The Next WPC Showdown Tournament is to be held April 14 - 16, 2005 at TrumpÂs Taj Mahal in Atlantic City.
With four tournaments, optional poker classes, a seminar, and a satellite tournament for the World Series of Poker ladies event, the WPC Atlantic City Showdown promises to be the one of the most exciting and anticipated events for womenÂs poker this year.
ÂEven though more women are playing poker now then ever before, some men still feel that women are easy targets and donÂt have the ability to finesse their opponents at the tables.Â Said Maryann Morrison, President of Womens Poker Club. ÂThe WPC Showdown gives women an opportunity to show their poker playing talent by competing in major poker events, while having a tremendous amount of fun.Â
The Womens Poker Club was formed to encourage more women to enter the sport of poker by providing them with a supportive and congenial environment to improve their skills. They offer peer mentoring, free poker classes, and league events for women only. The club has over 1800 members world-wide.
ÂSince the Womens Poker ClubÂs inception, I have witnessed many members develop their play from a beginnerÂs level to where they are now playing semi-professional. Women can be tough poker contenders, and I expect to see many more of them at final tables everywhere this year.Â
Women have an opportunity to win their trip to the WPC Showdown for as little as $5 through competing in online satellite tournaments available exclusively at Pokerhost.com. The satellites are being held until the end of March.
The main tournament event of WPC Showdown will be played on Saturday, April 16th, a No Limit Texas Holdem Tournament with a buy in of $150+$20. The prize pool is estimated at $15,000.
Omaha hi-lo, Limit HoldÂem, and 7-card Stud Tournaments will preclude the main event. Plus women can play to win their entry at the Ladies event of the World Series of Poker.
WPC Atlantic City Showdown is open to all women.
