Betfred Ladies Poker Tour hits Liverpool

Crystalynn Harris - 21 May 2008

The Betfred Ladies Poker Tour is heading to Liverpool this weekend for the second heat of this year’s event - the final of which will be screened live on Setanta Sports.

The action is taking place at the city’s Stanley Circus Casino on Saturday for what promises to be one of the most exiting and competitive heats in this year’s tour.

Winner of the first leg in Newcastle, Michelle Bennett is hoping to make it two out of two after her victory on Tyneside enabled her to pay for a dream holiday in Vegas.

“The tournament in Newcastle was amazing. There was a terrific atmosphere and it was a dream come true to finally win having come close on a couple of occasions next year.  Liverpool promises to be even better and I can’t wait to play,” said Michelle, from Huddersfield.

Entry to each event costs £100, plus a £10 casino/card room administration fee, and Betfred are exclusive online satellites at betfredpoker.com with entry from as little as $1. Betfred are adding £1,000 to the prize pool of each regional event and £4,000 to the final prize pool.

Each regional heat winner will gain a seat in the grand final and the eventual winner will be crowned ‘Betfred Women’s Poker Tour Champion 2008’ and will win a £20,000 sponsorship package from Betfred for 2009.
