Ladies Poker Tour Major Event

Aug 1, 2007

When you think about Holdem Poker do you think about Las Vegas? What about Atlantic City? Does Tulsa come to mind? The Ladies Poker Association hopes it will after Aug. 5th.


The Ladies Poker Association will be held at the Cherokee Casino for their Pro-Tour Poker Tournament. Their first major event will be held featuring a 550-dollar buy in and expecting a crowd of more than 100 players. This would bring one of the biggest prize pots for the Ladies Poker Association of 55,000 dollars. Many of the Ladies tournaments are often passed over for the lack of significant money this is changing in August.


"This is the first $550 buy-in event on the LPA tour," said in a press release organizer Linda Johnson. "There are a lot of serious women players in the heartland of America, so I'm hoping for a large number of entries."


Registration started July 1st and satellites to qualify for the event will play every day until the Aug. 5th tournament. Linda Johnson will be attending the event, along with Jan Fisher - her business partner in Card Player Cruises.


In its first year, the LPA is still establishing its foothold as the organization making every effort to promote female poker players on the professional level. Their first tournament was held March 17th, bringing the LPA closer to the commitment of its founders, Crystal Osgood-Gray and Sherry Godfrey, who developed the Ladies Poker Association to give due recognition to women professional poker players.


The LPA will be working alongside the Cherokee Casino in what the partners hope will be a major new tournament for these players. To find out more, visit the Ladies Poker Association Web site. The Cherokee Casino, although not a world-renowned poker room, is at the forefront of the Oklahoma card scene. Its card room hosts 36 tables featuring a variety of games, and the casino has plans to offer additional services to its customers - in this case, particularly its female clients. "We are delighted to recognize the ladies in poker," said Rick O'Connell, the casino's director of poker and table games. "We have many distinguished women players."
