The Women's Poker League has grown into something immensely popular among the female players of PokerStars. Whether players join in for one month or more, or no matter which of the three buy-in divisions they choose, they can compete for cash prizes and seats in the year-end championship freeroll. Women of PokerStars enjoy the camaraderie as well as the competition.
While the perks of the WPL are many, another incentive was just added to the mix. Several Team PokerStars Pros will be participating in the November WPL events as bounties, and players will receive extra money for eliminating them. The division bounties are:
---$.10 Division = $5 for each eliminated Team Pro
---$1.10 Division = $10 for each eliminated Team Pro
---$5.50 Division = $20 for each eliminated Team Pro
Everyone from Celina Lin to Liv Boeree and Fatima de Melo will be participating throughout the month, and all of the bounty players can be found in the tournaments with the red PokerStars spade next to their names.
It's not always easy to sidle up next to a pro like Liv Boeree at the PokerStars tables, especially in high buy-in tournaments like the Sunday Million. Even the $55 Women's Sunday is out of bankroll reach for many players. That makes this promotion the perfect opportunity to play with pros like her in events that require as little as $.10 to enter.
In addition to the availability of bounties, every player who competes in the WPL in November - in any division - will receive a ticket to a Team Pro Bounty final tournament on December 8. A number of Team PokerStars Pros will play and offer bounties, and players will have a chance to play for $1,000 worth of PS Women Live tickets for the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. Those PCA seats are a hot commodity these days, as satellites are already underway to award seats for the Ladies Event in the Bahamas in January.
For the regular WPL players, you'll have no problem spotting the frequent Team Pros in the fields. For new players to the League, we welcome you to experiment with some of the different tournaments and discover why so many women participate in the WPL each month. And snag some Team Pro bounties while you can!
This special promotion runs only through the month of November and is for women only. We look forward to seeing the exciting WPL matchups and points races. Good luck to all participants.
