Ladies International Poker Series Announces new Championship for Fall

The Ladies International Poker Series (LIPS) has announced a new US Ladies Poker Championship that will take place this September. The Championship will take place on the 4th and 5th of September at the Golden Nugget Casino Grand Ballroom which is located in Las Vegas.

The new event will be available world wide via a live webcast so everyone can watch the action as it unfolds. There are not many women’s online tournaments and this event is expected to be a premier event for women in poker.

The format of the US Ladies Poker Championship allows poker rooms online as well as land based to host satellites. This way as many women as possible will be able to earn a seat to attend. The women who earn spots via satellite will be representing the poker room they win the satellite from. The winner of the event will earn two trophies, one for them and one for the poker room they represent.

The poker room that the winner represents will earn publicity from the Tour as well as get a guest appearance from a celebrity or poker pro which can be used for promotional purposes. Lupe Soto the LIPS founder commented that PokerStars and Victory Poker have already been running satellites online.

She also commented that land casinos have agreed to offer satellites as well. These casinos include: Bay 101, Bicycle, Phoenix and Ocean’s 11 in California as well as Golden Nugget and Peppermill of Nevada. The first Mega Satellite for the USLPC will take place on June 13th at 4pm at the Golden Nugget Casino.

The satellite will have a $150 plus $25 buy-in and will give one $1,500 package for every ten players entered. The package will include a $500 plus $50 buy-in to the new event as well as three nights’ hotel accommodations at the Golden Nugget Casino. It will also include $650 for travel expenses and an entry to the 2010 Women in Poker Hall of Fame banquet and ceremony.
