PokerStars Women’s Sunday Birthday (vid)

shutterstock_129429854PokerStars Women’s Sunday Birthday bash was one of the greatest women’s events put online, with the ladies grilling the poker tables after a massively popular build up to the event.

There were birthday cakes made up, party decorations, and more sent in just to give the event that little extra feel to the revelries. The photographs were sent in for a competition where three lucky female poker players won a free ticket into the $55 Woman’s Sunday and anyone that took part in the photo race had a chance at getting into the big event for free via $5.50 satellite tickets.

Before the big tournament opened up the timer, after timer, there was a YouTube hangout in which Sarah Grant, who is part of PokerStars TV, turned up the heat getting all those involved on the edge of their seats in anticipation for what would be a real money spinner for the ladies that beat the bubble and booked a place at the final table.

Adrienne “hotjenny314” Dozier as well as Fatima Moreira de Melo all made appearances on the YouTube special, along with more big female names to wrap up what was an entertaining show encouraging the ladies’ poker scene. It was a real chit chat show about marriage, life and of course there was plenty of poker talk. You can see the 30 minute video below:

Leading up to the event there were literally thousands of females getting involved in the free rolls that would eventually see the winners launch their names onto the entrants list of the $20k guaranteed Lady’s Birthday Bash tournament. For those that bought in directly, the buy-in was $55 and there were some celebration incentives in a party bounty bonus.

For the ladies that could knock out any of the Team PokerStar pro ladies, there was a $100 bounty reward and of course there are always bragging rights to be had when you knock out a pro.
By the time the late registration clocked off the timer, there were an amazing 641 ladies in the action, reaching levels of events such as the Super Tuesday. With that, the prize pool was bumped up to $32,050 giving 99 bubble spots in the money. Very nice indeed!

The honours of the first prize and obviously the biggest number to come out of the prize-pool went to COBYHbR of the Ukraine. She pocketed $5,881.45 and the honour of claiming the female Birthday Bash Tournament title above all Team PokerStars pros and a large field of tough contestants.

All in all, this was a great success and well organised by the PokerStars ladies team, let’s hope we see more female poker stars coming through the ranks, adding to pokers diverse community of hot shots and bad beaters.
