The Ladies International Poker Series, affectionately termed Ã¢â‚¬Å“LIPSÃ¢â‚¬Â, will be making a stop in Mariflores, Peru later this month, near the capital city of Lima. The series will kick off August 23rd at the host casino, Casino Atlantic City, running through September 1st, 2008.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are absolutely thrilled to be expanding into Latin America,Ã¢â‚¬Â commented LIPS Tour founder, Lupe Soto. Ã¢â‚¬Å“This is only the beginning of the new type of poker tourism weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be able to offer players. Our goal is to create great poker opportunities and amazing venues in which to play the game, as well.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The series will feature multiple, daily events, ranging from $225 to $500. Among the Early Bird events will be the highly anticipated mega-satellite, awarding winners with $200, plus a Super Pass of buy-ins to all LIPS events throughout the week, including the Main Event buy-in of $1,080. A ladies tournament and bounty tournament are also on the ledger.
