WEEKLY LADIES POKER TOURNAMENT TO BE HELD AT THE M RESORT SPA CASINO EVERY THURSDAY
First regular tournament of its kind in the city starts Thursday, April 7
LAS VEGAS - April 4, 2011 - Beginning April 7, it's all about the ladies in the M Resort Spa Casino's poker room. The 14-table room will launch the first regular women's only tournament in the city on April 7. The weekly ladies' tournament will be held at 6 pm every Thursday and will offer a $1,000 guaranteed prize. Buy-in will be $55 and refreshments, gifts and prizes will also be offered to those playing.
"Our poker room is aggressive when it comes to tournaments and promotions," said Todd Buechler, Poker Room Manager at the M Resort. "We have Mini beats, progressive high-hand jackpots, four-of-a kind bonuses and great guaranteed prize pool daily tournaments, but we've never done a promotion for the women. After getting player feedback from many of our regular women players, we decided it was about time."
The weekly ladies tournament will run concurrently with the M's regular 6 pm tournament so spouses, friends and family can play at the same time. The ladies tournament will also have a guest speaker each week at 5 pm, prior to the tournament. The April 7 tournament will kick-off with professional poker player Linda Johnson. Johnson is credited as being the "First Lady of Poker" and in 1997 she won a World Series of Poker bracelet.
"As a woman poker player, it's important to encourage other women to venture into the world of tournament play. This is great way to do that and it's a stepping-stone for ladies to learn the ins and outs and get experience in a non-intimidating environment," said Patty Yamano, a regular poker player at the M Resort's poker room.
