The third season of the Betfred.com Ladies Poker Tour has 8 stops, including one in Spain, between April 18 and November 7, 2009.
The Betfred Ladies Poker Tour kicks off on April 18, 2009 at the Alea Casino in Leeds, England. Players can qualify for the tournament at Betfred Poker for as little as $2. They also have weekly satellites each Thursday for $16.50.
