Next Monday marks International Women’s Day, an occasion we’ll be honouring in a number of ways on PokerStars, starting this weekend.
This coming Sunday we’re lowering the buy-in for the PokerStars Women’s Sunday, down from $55 to just $22, and we’re keeping it that way for the next few weeks.
But that’s not all.
We’ll also be adding three Sunday Million Anniversary tickets to the Women’s Sunday Prize Pool.
The top three finishers will each receive entry worth $215 to the 15th Anniversary event later this month. In case you need reminding, that event features a prize pool of $12.5 million guaranteed.
PokerStars Streamer GJ Reggie, who had a great run in last year’s IWD Sunday tournament finishing second, will also be streaming the tournament on her Twitch channel.
“We had lovely feedback from the community last year when we celebrated International Women’s Day. We had numerous activities, including making the Women’s Sunday event juicier, lowering the buy-in and giving more to play for, as well as shining a spotlight on our female community with special competitions and Platinum Pass giveaways,” said Rebecca McAdam Willetts, Associate Director of Consumer Engagement and Public Relations at PokerStars.
“Taking on board feedback about what our female players are looking for, we’ve added Sunday Million tickets to this event, and are looking closely at these tournaments to make sure they’re as engaging as can be going forward. We’ve been working behind the scenes, and while we will celebrate on International Women’s Day, there is so much more to come in our plans to make the game as great as it can possibly be for every player, every day.”
The Women’s Sunday tournament takes place this Sunday 7 March at 14:40 ET on PokerStars.com with late registration available for an hour and a half.
Satellites are also available starting at just $0.22.
There are more exciting things to come for our female community, including opening the doors for players to speak directly to us about all things poker and how we can improve their experience.
