This is not because poker is a "sport" of guys not interested girls. PokerStars has understood it and it is not for nothing that there are also girls in their Team pros. Even though these represent only 3 to 5% of the pool of players, they must not be forgotten so far.
This is why PokerStars recently launched its "New Women's Poker League" (its women's poker League).
The League which will be held until the end of the year will have tournaments with low costs of entry, is $ 5.50. The player who has accumulated the most points during the month will be awarded prize money as well as a 'Ladies Luxury Event package'.
The tournaments will take place daily at 1:10 pm and 9:10 pm Eastern time. The player in first place will receive 20 points, the following players will receive points until the ninth place (good for 10 points). All players who participate will receive a point that will count for their final score. The player at the head of each classification will receive $300. Prizes will be awarded from the first to the 50th position. At the end of the year, yet most important prizes will be awarded to the players with the most participated in tournaments. The best player will receive $1500 and a "Ladies Luxury Event" award. The player in second place meanwhile will receive $1000.
