Ladies International Poker Series to Host New Ladies Poker Event in Nevada

The Ladies International Poker Series (LIPS) is hosting a new US Ladies Poker Championship in Las Vegas, Nevada this fall. The two-day $500+$50 women's poker event will begin on September 4th, 2010-September 5th, 2010 inside the Golden Nugget Casino Grand Ballroom in Las Vegas, Nevada. The tournament will be shown on a live webcast.

The number of female poker players continues to grow, but it is still less than 5% of the playing field in most major poker events. The world series of poker (WSOP) is one of the only major poker events highlighting female players and the 2010 USLPC, headed by LIPS founder Lupe Soto, believes that they are in a good position to become the premier poker tournament for female players.

The event will permit both online poker sites and land-based casinos to host satellite events. Poker rooms would take home a trophy and recognition should one of their satellite winners take home the title. Soto said that currently, Victory Poker and PokerStars have committed to running online poker satellites.

She said that casinos in California like Bay 101, Ocean's 11, Phoenix and Bicycle, along with Peppermill and Gold Nugget casinos in Nevada, have agreed to participate in the satellite events. Soto said that world has already spread even if promotions have not formally started.

The 1st USLPC Mega Satellite will be held on June 13th, 2010 at the Golden Nugget. The $150+$25 buy-in will award one $1,500 package for every ten players entered.

The package includes the $500+$50 buy-in, three night hotel accommodation at the Gold Nugget, $650 travel expenses and entry to the prestigious 2010 Women in Poker Hall of Fame Banquet and Ceremony.
