LIPS Ladies’ Poker

The countdown has started! From 25th June until 1st July, poker followers will be all eyes on the famous LIPS poker tournament for women.

A series of events and championships are set to take place in Las Vegas. For those who want to add some spice to their poker skills before landing right into the games, Lynne Mitchnick – the famous woman poker player from the USA – will be conducting a seminar during 23rd and 24th June at a small cost of 250 dollars.

There will surely be a crowd for those attending the so-called ladies only “Golden Nugget” on 25th June. It will be this event that will see the LIPS poker week kick off in style, followed by an exiting Women’s Hall of Fame luncheon and Induction Ceremony the following day. Members of the Women Poker Association will get special discounts for this and other events.

The luncheon will, however, not be the only event taking place on 26th June. There is a series of highlights, such as the Ladies International Poker Championship Deepstack, the Helix poker university tuition with Jamie Kersettier, the Helix WSOP Ladies Championship Satellites and the Helix Cocktail Party Max Pawn.

Is that enough? No! On 27th, the Ladies International Poker Tour, the Helix Poker Diamond Bracelet Ladies Tournament, LIPS Deepstack Day 2 and Goliath Survivor in Planet Hollywood are also on, followed by more championship days on 28th, 29th, 30th June and 1st July.
