The BetFred Women’s Poker Tour is in full swing right now, with 4 out of 6 legs already played and only 2 more left for a chance to win a place in the grand final due to be played in December. With only 2 more chances left, all the ladies will be fighting to get 1st place at either Sheffield (27 Oct 07) or Birmingham (17 Nov 07) to guarantee a place on the final table. The 2 other seats will be filled by the players who have gained the most points throughout the length of the competition which started in Stoke on 23 June 2007.
The buy-in being a reasonable £100 has opened the doors to more ladies who might otherwise think that most tournament buy-ins are a little to steep for their purses. Its a long day as play starts at 3pm and ends 12 hours later with a chip count if there is no outright winner.
The victorious ladies of each leg so far are:
Sue Adams – Stoke
Vicki McKay – London
Samantha Grayson – Newcastle
Dawn Wood in Reading
I am going to be trying my chances to get to that final table myself and am hoping to play at the last 2 venues. The Grand Final promises to be an exciting day which I would love to be involved in and the prize is nothing to be sneered at. With BetFred offering a £20,000 year long sponsorship deal for the eventual winner, all the ladies will be eyeing each other up for as many tells as they can find, no doubt, hiding behind their shades and trying to bag everyone’s chips.
Watch this space to find out the winner of this fantastic tournament.
