetter will host the MUG inside the Wynn poker room. Last year's event had over 150 players in the cash games.

On Dec. 14, the WPT will live-stream a Ladies Cash Game from 4:00-10:00 p.m. PT. There will also be an invite-only viewing party in the VIP Passport Lounge on Day 2 of the Ladies Championship (Dec. 7). Select members of the Poker League of Nations (PLON), Poker Power, Womens Poker Association (WPA) and Women in Poker Hall of Fame (WiPHoF) can attend.
